Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal Fat Removal Technique

The Buccal fat is removed from an incision within the mouth on either side. The fat is then exposed and removed. The wound is then closed. The amount of fat removed is variable. IT is important to remember that as we age the buccal fat reduces. Therefore removal of too much fat at the time of surgery can result in a hollow look later in age.

Candidates For Buccal Fat Removal

Fat accumulated deep beneath the skin can be quite stubborn to get rid of and can lead to a more rounded facial profile. Buccal Fat Removal is appropriate for those who have a round face or puffy cheeks and desire a slimmer facial profile. The treatment is also extremely useful for people who have lost a lot of weight and have yet to see the results of their hard work on their faces.

Preparing for Buccal Fat Removal

Before undergoing a buccal fat removal procedure, there are a few pre-operative instructions that you must adhere to in order to limit the possibilities of risks and to experience the best results possible. These instructions will require you to stop smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking certain medications for a couple of weeks before the procedure.
