In my mid-30's, slim, have always disliked what appears to be extra fat and/or skin under the cheekbone near the nose. It has not improved much with age, if anything just sagging now. What solution, if any, would be recommended from these photos? Thanks in advance.

Would buccal fat pad removal help?
To be a candidate for buccal fat pad removal requires thorough assessment given the fact that it is a delicate procedure and the buccal fat pad should be approached conservatively.
If performed by an extensively experienced surgeon, commendable results will show and the Ogee curve will be achieved.
Without a complete representation of your face and a physical examination, a complete assessment is hard to establish.
Nonetheless, there are several alternatives to consider in order to enhance the natural beauty of your face and develop the "heart shaped" facial composition.
Seeking a consultation with the right surgeon will help you make a solid decision and achieve the best results.
Thank you for posting your photographs.
Best of luck to you.
