Recovering From Buccal Fat Removal Surgery

By | Buccal Fat Removal, Face | No Comments
Buccal fat removal surgery, also known as a cheek reduction, slims the face by removing fat from the cheeks. This plastic surgery procedure involves incisions inside the mouth and typically involves a short recovery period. What can you expect from a buccal fat removal recovery in Bellevue? Immediately following surgery, you may experience swelling and discomfort. Dr. Jonov will prescribe pain medications and antibiotics to manage pain and discourage infection. Since the incisions are located inside the mouth, you will need to adhere to a liquid and soft diet for at least a few days. This for your own comfort and to keep the incisions clear from debris. Swelling, especially in the face, can take weeks or months to totally subside. Since cheek reduction patients range in age and demographic, every patient will experience their buccal fat removal recovery differently. In general, swelling can be hidden with makeup after the first one or two weeks. You can prevent excessive swelling by avoiding painkillers like Ibuprofen and following Dr. Jonov’s instructions closely. Like before your surgery, you may need to continue avoiding certain medications. Additionally, strenuous activities will need to be limited or avoided for at least two weeks. Dr. Jonov will give clearance for returning to work and other activities. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

Rejuvenating the Tone, Texture, and Beauty of Your Skin with Microneedling

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
Microneedling is a unique non-surgical skin-rejuvenation treatment that takes advantage of the skin’s natural healing process to deliver noticeable aesthetic improvements. It helps to improve the tone, texture, and appearance of your skin and is perfect for addressing acne, scars, age lines, and other aesthetic skin issues. The treatment uses a special device that is equipped with a cluster of oscillating needles. The device is carefully passed over the skin, where it creates multiple tiny wounds on the skin’s surface. These tiny wounds stimulate the production of collagen and elastin within the skin, two proteins that are essential for tight, strong, and healthy skin. The collagen and elastin produced by the treatment repair the skin and help to thicken the dermis, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Microneedling can be performed on any area of the body and is safe and effective on all skin types, even sensitive skin. If microneedling sounds like the ideal procedure for restoring the smooth and radiant appearance of your skin, contact the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery to schedule a consultation.
