Buccal Fat Pad Removal

There is a natural fat pad overlying the lateral teeth in the cheek. In most people, this simply provides a natural roundness to the cheek. It blends with the surrounding fat and cannot usually be distinguished from it. However, in some people, with absorption of the surrounding fat or thinning of the nearby fat from a conventional facelift, the Buccal Fat Pad becomes prominent. This produces a bulge on the cheek. Fortunately, this is easily corrected. The fat pad can be removed, or, frequently better, repositioned to provide bulk in the upper cheek, where it is needed.
