Is the Cheek Pad the Same As the Buccal Fat Pad? (photo)
is the cheek pad and the buccal fat pad the same thing? I had an substandard face-lift 15 months ago. It wrecked my eyes. One doctor wanted to lift my cheek pads along with another procedure, to give my eyes more support. My new doctor, considering a revision of my inadequate face-lift, spoke of removing the buccal fat pads. My face is round and I have puffy cheeks. I'm 60 years old. What do you suggest? I like my new doctor, but not sure about the buccal fat pad removal.
