In people who have a “round” face or are overweight, surgery to remove the cheek fat pads inside the cheeks is a great way to get rid of these unwanted facial fats. Buccal liposuction is the best way to get rid of these excess fats. . It is a relatively quick and simple plastic surgery that is performed under local anesthesia and does not leave an external scar.
Classically, in more attractive faces, the face looks almost like a heart or an inverted triangle, with the cheeks being the largest part and then tapering down to the jawbone. When someone has an excessive buccal fat pad, this may create an inverted triangle where the patient is wider along the lower part of their face versus the upper part of their face.
This surgery is performed by making a small incision inside the mouth on the inner side of the cheeks and removing the buccal fat tissue. The stitches used for suturing are usually absorbed and eventually come off on their own. And you can go home the same day from surgery.
Buccal fat is a fat mass that is located in the hollow area between the buccianator muscle and other superficial muscles of the face. The size of the Bichat fat pad varies from person to person, and the buccal fat in both species may have different sizes.
Tips about buccal fat:
