Chubby lower cheeks, commonly known as “chipmunk cheeks”, very often contribute to overly rounded cheeks, thus masking the contours of a beautiful upper cheekbone and lower jawbone. Chubby lower cheeks can make a person look chubby even though they may have a thin body
Very often, chubby lower cheeks cannot not be reduced in the size of their by simply losing weight with diet and or exercise.
Buccal fat removal is a plastic surgery procedure that removes the excess fat of the lower cheeks that contributes to a chubby lower cheek appearance, thus giving the face a slimmer more sculpted/chiseled contour, and revealing the natural cheekbones.
Buccal fat removal is an ideal procedure for patients with round, chubby lower cheeks that would like a more defined, slimmer or non-chubby facial appearance.
