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.

This Korean patient desired a more prominent projected and refined nose, along with more visible upper eyelids and defined jawline. She also had prior tattoo and subsequent scarring to the eyebrows, which was successfully treated with an eyebrow transplant of 500 grafts. She underwent as well buccal fat removal to create a more sculpted mid-face.
