Why young people could regret buccal fat removal

The trending plastic surgery could have downsides for young patients in the future. Dr. Ira Savetsky says the cheekbone-emphasizing procedure is relatively easy. Though she adds, “If you’re someone who has chubby cheeks, that’s a good patient because you’re removing excess and leaving them with a relatively normal amount of buccal fat. But if you perform the procedure on someone who doesn’t have excess buccal fat or if you remove too much, while it may look good in your twenties and thirties, as you age and as you lose more fat in your face you’re going to look overly hollow as you get older.” {The Daily Beast}
