These are photos taken during a buccal fat removal procedure. This is a 30 minute procedure, usually performed under just a local anesthetic and, if desired, oral sedation for relaxation. The procedure involves the removal, through the inside of the mouth, of the collection of fat that makes the face look “chubby”, similar to what is seen in a baby.
