Buccal Fat Removal Procedure

A buccal fat removal surgery in Dubai is performed on an outpatient basis. The procedure is completed in an hour. You will be awake during the procedure but will not feel any pain due to local anesthesia or sedation. An incision will be created between the cheeks and gums. A buccal or Bichat fat pad will protrude through the incision because of external pressure. This fat pad will be removed using surgical instruments. After eliminating the fat, your surgeon will close the incisions using stitches.

Buccal Fat Removal Recovery

You will experience discomfort and pain after the surgery but it will be controlled with pain medications. Also, you are likely to experience swelling and bruising after the surgery which may take several weeks in subsiding completely. Generally, you will be able to return to work within a week after the surgery.

  • Take a soft diet and fluids mostly because of oral incisions in the cheek area.
  • Avoid strenuous tasks for a week or two.
