Many of our patients find that the cheeks can remain relatively resistant to a reduction in size despite appropriate weight loss.
Dr Chaithan Reddy has performed thousands of intra-oral procedures, having also trained in Dental & Oral surgery. When performed in an appropriate and safe manner, the procedure can result in a noticeable improvement in overall cheek contour.

Am I a good candidate for cheek reduction surgery?
Cheek reduction surgery is a procedure entailing removal of part of the ‘Buccal fat’, which is a fat deposit located in our cheeks. The size of the buccal fat can vary significantly amongst individuals, and there is often a strong genetic component that dictates how much Buccal fat an individual has. Where the goal is reduce fuller cheeks, then cheek reduction (buccal fat reduction) surgery can be a very good surgical option to improve definition and cheek contour.
