Buccal Fat Removal

Can Buccal Fat Grow Back?

By October 20, 2023 No Comments
Buccal fat pads lie in the middle region of the cheek and provide a natural contour to the facial structure. However, some are genetically inclined to excess buccal fat, creating a rounder face with little contour. Buccal fat removal is a cosmetic surgery that eliminates excess buccal fat and can provide a stunning facial profile. However, those considering the procedure often wonder if buccal fat can grow back.  Fat cells eliminated from a target area cannot grow back, meaning buccal fat removal is often a permanent solution to excess buccal fat. However, weight fluctuation and gain can cause fat to expand, which can cause existing fat cells to grow and fill out the face. Although, if this occurs, it is unlikely to be as significant as before the surgery. Buccal fat pads do not grow back, so it’s essential to ensure that your face is done thinning out before undergoing the procedure.
