Buccal Fat Removal Candidates have full cheeks
Buccal fat removal
I think one of the best ways to determine if you are a good candidate is to suck in your cheeks in the mirror and see if you like the affect. This simulates pretty well the affect of buccal fat excision. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia or sedation, and the recovery is minimal. Most patients can return to all basic activities the next day and most swelling resolves in 2-3 weeks.

- Patents with fullness of the lower anterior cheeks could benefit from buccal fat removal since the procedure targets the fat pocket in that area
- Patients with fulness of the lower posterior cheeks could benefit from masetter muscle treatment with Botox ( Botox makes that masticatory muscle to "shrink", therefore decreasing its bulkiness)
