Patients with fullness of the anterior lower cheeks are usually candidates for buccal fat removal. This procedure helps to achieve a less round but more chiseled face. This procedure is usually performed in my office under local anesthesia.
When evaluating a patient for possible buccal fat removal, it is important to evaluate the cheek bones. If the cheek bones are weak, they need to be enhanced ( ideally with fillers) to help to balance the face and achieve a chiseled and less rounded face once with the buccal fat removal plastic surgery.
Patients interested in buccal fat pad removal should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in plastic surgery procedures of the face
