What is Buccal Fat Removal?
Also referred to as buccal lipectomy or cheek reduction surgery, Buccal Fat Removal is a surgical procedure where the buccal fat pads in your cheeks are removed. This process gives your cheeks a thinner look and your facial angles more definition.
Who are the Best Candidates for Buccal Fat Removal?
Mr. Inglefield believes the best candidates typically possess a round, fuller face, dislike the fullness of their cheeks, are looking for facial feminization surgery, or have pseudoherniation, which is a small rounded fat mass in their cheek due to a weak buccal fat pad.
As with any physical alteration surgery, the best candidates are those who are in good physical health, maintains realistic expectations, and are a non-smoker.
*We do not recommend this procedure for those who have a narrow face or sunken cheeks or have progressive hemifacial atrophy (a rare disorder that causes the skin on one side of your face to shrink). We also do not recommend this for older patients as it may emphasize your jowls or other signs of facial aging.
What are the Benefits of Buccal Fat Removal?
Some of the benefits we have noticed from Buccal Fat Removal are that it can help reduce your facial fullness, enhances the natural contours of your face, and helps you achieve your desired physical appearance.
What’s the First Step?
The first step to getting Buccal Fat Removal in London is to book a consultation. During your one-on-one appointment with our award-winning surgeon—Mr. Christopher Inglefield, we’ll be able to answer questions and provide our expert recommendations. If you and your surgeon both feel that this is the best solution for your facial needs, we’ll book your surgery and provide you with pre and post-operative instructions.
What to Expect on the day of Buccal Fat Removal?
On the day of your Buccal Fat Removal, Mr. Inglefield will administer some local anesthesia to your face. Although you will be awake during the procedure, the anesthesia will diminish any pain you might feel. An incision will be made inside your cheek, then the pressure will be applied to the outside of your cheek to further expose the buccal fat pad. Mr. Inglefield will then cut and remove the excess fat, then finish the surgery by closing the wound with dissolvable stitches. Before you leave, you will be given a special mouthwash to prevent any infections, as well as additional information on how to care for the incision.
Buccal Fat Removal Recovery
During the initial stage of your recovery, you will need to maintain a liquid diet for the first several days, after which you will be able to progress to soft foods before returning to your normal diet.
You will experience some mild bruising and swelling in your face, but this will subside over time. On average, our patients see a full recovery after about three weeks. There will be a few follow-up appointments so Dr. Inglefield can monitor your progress and offer any additional suggestions for your healing process and eating.
