Patients may have poorly defined bone structure due to the excess facial fat. By performing buccal fat (cheek) reduction, the cheeks are allowed to be more prominent. The buccal fat is located in the mid-face, between the lips and cheek bone. Small incisions inside the mouth are used to remove some of the extra cheek fat. Maryland and northern Virginia patients may appreciate the results after a couple weeks, once swelling resolves.
