Dear RealSelfs, I've had my buccal fat pad removed today morning. It took less than 1 hour, and it might be done even quicker, if I wasn't a special case (as usual). My surgeon started with my left side and couldn't find the fat pad anywhere in my middle cheek area, so he went little higher,... READ MORE
