Buccal Fat Removal in Draper, UT

Your face can make a significant difference in your overall look. For example, if you are striving to achieve a slimmer, sculpted appearance, chubby cheeks can seriously undermine your efforts. At Maglic Plastic Surgery, we offer buccal fat removal, a procedure that targets fat pads in the lower cheeks to highlight the cheekbones and give your face a more chiseled aesthetic. During your consultation in Draper, UT, plastic surgeon Dr. Dino Maglic will learn about your cosmetic goals and develop a custom-tailored buccal fat removal plan to help you achieve your desired look.

Buccal fat removal is typically performed with local anesthesia or sedation to help you keep comfortable and relaxed. The entire process is performed at our Draper, UT practice and usually takes about an hour. To start, Dr. Maglic will make incisions on the inside of your mouth to expose the fat pads within your cheeks. The pads will be removed, and the incisions will be carefully sutured shut. The healing process can take some time, and you may have some swelling around your mouth, but this is temporary.

Nothing is more frustrating than working hard to lose weight only to be left with prominent buccal fat. If you want to address the appearance of chubby cheeks, buccal fat removal at Maglic Plastic Surgery offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Enhancing the profile of your jaw and face
  • Creating a more well-proportioned facial structure
  • Removing stubborn fat
  • Improving confidence and self-image

If you're unhappy with the way your face looks in photos or feel self-conscious about chubby cheeks, buccal fat removal offers a way to refine and sculpt your profile to the look you desire. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Maglic at our Draper, UT practice to learn more and get started. Get the chiseled look you want at Maglic Plastic Surgery.

I was referred to Dr. Maglic and the Premier Plastic Surgery group by my primary care physician. My entire experience could not have been more positive. This is a group that focuses on and has clearly invested in service. Professional touchpoints, fully informative conversations, treatment follow-ups, and genuine personal engagement. Pleasant experience and positive outcomes to the services provided.

Dr Maglic is hands down one of the best plastic surgeons in the state of Utah. His attention to detail and patient care are second to none. He revised a tummy tuck for me and it looks 100 times better than the first doctor that did it. I also have a few friends that have had breast augmentations with him and we all agree that there isn’t another doctor we would go to.

I wish I could add more stars for this review as 5 do not do Dr. Maglic justice. From the initial meeting, I was completely put at ease with his professionalism and his competency. He listened to all my expectations and concerns and provided me with the utmost confidence that he could and would deliver. The surgery, postop, office staff, and, most importantly, results have exceeded every expectation and I cannot recommend Dr. Maglic enough to anyone who wants the very best plastic surgeon in Utah. There’s nobody else I would recommend more and you will only be disappointed if you go somewhere else.
