- Buccal fat removal takes out the fat in the middle of the cheeks with a small incision inside the mouth.
- It is a standard procedure with good results although it takes at least 6 months to see the final result.
- Lower face liposuction removes fat in the lower face - it can leave dents, irregularities and nerve damage and is not a standard cosmetic treatment although some surgeons will do it.
