The appearance gives a more defined cheekbone structure compared to a rounder face.
Ellen Gendler, a New York dermatologist, cautioned about the procedure: “When you remove an underlying structure in a permanent procedure and age around it, you don’t know what it’s going to look like.”
Darren Smith, a New York-based plastic surgeon, told CNN: “The big danger of buccal fat pad excision is premature aging of the face.
