What is Buccal Fat Removal?
Though some of our Plano, TX patients are looking to achieve fuller, plumper cheeks, many individuals are desiring to reduce cheek fat with buccal fat removal. When you are desiring a more contoured appearance to your face, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho with Beyond Beautiful Texas can provide buccal fat removal with the use of advanced techniques. Also referred to as cheek fat reduction, this procedure precisely targets the cheek area to decrease fat and tissue for a more sculpted, slimmer look. Throughout this treatment, Dr. Ho carefully and delicately removes buccal fat pad tissue that is found within the cheek hollows. The area is then repositioned and redefined so that your cheekbones have a naturally rejuvenated look.

Can i have buccal fat removed?
Ideal candidates for buccal fat removal are those who may not be happy with the volume of their mid-face area. They may desire to reduce the appearance of rounder, less defined appearance that their cheeks bring to their face and wish to decrease buccal fat for a slimmer, more defined look. During a thorough consultation at our Plano, TX facility, Dr. Ho will be able to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for this popular procedure.
Based on the amount of tissue and fat that resides under and around the cheekbones, Dr. Ho will curate a personalized treatment approach for buccal fat removal. For the actual surgery, anesthesia is provided and a small incision is created within the inside of the mouth. Next, the buccal fat pad will be removed and the incisions will be carefully closed with sutures. In some instances, the cheekbones might need to be slightly repositioned, and this can be completed with sutures for a natural, enhanced outcome.

"I am so happy with the results! Thank you Dr. Vu Ho - August 2019 I choose Dr.Vu Ho for a mid, lower facelift and am so very happy I did! I had visited with Dr. Vu Ho a few yrs prior but had some unforeseen circumstances, and had to wait. He patiently listened to my wishes to tighten up my jowls, and explained what he could do for me. I am so thankful he was my surgeon as I trusted him wholeheartedly!!Look at my before and after especially the side view!! Thank you Dr. Vu Ho :)"- F. / RealSelf / Feb 03, 2020
"I've been seeing Dr Vu Ho for as many years as he's been in Plano. I recently had my eyelids done (upper blepharoplasty) and I am thrilled with my results. Dr Ho listens and answers all questions. He is so skilled and also so down to earth. His surgical assistant Liz is also wonderful.. personable and caring as well as professional. Over the years I have received Botox and fillers from Dr Ho, and I have always been pleased and never had a problem. Tami and Amber at the front desk are always welcoming, friendly and helpful. They are great ambassadors for the practice. I recently had 3 Fractora treatments from Sarah and she is amazing. She is very experienced and was fun, yes, fun, to have as my aesthetician. I also had a hydra facial with her recently and had an excellent result. I hope Dr Ho never leaves Plano as I can't imagine going anywhere else for my facial "upkeep"". Thanks!"- B.C. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2020
"Immediate results, Dr Ho is amazing! - Dr Ho is amazing! He is honest with his evaluation and sets reasonable expectations on results. I had saggy skin under my chin and he fixed it with threads and Botox. Immediately could see the difference. His staff are super nice as well and the office is nice and clean."- N. / RealSelf / Jan 24, 2020
After Your Buccal Fat Removal
After buccal fat removal surgery, patients may notice some slight bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort during the healing process. The total amount of time for the recovery period is usually quite quick. Immediately after this treatment, even with some swelling, the initial results can be seen immediately. As soon as the swelling has gone down and the cheeks adjust to their new position, the final outcome can become noticeable, leaving patients with slimmer and well-defined cheeks.
