In our youth, round “chipmunk cheeks” are adorable. As an adult, though, they can make your face look poorly defined and less attractive. Buccal fat reduction can remove unwanted volume, leaving you with a more sculpted look.
What to Expect During Your Procedure
Your fat extraction can be performed fairly quickly in the comfort of Dr. Murphy’s Palm Beach Gardens office. To begin, he will administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety before making tiny incisions inside the cheeks. Through those openings, he will apply gentle pressure to remove the fat pads that fill out your cheeks, unveiling a more sculpted, defined, and slender facial appearance. If you also have extra fat around the jawline, Dr. Murphy will commonly perform precise liposuction simultaneously to fully revitalize your face and ensure that you’re thrilled with the results. Once your unwanted volume has been removed and he has sculpted your new, angular appearance, Dr. Murphy will close the incisions with dissolvable sutures and send you home to begin the healing process.
