Buccal Fat Removal

Some people have full, rounded cheeks because of a thick pad of fat tissues in the cheeks, known as buccal fat. Most people have thin buccal fat pads, but some people have excess fat in the area, which makes their facial features appear puffy or rounded. Excessive fat tissues in the cheeks may make it seem like you have a “baby face” or “moon face.” Buccal fat removal is a surgical procedure wherein excess fat tissues are removed from the cheeks via small incisions made inside the mouth. Removing excess fat tissues from the cheeks gives you a slimmer and more contoured look.

Chin Augmentation

A prominent chin is an essential component of your facial symmetry and harmony. It makes your face look balanced, giving you a well-defined and chiseled jawline. A recessed or underdeveloped chin can affect your self-image and confidence. Chin augmentation surgery is performed to permanently enhance the chin projection. This is usually done by placing a chin implant directly on the chin bone via a small incision inside the mouth or underneath the chin. The incision is sutured closed after placing the implant, initiating the recovery process. Dr. Boustany will curate the ideal treatment plan to provide the ideal chin projection.

Earlobe Repair

Your earlobes may be torn or split due to numerous factors, such as the long-term use of heavy earrings or your earrings being pulled. You might be a candidate for earlobe repair if you have an excessively large or long earring hole or if it’s torn completely through. Dr. Boustany performs a simple earlobe repair under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. The surgery involves removing the damaged parts of the skin and using sutures to place the remaining parts of the skin together. The procedure usually concludes within 20 minutes, following which you can return home and resume normal activities.

Facial Fat Grafting

Facial fat grafting is a procedure wherein fat tissues are transferred from one part of your body to the face. This is usually performed to restore volume to the mid-face or under-eye regions or correct scars. The procedure is performed in three simple steps. First, the surgeon draws unwanted fat tissues from another part of your body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. Second, the fat tissues are cleansed and purified, isolating the healthy fat cells. Third, the purified fat cells are carefully injected into targeted areas on your face via small injections, making your cheeks look fuller and more youthful.


Otoplasty, also known as cosmetic ear surgery, is a procedure wherein the shape, size, or position of your ears is changed. You might be a suitable candidate for this procedure if your ears stick out far from your head, are disproportionately large, or if you’re simply dissatisfied with how they look. Some people also consider an otoplasty to correct congenital issues related to the ear. Dr. Boustany will carefully examine your ears, discuss your goals, and curate the ideal treatment plan. The surgery is performed in our premier Boston hospital by Harvard-affiliated healthcare professionals.
