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.

2020 Cosmetic Surgery Trends: Buccal Fat Removal And The Ideal Candidates

By | Buccal Fat Removal, Face | No Comments

Buccal fat removal is on the path to become one of the hottest and fastest growing cosmetic surgeries in 2020. The procedure–which requires a talented and experienced cosmetic surgeon–removes the buccal fat pads located in the cheeks. This usually results in a natural slimming of the face and can provide added definition to the cheekbones. 

While many people find themselves dissatisfied with the amount of fat in their cheeks, when the procedure is performed on an unideal candidate, it can quicken the aging process and result in unwanted gauntness in the area earlier in life. Anyone thinking about buccal fat pad removal should use careful consideration and consult with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon.

Buccal fat removal candidates should be at least 25 and at a healthy body weight. Weight gain, hormonal factors, and age can all contribute to the amount of fat present in your cheeks. Some people, however, are genetically predisposed to carry excess fat in their cheeks. In which case, weight loss, lifestyle changes, and other medical interventions will not result in a reduction of cheek fat. These are usually the best candidates for buccal fat removal.
