Why do you need buccal fat reduction?

Face shape is an 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 face form.

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 form. 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.

What are the benefits of the procedure?

patient safety for buccal fat removalThe buccal fat reduction eliminates the cheek fullness arising from excessive fat on both sides. And provides:

  • More balanced face form
  • Improved facial expression
  • More defined cheek contour
  • Younger and slim look
  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Increased self-confidence

What will I aim in the surgery?

My objective is to make you happy as achieving more harmonic face form. So, getting rid of excessive fat re-contours your cheeks and provides you a slimmer look.

Cheek fat removal seems relatively simple procedure as comparing the other cosmetic surgeries. However, it never and should not be underestimated.

Some patients seek a solution as they experienced a failed buccal fat reduction surgery before. Cheek asymmetries due to unequal removal of fat and inadequate reduction are the most common complaints of the patients consulting me. Sometimes, their corrective surgery challenges even more than to do the primary surgery. The goal is to achieve the best outcome in a single shot.

How will your face look after cheek fat reduction?

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.

Where will I perform your surgery?

Joint Commission International (JCI) works to improve patient safety and quality of health care in the international community by offering education, publications, advisory services, and international accreditation and certification. It is the recognized global leader in healthcare accreditation with the highest standards built on maximum safety and minimum risk.

There are a couple of hospital options that I affiliated with, which accredited by JCI. I will perform your surgery at either one of the distinguished, cutting edge hospitals in Dubai. You may opt for one during the consultation.

How will I perform the surgery?

surgical incision

1 cm surgical incision inside the mouth which is enough to remove buccal fat.

For buccal fat removal procedure, local anesthesia alone or combined with sedation provides sufficient numbness.

I incise 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.

How is the recovery period after cheek fat removal?

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.

When can you see the result after cheek fat reduction?

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. Namely, after one week, you will look as if you have not had surgery at all.

The space that the fat had removed starts to shrink, and the inner surface of surrounding tissue adheres to each other. This process progresses very slow and takes about 2-4 months. For this reason, I want to inform you in advance that you will not see the 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.

Liposuction or buccal fat reduction, what is the difference?

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 form. 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.



As per Dubai Health Authority rules, if you had planned to have a buccal fat removal in Dubai, you had to do a COVID test before the buccal fat removal in Dubai hospitals. However, according to the recent update, patients no longer have to do a covid test.
