Buccal Fat Removal in Weston, FL

The face is the central aspect of a person’s appearance. Everyone’s face has buccal fat pads in their cheeks. However, the size of these pads varies significantly between individuals. For some, the buccal fat pads are large, creating a round, full face. Buccal fat removal, or cheek reduction surgery, surgically removes the buccal fat pads in the cheeks to create a thinner and more defined facial structure.
