Buccal Fat Removal

If you are unhappy with your “chubby” cheeks, buccal fat removal may be the ideal solution for achieving slimmer facial contours. With his advanced techniques and vast experience, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Parham Ganchi provides the best buccal fat removal in New Jersey.

What Is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal is a facial cosmetic surgery that eliminates the appearance of full or “chipmunk” cheeks. Buccal fat pads are fatty deposits located between the corner of the mouth and the nostril. Large buccal fat pads can develop due to weight gain or can be hereditary.

Removing these fatty deposits helps to sculpt more elegant facial contours. The cheekbones and jawline take on a more chiseled, defined appearance as a result of this procedure.

Am I a Candidate?

Candidates for buccal fat removal can be men or women who desire slimmer, more distinguished cheek contours. Patients must be non-smokers and free of any medical conditions that can interfere with the body’s healing process.

The best way to determine your candidacy is to meet with Dr. Ganchi for a consultation. During the consultation, a physical examination will be performed, and Dr. Ganchi will review your medical history. If buccal fat removal is not the best treatment option for you, Dr. Ganchi will develop an alternative treatment approach to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Buccal Fat Removal Procedure

The procedure begins with anesthesia. Dr. Ganchi will choose between intravenous sedation and general anesthesia, based on your needs.

Buccal fat removal requires an incision on the inner portion of each cheek. This allows Dr. Ganchi to access the buccal fat pads for removal.

Once the buccal fat pads have been removed, sutures will be placed to close the incisions. You will then be taken to a recovery area to rest until Dr. Ganchi approves you to return home.

Buccal Fat Removal Recovery and Results

You will receive personalized aftercare instructions to guide you through the buccal fat removal recovery process. These instructions explain how to care for the incision sites, how to take any prescribed medications, and when to return to the office for follow-up appointments with Dr. Ganchi.

Dr. Ganchi may recommend that you follow a liquid diet during the initial stage of your recovery. Mouth rinses may also be advised to ensure optimal healing.

Post-procedure swelling will subside over the following months to reveal your new cheek contours. Maintaining a healthy weight will ensure that you can enjoy your buccal fat removal results for many years.

How Much Does Buccal Fat Removal Cost?

The cost of buccal fat removal depends on the specific details of your procedure. The total surgery time, complexity of your surgery, and whether you combine buccal fat removal with additional facial cosmetic surgeries will affect the price.

Dr. Ganchi and his team are the best around! The facility is absolutely beautiful. During my consultation appointment, I immediately felt welcome and comfortable. My rhinoplasty surgery was more than successful and recovery was quick and painless! 1 year later and I'm still complimented on his beautiful work!

I just had my rhinoplasty surgery 1 week ago . Dr. Ganchi did an amazing job. Exactly what I was hoping for is what I received. I was unsure about the surgery and the process because I never had any before. The whole staff was great, patient, understanding and took great care of me. Dr. Ganchi has such a soft, gentle touch and takes his time. It shows with the results. Very minimal bruising first day and after that gone. Day by day, results are getting better and better. If you are feeling hesitant or have concerns let me ease your mind and tell you, they were great and you are in great hands.

Recently I had reconstructive nose surgery. The process was simple. So far I am 10 days into the recovery phase. It has not been scary or dreadful. Swelling around the eyes reduced after a few days! All that is left is keeping my nose protected! If you follow the instructions that Dr. Ganchi and his team lay out for you then it is smooth sailing!

The best of the best. Dr. G and his whole staff are amazing. Honestly, you get what you pay for. He is so knowledgeable, comforting and surprisingly funny. Layla and Karen are also little angels. I can’t recommend Dr. G’s office enough. He has changed my life for the better and I’m forever grateful.

Greetings all! I recently had labiaplasty done with Dr.Ganchi. I found Dr.Ganchi’s practice long before life gave me time to proceed with this procedure. Therefore I was very happy through each step of the way. After a wonderful consultation in which Dr.Ganchi thoroughly explained what I should expect as far as having the procedure done and the healing process etc. I too am thorough and was left without a question to ask. The front desk staff is fabulous. They were informative which made me feel comfortable and at ease. I even purchased a facial and they were sweet and helpful. The surgery room was airy and I loved my view. I was totally comfortable during the entire procedure. I went right in and in no time I was home. The healing process was just as I was told it would be so felt just fine all throughout. I went back to work on the seventh day after the procedure. I am proud of myself for achieving this and you should too. It’s a life changer in many ways, from clothes feeling comfortable to wiping differently after peeing. I will certainly continue seeing Dr.Ganchi for other procedures, he is really the best! Thank you Dr.Ganchi!!

Best decision I've ever made. Period. For most, plastic surgery decisions are life changing. Not only physically, but mentally as well. Going under the knife voluntarily is a wild experience because YOU choose the surgeon, and with the surgeon, their team. Let me just say real quick...Dr G., Laila, Karen, and Marcela are NJ's DREAM TEAM. I had a breast augmentation performed at the end of June 2021, and WOW. Worth. Every.Penny. It hasn't even been a month of recovery and my results are amazing. I feel so sexy, so confident, and so complete. Brings me tears knowing something I've wanted for ten years, is here, and I've been given exactly what I dreamt of. Dr.G is the REAL DEAL. They make me feel like family when I'm there and can't wait to continue seeing them... from my breasts to my routine botox.. there's nothing he can't do.

Dr Ganchi is a wonderful, caring doctor and a true artist. He put me back together again after four kids that did a number on my abdominals and I am so grateful to have found him. My results are unbelievable. His staff is also top notch and hold your hand through every step of the process. I would recommend him without hesitation.

I am in LOVE with the results of my breast augmentation! Dr. Ganchi and his staff exceeded my expectations and made me feel very comfortable throughout this entire process. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about him and his staff and they are all 100% accurate. Dr. Ganchi truly transformed my body and my confidence and I will forever be grateful! I have already referred him to a couple of my friends, and highly encourage others to do the same!

Dr. Ganchi and his staff are the best of the best. They all made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Ganchi is so gentle, which made my recovery process painless and easy. I was worried about the recovery process for a rhinoplasty, but I would do it all over again if I had to. It was so much easier than I thought it was going to be all thanks to Dr. Ganchi. I will definitely be recommending Dr. Ganchi to everyone I know!!!
