Smartlipo/Slimlipo/Laser Liposuction not possible in the face

The only appropriate technique to removal buccal fat is direct removal.  Liposuction is not done in this area of the face.  Buccal fat removal could work well for your face.   I would caution that your surgeon should not remove too much fat as this could make your cheeks look too hollow.
