Buccal Fat Removal

This is a simple day care surgery where cheek buccal fat pads are surgically removed. An example of cosmetic plastic surgery is the removal of buccal fat. It is often referred to as a cheek reduction procedure or buccal lipectomy. Cheeks are made thinner, and face angles are defined. This procedure barely takes 30 minutes to perform.

Buccal Fat Removal

A circular mass of fat in the centre of your cheek is called the buccal fat pad. It is situated between the muscles of the face, in the hollow just below the cheekbone. Your face shape is influenced by the size of your buccal fat pads. Everybody has buccal fat pads. However, there is a wide range in the size of buccal fat pads. You might think your face is excessively full or round if you have enlarged buccal fat pads. You might also think of yourself as having a "baby face." Having larger cheeks is not a problem. However, if you want to reduce their size, Dr. Viral Desai, one of the best cosmetic plastic surgeons in Mumbai advise buccal fat reduction. This procedure is used to narrow circular faces.

Who’s a good candidate for buccal fat removal?

You might be a good candidate for buccal fat removal if any of the following applies to you:

  • You’re in good physical health.
  • You’re at a healthy weight.
  • You have a round, fuller face.
  • You dislike the fullness of your cheeks.
  • You have pseudogenization (small rounded fat mass in the cheek due to a weak buccal fat pad).
  • You desire a more defined chiselled face

Buccal fat removal isn’t for everyone. It may not be recommended in the following scenarios:

  • Your face is narrow.
  • You have progressive hemifacial atrophy (Parry-Romberg syndrome).
  • You’re older

How much does it cost?

The price of removing buccal fat varies depending on the number of treatments you’re experiencing. The expense of combining cheek reduction surgery with additional operations will go up, especially if you're also having facial plastic surgery that calls for general anaesthesia.

What are the risks associated with buccal fat removal surgery?

They are very rare with this surgery (less than 0.5 percent). Possible risks are-

  • Infection at the incision site.
  • Injury to facial nerves and/or salivary duct injury.
  • Numbness or sensation changes.
  • Asymmetry

What is the recovery time for buccal fat removal surgery?

Dr Viral will provide you with recommendations on how to speed up healing after your treatment. It's crucial to adhere to his after-care recommendations, which may include scheduling any follow-up consultations. Although the recovery period following this treatment is typically 3-7 days, the final result is seen after few weeks.

When do you see results after buccal fat removal?
Once the majority of the swelling has subsided, you'll start to see majority benefits in approximately three weeks. As your skin settles into your cheek hollows, it may take three or even six weeks before you notice your complete effects.

For best results, schedule an appointment at CPLSS one of the best cosmetic surgery and hair transplant clinics in Mumbai with our expert surgeon Dr Viral Desai.
