What Is Buccal Fat Removal?

A buccal fat removal is a face procedure that is intended for the removal of fat in the cheeks. This procedure slightly thins out the face to define a person’s features more. Careful not to overdo it, having this done can make your cheekbones stand out and get rid of unnecessary fat in the cheek area.

Good Candidates For Buccal Fat Removal

People with naturally plump and full faces would benefit from this procedure. If an individual has a face that is too thin already, the procedure might not enhance them. Speaking with Dr. Altamira before the fat removal will determine if you are a good candidate or not.
