This procedure removes the buccal fat pad, which is a naturally-occurring pad of fat in the cheek hollow area. The size depends on each individual, and the buccal fat pad in each cheek may have different sizes. Buccal fat extraction surgery will not be performed in people with thin and bony faces as the fat removal may cause the face to look older.
