BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL
COSMETIC SURGERY PROCEDURES
Some people, both young and old, are very self-conscious about the shape and appearance of their cheeks especially if they look round and chubby. This may be secondary to cheek fat, known as buccal fat.
Buccal fat are fat pads that augment the lower part of the cheeks resulting in “chubby cheeks,” or “chipmunk cheeks”. This condition may be due to being overweight or even a genetic predisposition. Buccal fat removal, also called cheek reduction surgery, offers a solution to those who want to reduce the size of their cheeks. Removal of these fat pads can slim the cheeks and contour the face resulting in a more chiseled appearance.
