Buccal Fat Extraction

2min Read

Buccal fat removal surgery or extracting fat from the cheek is the extraction of the fat layer in the lower part of the cheek in order to beautify and reduce the puffiness of the face. These fatty layers are located on both sides of the face and start from the forehead and reach the cheek. The layers are among the muscles that humans use to chew food.

There are several references for the performance of these lipid layers; one of these theories is that these layers help chew and protect some facial muscles. However, the extraction of these layers does not affect the function of the face or cheek and affects only the appearance of the face.

Puffing the cheek due to these fatty layers does not relate to the weight and diet of the individuals and is rooted in their genetics. By buccal fat removal surgery, the cheek will be more beautiful and the face will be better.
