Tucson Cosmetics Buccal Fat Removal
Buccal Fat Removal is aimed at people who have fullness in the lower lateral cheeks that desire a thinner look to the lower face.
Buccal Fat Removal is not a new procedure but has immensely increased in popularity due to celebrities having the procedure done. Buccal Fat Removal has been referred to as “The Industry Secret To Chiseled Cheekbones” by countless fashion magazines and photographers. Although a face that is naturally soft and filled out is considered youthful, some people find that their face feels too full, even chubby.
What is Buccal Fat Removal?
The buccal fat pad is located on either side of the face, in the lower lateral cheeks. The surgical treatment aims to thin the cheeks, giving clients a more defined cheek and jawbone area.
The Buccal Fat Removal Procedure
Buccal fat removal is a surgical procedure to improve the fullness of the cheeks. Buccal fat surgery involves removing, through a small incision, all or part of the buccal fat pad, which is located below each cheekbone in between the buccinator muscle and other facial muscles. In the right candidate, the result is a slimmer mid-face, the surgical equivalent of very slightly sucking in your cheeks. The size of the buccal fat pad varies with each individual patient, and the buccal fat pad in each cheek may be different sizes. Like everything else at Tucson Cosmetics, buccal fat removal surgery is individualized for each patient.
What are the Non-Surgical Options?
Botox Facial Slimming is an off-label use of Botox. Botox can be injected into the masseter muscle resulting in a slimmer look for up to 6 months. Thermage® Skin Tightening and Fraxel® are non-surgical tightening and lifting options.
Tucson Cosmetics Jowl Fat Removal
Jowl Fat Removal is aimed at people who have fullness in the lower face that desire lift and a thinner look to the lower face and jawline.
Jowl Fat Removal has become popular with older patients as a way to redefine the jawline and lift the lower face. For younger patients, not yet experiencing the natural fat descent that comes with aging, Jowls Fat Removal aids in the chiseled looks genetics may not have offered.
What is Jawl Fat removal?
Jowl fat causes excess fullness in the lower face whether from natural aging or genetics. Removing jowl Fat deposits and excess droopy skin along the lower part of the face helps to define the jawline and lift the lower face. Jowl fat removal surgery is performed with tumescent Vaser liposuction. The fat is removed and the skin is tightened with the ultrasound technology of Vaser®.
What are the Non-Surgical Options?
Kybella® injections can be used off-label to address this area. Treatment for this area generally takes 2 to 3 sessions a few weeks apart with results fully present within 4 weeks. When injected into fat, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Am I a Candidate for Buccal Fat Pad Removal?
Buccal fat removal surgery is typically not performed in people with thin, narrow faces as removal of the fat may cause the face to look gaunt with age.
