I was wondering if I was a good candidate for buccal fat removal for my face? (Photos)

I was wondering if I was a good candidate for buccal fat removal for my face. I feel like my face got super swollen after having two kids. At first I though it was my nose but now I'm not so sure if I need anything else.

Buccal fat removal?

Thank you for asking about your buccal fat removal.
  • Excellent question -
  • With your face at rest, your mid-cheek seems a little full.
  • Buccal fat removal will reduce the fullness -
  • It is a procedure that can be done in the office with local anesthesia.
  • If you gained weight after your children, this could have led to increased fat deposits in the buccal fat.
  • Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
