Buccal fat is the technical term for the fat pad that lies between the cheek’s hollow area. While it is a natural occurrence that gives the cheeks their fullness, too much of it can make them appear too full. This is due to the fact that each person’s buccal fat pad is different in size. This, in turn, detracts from a person’s appearance. It’s easy to mix up an excessive buccal fat pad with the well-known condition of “baby fat,” but they’re not the same thing. As a result, the procedure of buccal fat removal necessitates consultation with a qualified surgeon.
Excess buccal fat pad has been observed to be inherited from one’s parents on occasion. It gives the appearance of fuller cheeks in the middle of the face (also known as “chipmunk cheeks”). While the procedure for removing buccal fat is delicate but straightforward, the assessment is crucial. Dr. Adarsh would also consider the procedure’s feasibility and required extent, keeping in mind that the removal of the buccal fat pad should not cause a person’s cheeks to appear hollow in the future.
The majority of people with an excessively round face can benefit from this procedure, which helps them achieve a more defined appearance.
The buccal fat pad, a naturally occurring pad of fat in the cheek hollow area, is removed during a buccal fat removal. Each patient’s buccal fat pad is different in size, and the buccal fat pad in each cheek may be different sizes. Buccal fat pad extraction surgery is usually avoided in people with thin, narrow faces because removing the fat can make the face appear gaunt as they get older.
