What Is Buccal Fat Removal?

One of the reasons why cheek fat can be hard to lose is because of the buccal fat pad. This is a pocket of fat that naturally exists in the cheeks. Some people will have smaller pads due to genetics, while others may have larger ones that result in a rounded face regardless of how much you diet or exercise. Buccal fat removal is a quick procedure that removes this pad, providing a contoured result for a more dynamic appearance and expression.
