The buccal fat pad is a deep pocket of fat situated below the malar eminence (cheek) and behind the buccinator muscle.Excess buccal fat pads often give rise to the appearance of overly full and rounded cheek. The appearance of such facial features is sometimes referred to as “chip monk cheeks”, “chubby cheeks” or “baby face cheeks”. The size of buccal fat pad varies with each individual patient, and the buccal fat pad in each cheek may be different in sizes and volumes. These conditions are often hereditary in nature and cannot be readily reduced by exercise or diet. These excess buccal fat pads can only be removed by surgery.
