Face shape is important unit in terms of facial impression. If your face shape is round, even if you gain a little weight, you look chubby and maybe older than your actual age.
Fulness on the face shows up especially on the cheeks. While normal quantity of fat leads you to look younger, cheek fullness leads “moon face” appearance.
Cheek reduction is common procedure and provides you a younger and slimmer appearance.
If you plan to have buccal fat removal in Dubai, here, you will find out all the information you need.
All babies’ cheek look puffy. It is a genetic characteristics of human nature. As the overall body grows in years, cheek fat does not grow parallel to body growth. In childhood, cheek fat growth slows down and in adolescence, face gains almost normal appearance. However, cheek fat growth continues longer in some people and leads a chubby face.
If your face looks chubby and puffy and you wish to look finer, buccal fat removal is the best option for you.
The buccal fat reduction eliminates the cheek fullness arising from excessive fat on both sides. And provides:
You can directly see prior the procedure how your face will look after buccal fat removal. Here is the tip for you… Stand in front of the mirror. Slightly bite your inner wall of your cheeks with your upper and lower teeth. Then you can see the result. What you see is almost same as the result of buccal fat reduction surgery.
For buccal fat removal procedure, local anesthesia alone or combined with sedation provides sufficient numbness.
I cut 1 cm mucosa inside the mouth. Capsule of the fat pad shows itself directly. Then I divide the fat from the surrounding tissue.
At this stage, it is crucial to cauterize the connections of the fat via laser or radiofrequency device. Thus, the fat becomes disconnected. Then I take it out.
I double check to be sure if there is any active bleeding inside. After final bleeding control, I stitch the wound.
Each cheek fat removal takes 15-20 minutes.
Buccal fat reduction or repositioning can also be carried out as a part of facelift surgery.
You may leave the hospital following 1-2 hours rest after procedure. Even the next day you can resume your normal life.
Since there is wound inside your mouth you need soft foods for 3-4 days. After each feeding you should wash your mouth with antiseptic solution for 4-5 days.
I use absorbable stitches to close the wound. The stitches would dissolve in 7-10 days. So, no need to remove the stitches.
Just after buccal fat removal, little blood oozing from the surrounding tissue fill the space where the fat removed. Plus surrounding soft tissue swelling occurs as well. Hence, your cheeks look slightly swollen than they look before.
Resolving of the soft tissue swelling and accumulated blood resorption take 3-5 days. From that moment your cheeks look same as before. The space that the fat removed start to shrink and inner surface of surrounding tissue adheres each other. This process takes about 2-4 months. So, I want to inform you in advance that you will not see immediate result just after buccal fat removal.
As this process go on, new shape of your cheeks starts to emerge gradually. Briefly you will see the actual result 2-4 months after procedure.
Face contains two layers of fat tissue. Superficial layer lies just underneath the skin and distributed to entire face with variable thickness. Whereas the deep layer, namely the buccal fat pad has a particular location on the inner aspect of the cheek wall. It lies underneath the muscle layer at the deepest position.
Therefore fullness of each layer shows up different effect upon the face appearance. Hence buccal fat removal and liposuction procedure provide different effect. Both procedure has no superiority upon each other.
Liposuction thins the fat layer from below the eyes to the neck where the fat layer is thick. Whereas buccal fat removal reduces local fullness of the cheek.
I elaborately examine your face fullness which layer arising from. Then I choose which procedure is proper for you according to also how you would like your face look. Combination of both procedures is also feasible.
There is no large series of buccal fat reduction patient studies stating the rates of each complication in the medical literature. However, the overall complication rate of buccal fat removal is 8,5% includes bleeding and infection. That does not mean you will experience those complications.
Bleeding is avoidable complication, delicate bleeding control during the surgery prevents the bleeding risk.
Antibiotic medication and washing the mouth with antiseptic solution after feeding for 4-5 days minimize infection risk.
On the other hand, since the buccal fat pad has close relation with salivary duct, buccal nerve and major facial vessel, there are many pitfalls of the surgery. That is why some surgeons who are lack of confidence avoid performing this procedure and try to discourage you.
IMPORTANT ! Before getting the appointment, check your medical conditions yourself.
