I had a cheek implant (awhile ago) but i was thinking of having buccal fat removed. Would this be ok? I mean, the cheek implant won't get in the way or anything will it?

Buccal Fat Removal after Cheek Implants
The is no anatomic reason not to have buccal fat removal after cheek implants. However, I'm not a fan of buccal fat removal. As we age we normally lose facial fat and therefore a patient who had removal of buccal fat may have unwanted depressions of the cheeks later in life.
