We all have areas of our face or body that we feel self-conscious about and for some people that area is the cheeks. Chubby cheeks on kids are considered the hight of cuteness, but as we get older cheek fullness isn’t a particularly desired trait. The fat in the cheeks, known as buccal fat, can can make a fat look look wider, rounder, and chubbier than a person wants. Dr. Kanodia performs Cheek Fat Reduction with local anesthesia and a tiny incision (less than 1cm) on the inside of the cheek in the mouth so there are no scars. Dr. Kanodia always works to preserve some of the fat to prevent a sunken-in appearance from developing over time. The cheek fat reduction procedure takes only 30 minutes to complete and with a healthy diet and regular exercise schedule the results can be maintained throughout the patient’s life.
