Deep within the cheeks is a sizable accumulation of fat - named for Dr. Bichat. Its reduction gives definition to facial features and emphasizes existing cheekbones often obscured by excessive "baby fat" or "chubby" cheeks. Tiny incisions in the cheek opposite the second molar allow removal of this fat. It is important to be conservative in this removal in order to prevent deeply hollowed cheeks later in life.
Our plastic surgery clinic is located in Panama City and Destin, on Northwest Florida's Emerald Coast.
