As I have gotten older)(now 49), gained and lost weight, my cheeks are now very unbalanced. Regardless of weight loss, they are still uneven.Could this surgery be the solution to my problem?

Buccal Fat Pad Removal to Balance out Cheeks
Although a photograph cannot replace a physical examination, it looks like you will not benefit from a buccal fat pad removal as much as if you consider other alternatives such as fat injection in depressed areas.
I encourage you to seek a consultation with a considerably experienced surgeon who will guide you through making the right decision that best fits your facial features and preserve your natural looks.
Thank you for sharing your photograph.
Good luck to you.

Buccal fat pad removal not advised
Removal of the buccal fat pad can be a remarkably effective, yet simple technique. One should be wary of the longterm implications of removal of fat from the face in general. Removal of the buccal fat pad in older males may result in a hollowed appearance to the cheeks which is usually not desirable.
