Malar fat pad?
Doctor Answers 2
Buccal fat removal - will malar tissues descend early?
- If you had excess buccal fat and the fat in the central cheek was removed, it should not affect your malar tissues.
- However if extensive fat was removed- as some surgeons do - it can thin the whole face and decrease tissuen support.
- If this were the case, I would expect you to see the effects now.
- If your apple cheeks haven't changed so far, and surgery was 6 months ago or more, chances are you will be fine.
I had chubby lower cheeks but I don't want my apple cheeks to go down. = it depends of your cheek bone structure #chubbycheeks
