Buccal fat pads are present in everyone.
The buccal fat pad removal procedure
Dr. Hyman has established a boutique practice in NYC where you will be under the care of an exceptionally accomplished plastic surgeon who focuses on delivering the highest level of personalized attention, patient safety, and elegant results. The procedure involves numbing the cheeks with a local anesthetic, making an incision within the mouth, carefully removing the fat pad, and then closing the incision with dissolvable sutures.
In some cases, it may be more beneficial to reposition the fat pad to restore volume to thinning facial areas. Alternatively, it may be appropriate to reduce the size of the pad rather than remove it entirely.
