What are safe alternatives to buccal fat removal = basically none #buccalfatremoval
Chubby cheeks are caused by enlarged buccal fat pads. Buccal fat removal is the safest procedure to remove buccal fat. Other procedures that could remove fat like liposuction or direct transcutaneous (through the skin) fat excision are less safer alternatives to buccal fat removal since they can damage the nerves that controls the movement of the face (facial nerve)
