Cheek Reduction Surgery
Some patients are not troubled with sunken, hollow cheeks, as their issue stems from the opposite condition. Their cheeks may seem more full or too round and even disproportionate to the rest of their face. Men and women may both desire a slimmer, more nuanced face. Men and women may both desire a slimmer contoured face that communicates a more mature and defined and appearance.
Cheek reduction surgery is a facial cosmetic procedure that seeks to reduce the round effect of the face for a slimmer, more toned appearance. While this may seem trivial to some, to others who are displeased with their appearance, it can be a major source of embarrassment and even a confidence-killer.

Buccal Fat Removal in Reno
Cheek reduction surgery in Reno/Tahoe typically involves buccal fat removal. The mass of fat in the cheek is called the buccal fat pad. In some people, it can be a larger mass that causes the rounder, fuller aesthetic of the face that some find undesirable. In a buccal fat removal procedure, Dr. Dayan typically makes a few small incisions inside the mouth, through which he can remove the buccal fat pads and any other fatty tissue necessary.
The scars are completely invisible inside the mouth, leaving no evidence of surgery on your face. He can also perform some fat transfer contouring during this procedure to create a smoother, toned appearance that blends seamlessly with the rest of your face. The procedure can be done on an outpatient basis in just an hour or so, and you will return home the same day.
Dr. Dayan will provide you with complete aftercare instructions for caring for your incisions, pain relief and successful recovery. You will return for a follow-up visit in a week or two, so he can ensure you are healing properly and any postoperative swelling is going away. Your full results should be evident within three to four weeks, although an immediate difference will be noticeable on the day of surgery.
