Know the pros and cons of your procedure and do your research. Although Buccal Fat removal isn't popularly advised by surgeons--I decided to go with it since all of my elder aunts had saggy pocket cheeks despite being slim.
I've always wanted a procedure done that would remove the fat, but I wanted to wait until I was older to see if it would dissipate on its own. When it didn't, I researched doctors in L.A. who were certified and who could do the procedure under local since I react terribly under GA (unearthed this mystery from my wisdom teeth removal). I'm a month post-op and couldn't be happier.
Very knowledgeable--when you hear his explanations (in technical terms or layman) you can really tell that this is his passion. No question is too silly to ask, and he appreciates a well-informed patient. His staff is amazing--the nurse offered me Red Velvet cupcakes and everyone's just very accommodating and welcoming. I did it under local--and while that's pretty freaky, I felt safe and knew exactly what was going on.
