Buccal fat extraction is removal of fat from the cheeks. This procedure can help you if you want to get rid of "chipmunk cheeks" or be less baby-faced. It's most appropriate for fatty cheeks that are caused by genetics, not excess fat caused by being overweight or obese. If your doctor believes you're at a healthy weight but you still have excess fat in the cheeks, a buccal fat extraction might be right for you. Remember that cheeks often become thinner as you age, so take genetics into account when making your decision. It's advisable to wait until your mid-20's to have the surgery to avoid a gaunt look later on.
A cheek reduction is one of the less-expensive cosmetic surgeries, but you can get it for even less by travelling abroad. The operation only takes about an hour to complete, and is not very invasive as far as plastic surgery goes. After you receive local and general anesthesia, your surgeon will make a small incision on the inside of your mouth and remove excess fat through there. This simple operation can make a big difference in your appearance if that's what you're after.
After surgery, you will likely be groggy and under-the-weather due to anesthesia and medications. You will have to sleep on two or more pillows for the next two weeks, to keep your head elevated. To avoid infection, you may be advised to avoid raw or rare-cooked animal flesh or foods with high bacterial levels. You may also be advised to use an antiseptic mouthwash. Your face may look swollen for a couple of days after surgery, but this will quickly subside. And, unlike facial liposuction, buccal fat extraction doesn't leave any visible scars or incisions. Full recovery can be expected after three weeks, although contact sports should be avoided for a full two months.

Make sure the surgeon who performed your surgery does the final check before you go home and not other members of the clinic staff.
