What is buccal fat removal?

Changed Shape, Changed Life

Buccal Fat Removal is a procedure that can slim, define and contour the cheeks to give you a sharper jawline. Dr. Sayal performs cheek slimming using an advanced technique that reduces excess fat without affecting facial muscle or natural tissue, resulting in younger-looking cheeks without any tell-tale signs of surgical intervention. The end result is a slimmer, more youthful appearance on your face while maintaining all of its natural characteristics.

What are the benefits of buccal fat removal?

Buccal fat pads are one of those invisible problems that can make you feel self-conscious and insecure about how you look. But the surgical reduction of these buccal fat pads can provide a slimming effect that adds improved contour to the lower third of your face, making it appear younger and thinner. If this concerns you, Dr. Ricky Sayal at The Center for Facial Plastic Surgery can determine whether or not Buccal Fat Removal in Detroit may be for you.

Am I a good candidate for buccal fat removal?

Put Your Best Face Forward

You may be a good candidate for this operation if you have unwanted fat in your cheek area. A professional evaluation can help you establish if this is the case. While body fat fluctuates throughout life, some patients' buccal fat pads are more prominent than normal and will remain that way regardless of weight. With Buccal Fat Removal Detroit patients get one of the most successful surgical techniques to get a smaller, more defined face. Exercise alone will not solve this problem.

Your Buccal Fat Removal Procedure

A Firmer Jawline

The first step in Buccal Fat Reduction is to cleanse and anesthetize. From there, a small incision will be made in your mouth, and excess fat is removed from both sides. Buccal fat pads are composed of subcutaneous fat as well as what's known as buccinator muscle (which is part of your facial muscles). Dr. Sayal has seen positive results from trimming both types for patients looking to improve their profile.

Buccal Fat Removal Recovery

Rediscover Your Self-Confidence

Following a Buccal Fat Removal, or buccal lipectomy, patients may develop facial swelling. However, the puffiness will go away in two to three weeks. When the swelling subsides, the cheeks will appear slimmer and more sculpted. The tissues inside the mouth usually heal in seven to ten days after the buccal fat pad is removed. As a result, a patient may need to follow a soft or semi-liquid diet for the first several days following surgery. After a buccal lipectomy, a specific mouth rinse is occasionally recommended. The rinse can help lower the risk of infection in patients and should be used as indicated.

Buccal Fat Removal Results

Lose the Baby Face

After most of the swelling has subsided, you should see your first results in around three weeks. However, once your skin settles into your cheek hollows, it might take up to three or even six months to see your full benefits. The excision of the buccal fat pad is permanent. Even if you gain weight, the buccal fat pads will not regenerate. Weight increase, on the other hand, might make your face appear plumper when the residual fat cells in different locations expand. This can conceal your outcomes, so maintaining a healthy weight is still a smart idea.
