I have had a fat graft in the cheeks, the surgeon overfilled the area extremely, and too low in the face. Any suggestions?

Too much fat grafted to cheeks
Do not despair - this problem can be fixed, but it will likely require some type of surgery to remove the fat - either liposuction or direct removal via an incision. I would visit with a Board Certified plastic surgeon to see what your options are and which would be best for you.
FAT transfer to the face - complications
Fat transfer in the cheeks doesn't last symmetrically!
We need to make a facial analysis with palpation to notice the right position of the fat lumps and decide the treatment, subcision, aspiration, compression, and rarely incisions.
But after a reshaping in needed with the SVF in deep layers.
Fat graft removal
This is becoming a common problem.
The first attempt should be with micro-liposuction. Sometimes the fat graft is fibrosed and can not be liposuctioned. Then the only alternative is to approach it through a facelift incision and remove and sculpt the face.
