Buccal fat removal?

Buccal fat removal? = pictures needed to determine the problem #fb #cheeks #buccalfatpad #drmesa #doctormesa
Cheek fullness could be addressed with buccal fat pad removal. When the "cheek fullness" is associated with the upper face ( prominent or wide cheek bones) this type of surgery may not be the solution.
Patients with upper cheek fullness require a physical exam to determine the cause of the cheek fulness and potential treatment options.
Patients interested in cheek fullness management should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in procedure of the face

Excess fat high on cheek
From your description alone, it sounds as though you do not have excess buccal fat but may have excess fullness of the malar fat pad.
An examination would be needed to be sure - and to discuss any treatment option.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
