Should I consider Buccal Fat Removal? it depends on what exactly you are looking for #buccalfat #buccalfatremoval
Buccal fat removal is a plastic surgery procedure than improve the lower anterior cheek fullness associated with "chubby face look". Removal of the buccal fat allows to achieve a more chiseled look.
Droopiness of skin in the lower face next to the corners of the mouth is usually not secondary to buccal fat BUT lack of anterior and lateral cheek bone projection. Although buccal fat could improve "slightly" this finding, cheek augmentation with either soft tississue fillers like Voluma or Cheek implants will improve this finding since it corrects the cause.
