How to tell if you need buccal fat pad removal in the cheek area?
Fat reduction in the cheek area may be right for you if you have a round face shape due to large cheek pads. This is determined by an experienced facial surgeon - sometimes the cheeks have a convex appearance due to regular fat pads or overdeveloped jaw muscles. In addition, surgical removal of cheek fat may be necessary if you have had a mandibuloplasty (a reduction of the chin or jaw) and your cheeks look too puffy as a result. Last but not least, suitable candidates should have good general health and a stable weight - planned future weight loss may affect the outcome of buccal lipectomy.
How is cheek fat removal performed?
The bichectomy, which can also be called cheek fat removal, is an aesthetic procedure in which fat pads on the cheeks are removed in order to emphasize the facial contours. As a result of bichectomy, the chin and cheekbones are highlighted and the facial contours become more pronounced. The disproportioned appearance of facial contours is eliminated by bichectomy, with the goal of obtaining a facial shape with the appearance of an inverted triangle between the cheekbones and the chin, also known as the triangle of youth. With the bichectomy surgery, we tighten the facial lines in order to achieve the golden ratio. In this way, the patient obtains a more aesthetic, attractive and youthful appearance.
What can you expect after cheek fat pad removal?
In cheek fat removal surgery (buccal fat pads), the main goal is to make the cheeks thinner by removing the cheek fat pads and highlighting the cheekbones to give the face an inverted triangle. This makes the cheeks narrower and defines the angles of the face.
How is the recovery after cheek fat removal?
After cheek fat removal, hospitalization is not required. After a short rest, the patient can be discharged. According to the surgery, antibiotics may be recommended to prevent the incision in the mouth from becoming infected. To ensure a good healing process after a bitectomy, it is also important to maintain good oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth and gargling regularly will help speed healing. After the surgery, you should not eat hard foods for a period of time recommended by your doctor. Incisions in the oral cavity will heal within a week, but it is normal to have swelling for another 2 to 3 weeks. Applying cold compresses is helpful to keep swelling to a minimum. During the healing process, do not smoke or drink alcohol.
Is it possible to combine buccal lipectomy with a facelift or other procedures?
The buccal lipectomy is often performed in combination with other facial surgical procedures since the combination of two techniques can help achieve the desired more natural and youthful appearance of the face. As a result, cheek fat removal may be performed in conjunction with the following procedures:

1- Incisions are covered with wound dressings, and drainage tubes may be placed in the wounds.
2- Drains prevent serious fluids from accumulating under the skin and prevent the formation of seromas.
3- The sutures usually dissolve after about a week and do not need to be removed.
4- Compression garments will be placed on you from then on to hold the tissue in place and help your body heal, and It is recommended that you wear the compression garment 22-23 hours per day for 6-8 weeks.
5- During the first week, swelling, pain, and discomfort are common. Contact the clinic immediately if the pain is unusually severe and prolonged. To reduce swelling, eat a low-sodium diet and eat plenty of high-fiber foods.
6- Swellings and discomfort usually subside within about 2 weeks. It is recommended that patients take at least a few weeks off from work to rest and aid in healing. The final result can be seen after the residual swelling subsides, which usually takes about 4-6 months.
7- Patient should avoid direct sun exposure, as this can cause skin irritation and possible skin discoloration in the long run.
