The buccal fat pads are cheek fat pads that are overdeveloped in some patients, giving the “chubby cheek” look, also called the “chipmunk look,” neither of which are considered appealing (fox, yes, chipmunk, no). By trimming this fat from the inside of the mouth, the chubbiness is reduced. This surgery may be done at the same time as jawline augmentation and a submental lipectomy to reduce the negative synergy of a full cheek and a weak jawline. The “Calvin Klein model look” is characterized by a relatively shallow cheek and prominent jawline. Plastic surgeons speak of a youthful “ogee,” which is an S-curve, bulging out at the cheekbone, concave at the lower cheek and then out again over the jawline.
