Buccal Fat Removal

Timeless Elegance

Buccal Fat Removal

People who are overweight may accumulate excess facial fat, which affects the appearance of the face greatly, which in turn causes inconvenience to many people, especially when this fat forms an inconsistent face and changes the personal features significantly.

It is the fat that accumulates between the cheekbones and the jawbone in the face, where it forms what looks like a large fat pad compared to the rest of the facial features, as these procedures work to get rid of this fat and restore facial sculpting to obtain a face in a consistent manner and the person is satisfied with himself.

The most suitable people for Buccal Fat Removal

At Excellage Clinic, we may recommend some people more than others for facial fat removal, as they are considered the best people for this procedure, which helps them choose the appropriate surgical option for them, including:

  • People who want to get rid of excess fullness in the face
  • It is important that people are in good health, that their weight is stable and that there is no extreme increase or decrease
  • To be middle-aged, as fat declines with age.

Facial fat removal (cheeks)

It is sometimes called cheek reduction, as we are working at the Excellage Clinic to perform surgery on the area between the cheeks and the jaw line, which in turn helps to highlight the facial bones again in a way that gives the face its basic features, the required nature and sculpting.


What type of anesthesia is used during Buccal Fat Removal?

The process of removing facial fat is one of the relatively simple operations compared to other operations, and it is performed under the influence of local anesthesia, as it can be performed within the clinic and return to the vein on the same day, and the surgeon may request that general anesthesia be done, especially if there are any additional procedures that the surgeon may add.

How is Buccal Fat Removal performed?

Surgeons at the Excellage Clinic make incisions inside the mouth on both sides of the face to reveal areas that form cheek fat, then start cutting and removing fatty accumulations, after which the previous wounds are sutured inside the mouth, and this means that there are no visible wounds that can form surgical scars.

What are the most important recommendations after doing the surgery?

Doctors at the Excellage Clinic recommend a number of recommendations that are indicated for any surgical procedure, and since the surgical incisions are inside the mouth, the doctor may request a special mouthwash for a number of the following days to avoid infection, and he also recommends eating a liquid diet for a day or two after surgery, to avoid friction with the incisions

What are the postoperative side effects of facial fat removal?

Some swelling, bruising, and numbness can occur at the site of the facial incisions immediately after surgery or for a number of days, which often disappear over time. However, some of the potential risks of this operation lie in:

  • Infection at the incision site.
  • Injury to the facial nerves and/or injury to the salivary duct.
  • Changes in sensation or numbness.
  • Asymmetry parts of the cheeks.

The recovery takes approximately 3 weeks, and the final result takes several months to appear in its final form.
