Love Your Newly Contoured Look with Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal fat pad excision is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of a portion of the buccal fat pads, which are located in the cheeks. This procedure creates a more defined cheekbone or reduces the fullness of the cheeks in patients who have a “chubby” or “baby-faced” appearance. Buccal fat removal is an ideal way to slim down full cheeks and achieve a more sculpted look for the lower face. Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS brings a passion for innovation to each procedure he performs and will work closely with you to craft a customized treatment plan that is tailored directly to your personal goals. When you’re ready to get started, reach out to our Beverly Hills location and set up your initial consultation with Dr. Rogers today.
