What is buccal fat pad reduction in Atlanta?

Buccal fat pads are fat deposits located between the nostril and the corner of the mouth. Buccal fat pads are the leading cause of what we know commonly as chubby cheeks. When buccal fat pads are reduced, the patient’s face takes on a slimmer, more defined shape.

Buccal Fat Pad Reduction

At Atlanta Surgical Arts, Dr. C. Carson Huynh is proud to offer buccal fat pad reduction.

This procedure is often performed with local anesthesia only or with light intravenous sedation for maximal relaxation.

Dr. Huynh will make a small incision on the inside of the cheek. He will then identify the buccal extension of the fat pad, and determine how much of the fat pad can be removed safely. A radiofrequency tip will be used to remove the desired fat from the pad, and the incisions are closed using dissolving stitches.

The procedure is relatively brief, traditionally taking just under an hour. The recovery process typically takes 3-5 days, and final results are visible after several weeks when all swelling has dissipated.

Great doctor! I've stick with him for two years and recommended this place to my friends. Dr. Hynh did a great job in filler. Results have been great and almost no bruise or downtime. He is very considerate and honest with the result and that makes him very trust-worthy. I feel most comfortable in this place than any other clinics I visited in Atlanta. He has a great sense of aesthetic and expertise in Asian face.

Great doctor, Dr Carson Hyunh is THE BEST!!! He is very smart and know what he is doing. The front office ladies Vanessa, Yanet and Harriett are very friendly too!! Just like coming home whenever I see them, made me feel at ease at every single appointment. I had a lot of questions but they patiently answers it. Changed my appointment so many time because I don't live local and very busy, they always accommodate me. I will stick with them for a very long time! Recommended, would give ten stars if there's an option for it :D I love them ❤️. They do thing professionally with highest level of care.

Dr. Carson did injectable fillers on my nasal folds, marionette lines and lips. He did an amazing job and my results far exceeded my expectations. I’ve had fillers before and bruised really bad. I had absolutely no bruising and the results were immediate. Dr. Carson is the best!!!
