Do you regret having your buccal fat removal?

Tags:woman age 25-34 cheeks cheeks too fat hollow cheeks

I've read a bunch of buccal fat removal reviews and I have to say, it's an intriguing subject. I have chubby cheeks and I'd like to have a rounder feminine look. I don't think that I'll regret the surgery because I've always hated the shape of my face, and I've wanted a more contoured look for years. Worst case scenario, my cheeks will be a bit more hollow than I expected, but I don't mind it that much. What do you think?

There is a promising new device for facial contouring and decreasing unwanted fatty facial areas.  The Agnes handheld radiofrequency is being used to decrease full lower cheeks or hamster cheeks, decrease jowls and improve the jawline. The Agnes is an outpatient procedure done under local anesthesia.  Patients report minimal discomfort after the numbing and there is around 4 days of mild swelling and bruising.
