Patients that would like a more contoured/defined/sculpted and chiseled look could undergo a plastic surgery procedure called buccal fat pad removal.
Buccal fat pad removal consist in the removal of the fat of the lower cheeks that gives the face a round or cubby face. The procedure is performed through small incisions inside the mouth (with no visible external scars). Removal of the buccal fat pat allows the cheek bones to be revealed giving a more "sculpted" look or chiseled appearance. This is a procedure commonly done by professional models. Buccal fat pad removal can be done wide awake under pure local anesthesia with minimal discomfort or pain in patient candidates.
