Buccal fat pad removal is one way of obtaining a more contoured, slimmer facial appearance. However, you need to be seen by a plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and the procedures required to achieve these. While fat removal is one way of contouring the face, there are also other techniques affecting structures such as the bone, muscle, fascia and skin.
Other techniques include:
- Fat grafting,
- Surgical procedures with or without the use of implants.
Hope this helps!
