I have chubby cheeks, could buccal pad removal correct this?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 20 June 2012


I am writing today to ask you about buccal pad removal.

I have chubby cheeks, especially around the mouth area and was wondering if this procedure could correct this?

My uncle and father are in thier late 40's and they still have chipmunk cheeks too, so I guess it's my genetics.


The main types of surgical interventions that contribute to sculpting the lower part of the face are buccal fat reduction and liposuction.

They address different layers of fatty tissue in the lower part of the face.

The decision regarding the best treatment or combination of treatments is based on the characteristics of your face, and can be refined using 3-D imaging and computer simulation. This can give you an appreciation of what each individual treatment can contribute, and whether a combination of interventions is necessary to optimise the result.
