Buccal fat is a fat pocket in the lower anterior face that is "resistant" to decrease in size due to diet or exercise in most of the cases.

Chewing gum will NOT make the buccal fat to reduce the size of thebuccal fat. If that would be true, nobody would do buccal fat removal plastic surgery but shew gum. However, chewing gum, by making the scheming muscle of the gum ( the masseter muscle) bigger (hypertrophy) will make the posterior lower face to become wider, thus making the lower face fullness worst.
