Is there any limit (maximum amount) regarding, how much fat can be removed at a time during a buccal fat removal surgery? Or does the amount of fat (to be removed) depends on the individual's desire and conditions? Thanks in advance.

Buccal fat - how much to remove?
- Buccal fat usually comes encapsulated and all the encapsulated fat is removed.
- It should correspond in place and size to the cheek bulge that it aims to correct.
- Since fat is found throughout the face, sdditional fat can be removed but risks giving a haggard look to the face.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
