Can Buccal Fat Return after removal
Buccal Fat Return?
Buccal Fat is different than other fat in that it is an encapsulated portion of fat. In buccal fat removal, the fat is removed from the area. If all of the fat has been removed, then buccal fat can not be return. If a small portion persists, that area can potentially grow with fatty weight gain. In addition, fat is located throughout the face and can enlarge with fatty weight gain.
