Who needs Cheek Reduction surgery?

However full round cheeks seem cute and beautiful, excessively puffy cheeks are completely different. This shape of chubby cheeks are beautiful and satisfying in childhood but as you grow up it may not make that good feeling. Even though it’s currently desirable to have highly defined cheeks, overly prominent cheeks can create a masculine, harsh look to the face. A balanced proportion of nose, cheek and chin creates a much more subtle look. If you are not satisfied with your cheek appearance, one good option is buccal fat extraction.
The buccal fat pad is a rounded mass of fat in the middle of your cheek. It’s located between facial muscles, in the hollow area beneath your cheekbone. The size of your buccal fat pads affects your face shape.
Everyone has buccal fat pads. However, the size of buccal fat pads can vary greatly.
If you have larger buccal fat pads, you might feel like your face is too round or full. You may also feel like you have a “baby face.”
There’s nothing wrong with having bigger cheeks. But if you’d like to make them smaller, a plastic surgeon might recommend buccal fat removal. This surgery is done to reduce the width of round faces.
If you’re interested in buccal fat removal, read on to learn about the procedure and the potential complications.
