When you have excess Buccal Fat, the cheeks can seem disproportionately large in comparison to the rest of the face. A procedure called Buccal Fat Removal or Cheek Reduction surgery can remove the stubborn Buccal Fat that is difficult to reduce simply through diet and exercise. The removal of this Buccal Fat can enhance your natural features and highlight your cheekbones and facial bone structure.

San Francisco Cheek Reduction is performed in under an hour using a tiny incision in the lining of the mouth. This procedure will leave you with natural looking results and no visible scars. Patients will be on a liquid diet for their first day of recovery and progress to soft food for the following 3-5 days as they recover. By three weeks post-surgery most of the swelling will be gone, though residual mild swelling can last for up to 4 months.
