I've had problems with my bloated face for years that no amount of diet and exercise could fix. I wanted something that could reduce the size of my lower jowls, and increase the definition around my chin. I sought the advice of a few plastic surgeons and eventually landed on this one. I don't... READ MORE

Last night I did buccal pad removal out of the recommendation of my doctor. I was set on a chin implant but agreed to do the buccal as well as I thought my face needed some subtle slimming. The procedure went well and the only time I felt pain was when the anesthesia were being injected into my... READ MORE

Today, I paid my deposit for a series of facial procedures set for April 18. I am turning 35 this summer, and if these procedures are anything like my breast augmentation, it will take at least 3 months to look and feel normal again. I hope to feel happier by the time I blow out the candles on... READ MORE

I went in for a consultation for lipo to get rid of my double chin and improve my jaw line. Turns out I was a great candidate for that and Dr. Orloff also suggested buccal fat removal to sculpt my face even further. I'm so happy I did both procedures, couldn't be happier with the results! I had... READ MORE

I've always wanted a chiseled look and thought cheekbone implants would be the route to take. I've gotten sick of contouring and highlighting every day and the Radiesse injections (which I love the results) every 6 months was starting to add up financially. After months of researching, I...

Just got out of buccal fat removal surgery. I'll keep it short and sweet. Took some Ativan, was no longer nervous but feeling relaxed and high. Waited 30 mins for the drugs to kick in and Dr. B. came in to check in on me and inject my cheeks with a ton of freezing. Once we were ready, away we... READ MORE

Dear RealSelfs, I've had my buccal fat pad removed today morning. It took less than 1 hour, and it might be done even quicker, if I wasn't a special case (as usual). My surgeon started with my left side and couldn't find the fat pad anywhere in my middle cheek area, so he went little higher,... READ MORE

I know I'm late to the party, but here I am..... I saw Dr. Creasman in July of 2014 for a buccal fat pad excision. It is now 2/9/2016, and I am very pleased with the outcome. The "before" pictures are from 2012, the "after" pictures are 6 months post op. Not much to say other than the surgery... READ MORE
