Buccal Fat Removal for a 21 y.o. male
It is crucial to keep in mind that aging causes the atrophy of the buccal fat pad; so it is essential to be a candidate for buccal fat pad removal before considering it as a viable option, especially at young age.
Malar fat removal and other facial contouring techniques could be good alternatives or supplemental procedures to enhance the facial features of a patient.
Therefore, I recommend that you seek consultation with an experienced surgeon who will provide you with the best solution preserving your natural appearance.
Thank you for your question.
Best of wishes to you.
