Can I Have Buccal Fat Removal?
You are likely a great candidate for facial fat removal if you:
- Are in good health
- Would like to slim down your cheeks
- Have genetically large cheeks
- Have lost weight but still have a plump mid-face
- Have asymmetry in your cheeks from a congenital defect, a medical condition, or a past trauma
How Does Buccal Fat Removal Work?
Your buccal fat removal surgery will be performed as an outpatient surgery using anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on your needs. This surgery typically lasts around one hour. Plastic surgeon Dr. Sawan will begin by making incisions in your mouth in the lower section of your cheeks. From there, he'll remove the buccal fat pads from each side, giving you the look you desire. The incisions will be closed, and you'll be ready for recovery. Once you're ready for discharge, you'll be sent home with a friend or family member with detailed healing and care instructions.
What is the Buccal Fat Removal Recovery?
At-home recovery should be fairly simple following your buccal fat pad removal. You'll likely need a soft food diet in order to allow proper healing of your incisions. There will be some swelling in your mid-face, but that should decrease each day, and in a few short weeks, you'll be able to see your results. If you get a fever, bleeding from the surgical sites, or signs of infection, you should call Dr. Sawan. Otherwise, we'll see you at your scheduled follow-up appointment to check on your healing process and ensure you're pleased with your results.
