What is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal, also known as cheek reduction or bichectomy, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at refining facial contours by reducing the prominence of the buccal fat pads located in the lower cheeks. These fat pads contribute to the fullness of the lower cheeks and can create a rounder or less defined appearance. Through this procedure, excess buccal fat is strategically removed to create a slimmer, more sculpted facial aesthetic. Often sought after by individuals who desire a more contoured look, buccal fat removal offers the potential for a chiseled appearance, emphasizing cheekbone definition and enhancing overall facial symmetry.

The Benefits of Buccal Fat Removal

This procedure offers a range of advantages that can help you achieve your desired aesthetic goals:

Enhanced Facial Contours

Buccal fat removal can sculpt the cheeks, creating a more defined and contoured appearance that complements your overall facial structure.

Slimmer Cheek Appearance

Accentuated Cheekbones

The removal of excess buccal fat can bring attention to your cheekbones, emphasizing their natural beauty and enhancing facial symmetry.

This procedure can provide a more youthful appearance by addressing the fullness associated with rounder cheeks, creating a balanced and harmonious facial profile.

Long-Lasting Results

The results of buccal fat removal are typically permanent, offering lasting benefits that achieve a refined, elegant appearance for many years to come.

Furthermore, buccal fat removal is a minimally invasive procedure that only takes about an hour to complete.

The Buccal Fat Removal Process: What to Expect

The process begins with an initial consultation where you'll discuss your goals, concerns, and desired outcomes. Dr. Sunder will perform a thorough facial assessment to determine the appropriate treatment plan that aligns with your individual facial anatomy and aspirations.

On the day of the procedure, our experienced team will guide you through the pre-operative preparation.

 The procedure itself is typically performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation, ensuring your comfort throughout. Dr. Sunder will create precise incisions within the mouth, avoiding any visible external scars. Through these incisions, she will gently remove the targeted buccal fat pads to achieve the desired facial contour.

The entire buccal fat removal procedure usually takes about an hour, and you can often return home on the same day with minimal downtime. Our team will provide you with thorough post-operative care instructions, including pain management, hygiene, and dietary guidelines. Dr. Sunder and her team will be available to address any questions or concerns you may have during your recovery period.

Buccal Fat Removal Recovery

Following your buccal fat removal procedure, you can anticipate a straightforward recovery process that leads to beautifully refined facial contours. Here's what you can expect:

  • You will experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort immediately after the procedure. This is a natural response – swelling and bruising will peak in the first 48 hours and then gradually start to diminish.
  • As the healing process progresses, your results will continue to improve over the next several weeks.
  • Around the three-month mark, you will experience the final outcome of your buccal fat removal, showcasing beautifully sculpted cheeks and a refined facial profile.

Initially, you will be instructed to follow a soft diet to ensure optimal healing. Avoid strenuous activities for a couple of weeks to prevent additional swelling or complications. As your face settles into its new contours, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, skincare routine, and sun protection will contribute to the longevity of your results. Regular follow-up appointments can be scheduled to monitor your progress and address any questions or concerns.
