Buccal Pad Removal surgery Recovery

Dr. Rubinstein provides each patient with detailed buccal lipectomy aftercare instructions. The majority of patients do not need pain medication during the recovery process. Some patients resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure, but most choose to relax after the operation and resume their activities the following day.

No visible wounds or scars occur during the healing process because the incisions are made inside the cheeks. The surgeon’s aftercare instructions may include:

  • Tending to the incision site
  • Avoiding high-impact sports
  • Applying medication or using mouthwash to help with healing and prevent infection
  • Returning for a follow-up visit

Some swelling should be expected, along with minor bruising that is often undetectable. Dietary adjustments such as a liquid or soft diet are needed for the first few days, but most patients resume a regular diet after ten days.

The full benefits of the surgery, including a more refined and chiseled look, the removal of chipmunk or chubby cheeks, and a more balanced appearance, are fully visible in 4 to 6 weeks.

Risks of Buccal Fat Removal

As with any surgical procedure, buccal fat removal has risks that patients should be aware of. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in facial plastic surgery can help minimize these risks. One potential risk is the possibility of excess skin or sagging in the cheeks following the procedure. This can occur if too much fat is removed, leading to an uneven or unnatural appearance. It is important for patients to have realistic expectations and trust their surgeon’s expertise to ensure a balanced and harmonious outcome.

In addition, like all cosmetic surgery procedures, there is always a small risk of complications such as infection, bleeding, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. Patients must be well-informed about these potential risks and make an informed decision after discussing them with their surgeon. However, the vast majority of patients who undergo buccal fat removal are satisfied with their results and experience improved facial appearance and self-confidence. By choosing a skilled surgeon and following post-operative instructions carefully, patients can minimize these risks and achieve beautiful outcomes from this minor surgical procedure.
