What is a Buccal Fat Pad Removal?
Buccal fat extraction, buccal fat excision, buccal fat removal involves carefully removing defined amounts of fat tissues from the buccal fat pads in the cheeks.

How long does the procedure take?
The procedure lasts one to two hours depending on the extent of the enhancements. You may experience slight swelling immediately after the procedure and for at least three days.
How does the procedure work?
Local Anaesthesia will be administered. Your surgeon will make an incision about two to four centimetres long between the cheek and gums inside the mouth. The incision starts above the second upper molar towards the back of the mouth. The surgeon uses blunt dissection to expose the fascia and fibres of the buccinator muscle. Your surgeon will then use the pressure of his or thumb externally against your cheek right under your cheek bone causing the buckle fat to protrude through the incision. He or she will then “tease” the fat out with forceps a little bit at a time. Non-dissolvable sutures close the incisions. There may be slight differences in surgical technique depending upon the preference of your surgeon.
Is there downtime?
Most patients recover fully within three weeks, however, recovery rates vary and are influenced by your general health, nutrition and the extent of the procedure.
