I mean apparently that's a thing in bimax, to remove 4 bicuspids to keep the bite even in the back. Though I presume you're referring to straight up bicuspid removal for standalone orthodontic purposes. There's a big EU doc that augments the cheeks with buccal fat pad... I'm not convinced that produces reliably good results, just based off what I know from here.

Is his name Dr. Viksraitis  from Lithuania?  If so, he doesn't remove it. He displaces it to a higher place where it looks better.

Thanx.  Ramirez published about that technique YEARS back. The doc in Lithuania learned it from Ramirez which is why I thought you could have been referring to the Lithuanian doc when you mentioned a doc in Europe doing the technique.

I mean ... treating a (probable) boney deficiency with buccal fat pad... I don't see why docs would choose this method over the more pervasive fat transfer.
