Can buccal fat removal be done more than once? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 2
Buccal fat pad removal can only be done once
Your photos demonstrate a depression of the cheeks consistent with prior buccal fat pad removal. Any residual excess fat elsewhere in the cheeks is best addressed by weight loss or facial liposuction.

Buccal fat pad could help to achieve a more sculpted chiseled face in patients with certain facial features. However, many factors, including amount of overall fat in the body affects the appearance of the face. If the amount of total body fat is elevated, the cheeks, specially the upper cheeks will look chubby even if buccal fat has been removed. Therefore, lowering the total body fat may improve the chubby cheeks not caused by buccal fat.
