What Is
buccal fat removal?

The fat pad in the hollow of the cheeks is called the Buccal Fat Pad in medical terminology. The Buccal Fat Removal surgery is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery that removes the naturally occurring buccal fat pads and contours the shape to be more in line with the inverted triangle of beauty. 

Dr Santosh Bhatia explains that Buccal Fat Removal surgery makes the cheekbones more prominent and gives the patient’s face a more sculpted and angular look. At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic this surgery is performed in a safe and effective manner.

ideal candidate for a buccal fat removal?

It is important to note here that the surgery is gender-neutral and can be performed on both male and female patients. Apart from this, Dr Santosh Bhatia advises patients to have realistic expectations from the surgery.
