Does Buccal Fat Removal Reduce The Nasolabial Folds?

By July 18, 2022 No Comments
Buccal fat removal is one of the plastic surgeries growing in popularity exponentially. With a slim, defined face in fashion, many celebrities and personalities are getting cheek fat removal surgery to maintain a slim-looking face. However, what other benefits does the procedure have? Specifically, does buccal fat removal reduce the nasolabial folds?”   In some patients, descending cheek fat can contribute to the deepening and formation of the nasolabial folds. Therefore, in these patients, removing some or all of the small buccal fat pad can help reduce the appearance of the nasolabial folds. It is important to note though, that in some patients, removing the buccal fat pad could actually worsen the nasolabial folds.    Ultimately, it is best to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine the ideal treatment for your nasolabial folds. This could include smile line filler, a midface lift, buccal fat removal, or various other procedures.   To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
