This intervention involves the removal of fat accumulated in the cheeks, also known as Bichat’s fat pads, which give the face a rounded aspect.

Recommended especially in cases of hypertrophy (excessive increase) of the Bichat’s fat pads, the Buccal Fat Pad Extraction is performed to change the face shape, making it thinner and creating a thinner or less childlike look.

Surgical intervention is made using an incision inside the mouth and may be performed under local anesthesia, with or without sedation.

Plastic surgeon Guilherme Graziosi M.D., who works in Icaraí (Niterói), warns that this procedure, although relatively simple, must be performed by a professional who is familiar and experienced with the region. Moreover, the procedure must always be performed in a hospital.
