Buccal fat pad removal is a procedure to help reshape and rejuvenate the face to restore more youthful contours. The goal of this surgery is to softly create transitions between the face’s sub-units. These are the lower face, the mid-face and the upper face. This usually requires refining the look of the buccal fat pads to ensure a soft transition. Cheek reduction can help you improve the way your cheeks appear and balance the overall shape of your face. If your cheeks are chubby, round or too full, buccal fat pad removal will provide a more symmetrical and sculpted appearance.
The procedure takes place in your mouth so there are no visible scars left on your face. The right amount of the pad is removed to enhance the shape of your face and your contours. This procedure is important in the creation of the most attractive facial appearance possible. This surgery provides numerous benefits including:
• More definition in the cheeks
• A rejuvenated facial shape
• An improvement in facial contours
• An increase in self-confidence
• An enhanced facial appearance
The first step is consulting with a qualified surgeon to discuss your goals. This will enable your surgeon to determine the best plan for achieving your desired results for facial rejuvenation.
The Best Candidates for Buccal Fat Pad Removal
The best possible candidate for buccal fat pad removal are:
- Individuals with puffy or chubby cheeks
- Individuals interested in an overall facial rejuvenation
- Prominent and high cheekbones with sunken cheeks beneath the cheekbones
Most people need a recovery period of three to five days. The final results from the buccal fat pad removal appear four to six weeks later as the swelling goes down. In most cases, the cheeks have a much slimmer appearance. The majority of people are happy with the results from the surgery although the effect is more dramatic in some people than others. This procedure is considered to be conservative, effective and safe.
The surgery is often performed using an outpatient surgical facility. Most people are able to go home during the same day they had the surgery to begin the process of recovery. The length of time required for the surgery is influenced by any other procedures being done at the same time. This can significantly increase the length of time needed to complete the surgery. The final result provides a beautifully sculpted and natural appearance and no visible scarring.
