A buccal fat removal surgery requires an incision on the inside of the mouth on the inner portion of your cheek. Occasionally, the buccal fat pad may be removed during a facelift and not necessitate an incision inside the mouth.

Sutures close the incisions inside your mouth. Typically, these sutures are absorbable, but each plastic surgeon performs the surgery differently. Be sure to avoid playing with the sutures with your tongue until cleared by the surgeon.

Following buccal fat removal surgery, you may be instructed to stay on a liquid diet for several days or longer. Our surgeon may instruct you on special mouth rinses to reduce the risk of infection. Healing will continue for several weeks as swelling decreases. Continue to follow our surgeon's instructions and attend follow-up visits as scheduled.

The results of buccal fat removal surgery may be initially obscured by swelling. It may take several months for you to see the final results, as your cheeks gradually contour to their new appearance. The cheeks should appear less full or chubby in postop results.

Although good results are expected, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.
