What happens in the buccal fat removal procedure?
There are small pads of fat that are present underneath the cheekbones. These pockets of fat vary in size and volume for people.

The procedure takes about an hour and is done by putting the client under a general anesthetic or local anesthesia with IV sedation. Then a tiny incision is created on the inside of the cheek. Then gentle pressure is applied to the outside of the cheek, making the buccal fat visible and protruding through the opening. The surgeon then removes the amount of fat needed. The same procedure is carried out on the other side of the face. Incisions are stitched together by using dissolvable sutures.
Who is an ideal candidate for the procedure?
