Buccal fat removal is also known as cheek fat removal or buccal lipectomy. It is the extraction of part of the buccal fat pads in the cheeks. Removal of the excess fat creates a more contoured and defined facial appearance.

What is Buccal Fat Removal, and how does it work?

Buccal fat removal is a cheek reduction surgery that can not only improve the look of the cheeks, but it can also provide a more refined, tapered facial structure. Full, round, or large chubby cheeks can create a look that you may not appreciate. By removing the fat pads, a slimmer, more structured facial appearance can be created. The procedure does not involve visible scarring, the incisions are placed within your mouth. Dr. Sajan will carefully remove excess buccal fat to enhance your facial shape, creating a beautifully contoured new look.

Recovery After Buccal Fat Removal

The length of your recovery can vary depending on the details of your specific surgery. You can expect to feel a bit sore, and you will experience some facial swelling following your buccal fat removal surgery. Any swelling should be resolved within two to three weeks, and your rejuvenated facial features will become more prominent. For most patients, the tissue inside of the mouth will take approximately a week to ten days to heal. You will need to plan on maintaining a soft or semi-liquid diet during that time. You can return to work and normal activities in two to three days.

FAQ: Buccal Fat Removal

When can I expect to see my results?

You can expect to see your results gradually as your body begins to heal. Once the swelling has subsided completely and you have fully recovered, you will be able to see your new look. This will occur between one to three months after surgery.

Will my cheeks get puffy again?

The fat removed will not return, but it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle as weight fluctuations can impact your rejuvenated appearance.

Is there an age restriction for buccal fat removal?

Buccal fat removal can be performed at any age. Most patients are in their 20s and 30s when considering this type of surgery. Excess fat should not be removed if you are in your teens as if performed too early, natural fat loss in later years may leave you looking gaunt.
