Buccal fat is a technical name for the fat pad that is found between the hollow area of the cheek. While it is a natural phenomenon and gives the cheek the shape of fullness, excess of it can make the cheeks look too full. It is because the size of the buccal fat pad is different with every person. That in turn interferes with the appearance of a person. It is easy to confuse the excessive buccal fat pad with the commonly known case of baby fatbut they are not the same. Hence, the procedure of buccal fat removal requires assessment by an expert surgeon.

Buccal fat pad in excess is also observed to be inherited from ones parents at times. It practically makes the middle of the face look fuller (sometimes also commonly known as chipmunk cheeks). While the procedure of buccal fat removal is delicate but simple, it is the assessment that is critical in nature. Dr. Parag would also consider the feasibility of the procedure and its required extent keeping mind that in future, the removal of the buccal fat pad should not make a persons cheeks look hollow.

This procedure is applicable in a majority of people who have an excessively round face and helps them achieve the sharpness in their appearance.
