Buccal Fat Reduction | Washington, D.C., & Arlington

Sculpt a Younger,
More Balanced Face

Buccal fat pads are large collection of fat that can give your face a rounder, “chipmunk” appearance. As you age, this buccal fat can also cause your lower face to look heavy or jowly.

If you want to remove these fat stores and restore balance to your facial features, then a buccal fat reduction with Dr. Cabin can help. Our board-certified, internationally recognized surgeon is an expert in using this minimally invasive, no-scar technique to give your face the leaner, younger, balanced look you want.

What Is Buccal Fat Reduction?

Buccal fat reduction is a specialized, minimally invasive procedure aimed at giving your face a more balanced shape by addressing excess fat in your cheeks.

By carefully making a small incision within your mouth to access the buccal fat pads, Dr. Jonathan Cabin helps patients like you get a more sculpted, natural-looking face free of scarring.

How It Works

During the procedure, Dr. Cabin will make a small incision within the mouth. This discreet, minimally invasive technique allows Dr. Cabin to access the buccal fat pads, which contribute to lower cheek fullness.

Next, Dr. Cabin carefully removes an appropriate amount of excess fat to get the defined, balanced, natural-looking results you want. The incision is then closed, leaving virtually no visible external scars.
