Buccal fat removal in NYC is a procedure that can help you achieve both more youthful and slimmer cheeks. The cheek contains a special pocket of fat referred to as buccal fat. If there is too much buccal fat, it results in a cheeky appearance referred to as the chipmunk look. The buccal fat is located on both sides of the face between the facial muscles. It is not difficult to separate this fat from the structures of the face. This makes buccal fat an excellent target to decrease or remove the fullness in the lower face. The fat pad in the cheeks is distinctive and often used to define and enhance the appearance of the individual. It is important to note that the majority of people who have had this procedure have been very satisfied with their results.
Excess buccal fat removal is a common procedure in NYC for faces with a chubby appearance. A lot of people are unhappy with this look. The issue is the buccal fat generally resists both exercise and diet. The result is often a slender body with a full face. Buccal fat removal in NYC is an effective and simple way to eliminate or reduce the fullness in the lower face to achieve a more slender contour. The shape of the face is transformed from a boxy or square look to an attractive and chiseled heart or V shape. This will change the entire look of the face and provide a more attractive appearance. This often results in an increase in confidence for the individual.
The good news is this procedure does not leave any scars, is easy, and is fast. Plus, the amount of downtime is extremely limited. The individual can resume their regular routine and daily activities within just days. It is important to understand that the change in the facial shape is subtle enough for most people not to notice. In most cases, the individual who had the procedure will be asked if they have lost weight, changed their hairstyle or had some type of cosmetic procedure. Despite the reactions of others, the change is obvious to the person who had the procedure done.
The Buccal Fat Removal Procedure in NYC
The procedure is both quick and simple requiring local anesthetic and sedation to ensure the comfort of the patient while the procedure is being performed. The surgical approach and type of anesthesia may be based on the preference of the patient and any additional procedures being performed during the same period of time. In most cases, the procedure is fast and is extremely straightforward. Buccal fat reduction can be combined with a fairly wide variety of other procedures or performed separately. The options for the additional procedures are generally discussed with the individual during the initial consultation. Any questions the person has regarding the procedure, preparations, potential results and recovery period should be discussed at this time.
The buccal fat removal procedure in NYC begins once the area has been numbed with local anesthetic and sedation. The surgeon then makes a little incision inside the mouth to locate and remove the buccal pad of fat. Once the fat pad has been located, it easily pops out from within the incision because the connection to the surrounding structures is minimal. The buccal fat removal does not interfere with the additional structures of the face. The surgeon is extremely careful to make certain the ideal amount of fat has been removed. This provides the patient with a svelte and more refined appearance. It is important to remove the right amount of fat or the face can be left with a hollow look. Once the buccal fat has been removed, dissolvable sutures can be used to close the incision.
The surgeon places her focus on the natural aesthetic and artistic aspects of the face. The importance of ensuring the patient is comfortable and well-cared for is also a priority. This helps ensure the individual achieves their desired results. The preparation process is very important as well. Advanced computer imaging may be used to make certain the person will be happy with the procedure and achieve the outcome they expect. A lot of cosmetic surgeons show the individuals before and after pictures of their patients to ensure they know what to expect. It is important to make certain the surgeon is both experienced and familiar with the procedure used for buccal fat removal. This greatly increases the chances of the person obtaining the look they want.
The Advantages of the Procedure
This procedure was created for individuals who have already lost the desired amount of weight in their bodies, but have been unable to lose the excess facial fat through both exercise and diet. The idea is to provide a slimmer facial appearance and more pleasing contours by removing the pads of buccal fat. This procedure is especially popular with people in NYC who have lost a lot of weight but have not seen any changes in their faces. The deposits of buccal fat are located deep beneath the skin. These deposits are usually stubborn and can be nearly impossible to lose naturally. Many individuals lack both confidence and self-esteem due to the chubby look caused by the excess buccal fat. As you can imagine, the leaner appearance provided by the procedure usually increases both.
The recovery period for a buccal fat removal procedure in NYC is not known to be difficult or lengthy. The impact on daily life is minimal. The improvement in the contour of the cheeks is apparent soon after the procedure is completed. As you heal, there is a continued improvement in the cheek contours for multiple weeks. The activity and dietary restrictions only last for days. At this point, the patient can resume their standard routine.
