    What is Bichectomy?

    Buccal fat removal is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves the removal of fat pads in the cheeks, known as buccal fat pads. These pads of fat are located in the lower part of the cheeks, just beneath the cheekbones, and can create a rounded, chubby facial appearance.

While weight loss may lead to a reduction in overall body fat, it is not possible to target the reduction of buccal fat specifically through natural means.
