Buccal Fat Removal in Dubai

Buccal fats are the fatty deposits found in the lower cheek area which make puffiness in the cheeks and hide the contours of the cheekbones and jawline. Buccal fat removal, also known as cheek reduction surgery, is a surgical procedure in which the buccal fat is removed to improve the contours of the cheeks.

Your initial consultation

Your initial appointment with your plastic surgeon has two purposes. First, you will have the chance to learn everything there is to know about the treatment, including how computer-generated imaging might be used to predict the potential outcomes of your procedure. Meanwhile, your surgeon will assess whether your facial anatomy is suitable for this procedure.

The question you may ask your surgeon:

  • What is Bichectomy?
  • Is Buccal Fat Removal a safe procedure for every age group?
  • What are its long-term side effects?
  • Will I undergo local or general anesthesia?
  • How long will the results remain permanent?

Buccal Fat Removal Procedure

The question “How is buccal fat removal surgery done’ usually comes into the mind of patients who are undergoing this surgery. 

The surgeon gives local anesthesia so that you do not feel any pain. To minimize visible scarring, the surgeon makes small incisions inside the mouth, near the gums of the cheek.

After that, the excess fatty deposits are delicately removed through the incision. The buccal fat within the cheeks is carefully separated and removed, distinct from other facial tissues. The incisions are then sutured, and because they are inside the mouth, resulting scars are typically not visible externally. There is no need to worry about visible scarring; it will fade over time.

Buccal Fat Removal Recovery

You may experience discomfort and pain after the surgery, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications. You are likely to experience swelling and bruising after the surgery, which generally subsides over several weeks, but the exact duration can vary by individual. Generally, patients may return to work within a week after the surgery, but recovery time can vary.

Post-op Care

You will be given a few instructions to follow after the surgery for successful results. Some of the common instructions include;

  • Adhere to a soft diet and fluids primarily due to the oral incisions in the cheek area to facilitate healing and minimize discomfort.
  • Avoid strenuous activities for at least a week or two, or as advised by your surgeon.
  • Maintain oral hygiene to avoid infections.

While the results are generally permanent, changes in weight or facial structure can affect the outcome. However, it’s important to understand that results can vary significantly from one individual to another based on various factors.
