Also known as cheek reduction surgery, buccal fat removal surgery is the procedure performed to remove the buccal fat pad from the lower cheek to accentuate the facial features. This surgery helps to make the cheekbone more defined and give a chiseled look. Cheek reduction is a very common procedure and can be performed on both males and females as required.
There is a grape-sized buccal fat-pad tissue present on each side of the face that gives the puffiness to the cheeks. The size of this fat pad is different in each patient. In some people, the size is small enough not to affect the facial symmetry. But in others, the fat pad is big which makes the cheeks look puffier. This fat pad is removed to make the face more balanced and symmetrical. If you wish to undergo buccal fat removal surgery, consult a plastic surgeon and find out if you are the right candidate.
