Does buccal fat removal affect the appearance of aging?

Buccal fat removal - will it age me?
- Asians age well compared to Caucasians because they tend to have thicker skin which gives better protection from the sun.
- However removing buccal fat can lead to poor aging - unless there is too much fat.
- The best way to decide for yourself is to look at your relatives -
- If they are 55 or older, do they still have chubby cheeks the way you do? Would they look better to you if their cheeks were slimmer? If so - you will probably do fine with buccal fat removal.
