‘Chipmunk Cheeks’ is a common term for people with larger pads of fat in the face, and it is a common request to change this appearance.

This procedure is minimally invasive and only a local anaesthetic is required, there would be no external scarring from the procedure as the surgeons will incise from the inside of the mouth, between the gums and the cheek.

Once the buccal fat is extracted, the incision is closed with dissolvable sutures, therefore there is no need to return to have the stitches removed.

The recovery time is minimal and you can recouperate in the comfort of your own home.
