Frequently Asked Questions About:
Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal fat removal surgery enhances facial structure by reducing the buccal fat pads in the lower cheeks, resulting in more defined cheekbones and a sculpted facial contour. Also known as buccal lipectomy or bichectomy, this minimally invasive surgery is ideal for adults seeking to eliminate a round and chubby “baby face” appearance. While the buccal fat pad naturally thins with age, it is resistant to diet and exercise. Therefore, this outpatient procedure has gained popularity as a means to achieve desired facial contours.

If you are looking to achieve a slimmer face and reduce the size of your cheeks, you may be a suitable candidate for a buccal fat removal procedure. Furthermore, if you have previously undergone fat dissolving injections in your cheek area but were dissatisfied with the results, buccal fat removal presents a compelling and effective solution.

Discover the advantages of buccal fat removal:

1. Achieve a sleeker face and more pronounced cheekbones.

2. No visible scars due to incisions made inside the mouth.

3. Permanent results, even with weight gain.

4. Quick procedure, typically under an hour.

5. Minimal downtime, with most patients resuming normal activities after three days.

6. Safer than liposuction for cheek fat reduction, avoiding potential facial nerve damage.

Potential drawbacks you should be aware of:

1. Swelling during healing may last a couple of weeks, similar to “chipmunk cheeks” after dental work.

2. The possibility of lower cheeks appearing hollow over time, although lacking conclusive data.

3. Overly gaunt appearance if too much fat is removed or weight loss occurs post-procedure.

4. Potential for asymmetry, requiring revision at additional expense.

To avoid additional risks such as salivary duct damage, hemorrhaging, and nerve damage, it is crucial to find a skilled plastic surgeon who has a comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy. At ImagineHealth, we will connect you with an experienced doctor to ensure a safe and successful outcome.

Buccal fat pad removal can reduce the appearance of jowling in suitable patients. Removing excess buccal cheek fat can uplift the skin slightly. However, this treatment is only effective for specific individuals. It is important to note that pre-existing sagging may become more noticeable after fat removal. If you are worried about your skin’s elasticity to recover (typically a concern for patients aged 40 and above), consult your doctor about skin tightening options.

With the use of local anesthesia, you will not experience any pain during the procedure. A mild discomfort can be managed easily during recovery with ice and over-the-counter pain medication. If pain is a significant concern, discuss with your doctor whether prescription medication is necessary for the initial recovery period.

Recovery time for buccal fat removal usually takes three to four days, but a week is recommended for optimal results. Expect initial discomfort and swelling, which should decrease within three weeks. To reduce swelling, follow these tips:

– Stick to a soft-food diet and avoid hot or spicy foods for 24 hours to avoid irritating the incisions.

– Regularly apply ice to the affected area.

– Wear a chin strap at night for the first two weeks.

– Sleep on your back with your head elevated for at least the first week.

Noticeable results can be expected within three weeks. However, it may take up to six months to fully appreciate the transformation as your skin adjusts to the new cheek hollows.

Buccal fat pad removal offers permanent results. The fat that is extracted will not regenerate, even with weight gain. However, it is important to note that an increase in weight may cause the remaining fat cells in other areas to expand, potentially affecting the appearance of your face. To preserve the benefits of your fat removal, it is recommended to maintain a healthy weight.

Buccal fat is a unique type of fat in the body that cannot be restored to its original state once manipulated. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your buccal fat removal, consult with your surgeon to explore potential solutions. Consider dermal fillers like collagen-building injectables for temporary relief from gauntness. Facial fat transfer is also a potential choice, but it requires a skilled surgeon with extensive experience due to its challenging grafting process.
