Can You Brush Your Teeth After Buccal Fat Removal?Yes, though you should be careful. Brush your teeth gently and be careful to avoid the incision areas. Also, do not rinse your mouth with anything, including water or mouthwash until okayed.
When Can I Eat Solid Foods Again?Usually, patients can resume their normal diet within a week. However, some patients may not have to stick solely to a liquid or soft diet. You should avoid nuts, popcorn, seeds, and other similar foods that are hard to chew or small enough to get stuck in the incisions. Dr. Jonov will provide more personalized diet instructions after your consultation and surgery.
When Can I Rinse My Mouth?Dr. Jonov may recommend gentle salt rinses one to two days after surgery. This can keep the mouth clean and relieve discomfort. Patients typically perform these rinses one to three times a day based on their instructions. To schedule a consultation, please call us at 425-775-3561.
