Buccal Fat Removal Procedure

Our buccal fat removal surgery, also known as buccal lipectomy, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves removing excess fat from the cheeks. The surgery can be done with IV sedation, under local anesthesia, or in combination with other procedures and lasts approximately 30 minutes. During the process, an incision is made inside the mouth near each cheekbone. Special instruments are used to remove fatty tissue without damaging any underlying structures such as muscles or nerves.

Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, the incisions are sutured for recovery and healing. The procedure creates a slimmer facial appearance in patients who feel that their cheeks are disproportionate to their face, and helps create a contoured look.

Frequently Asked Questions

Recovery time after this minimally invasive procedure is very short, and generally free of pain. You will spend about an hour after surgery in our recovery center if you have IV sedation but can then go back to the comfort of your own home. You can eat and drink normally starting that same day!

Full results can vary depending on the individual but typically takes one to two weeks before swelling has fully subsided. During this time, it’s important to rest adequately and follow your post-operative instructions given to you by our experts for optimal healing results.

Yes, buccal fat removal results are permanent. The procedure involves removing excess buccal fat pads from the cheeks, which can help to create a more sleek and defined jawline and reduce the appearance of jowls.

Generally the fullness that causes jowls is a result of tissue sagging lower in the face which can be treated with neck liposuction or a mini facelift. However, depending on your face, buccal lipectomy and its slimming effect on your face may help reduce the appearance of jowling.

Long-term side effects associated with having buccal lipectomy are rare. Our doctors will follow you long term to make sure that you continue to enjoy your amazing results.
