Am I A Good Candidate For Buccal Fat Removal? (photos)

I'm 20 year's old. 115 pounds. While it's not a big issue and I find myself beautiful regardless, I do desire a slimmer face (& a slimmer,pointier nose). Always have since I was a little girl. Contouring is always an option, but i'm not a big fan of wearing loads of makeup everyday. I've read about the negative effects of buccal fat removal in a bad candidate so I just want to know if I'd qualify...
