Buccal Fat Removal for Men in Chicago

What Is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal is a minimally invasive procedure that decreases fullness in the lower cheek area of the face. It includes removing buccal fat, or fat pads, from the cheeks to reveal a slimmer and more contoured appearance. For men, the goal is to enhance the definition of the jawline and chin by permanently eliminating excess buccal fat in the lower areas of the face that are normally hollow. Men who are unhappy with their inherited “baby face” or “chipmunk cheeks” can have their appearance improved at Male Plastic Surgery in Chicago.

Male Buccal Fat Removal Before and AfterHow Is Buccal Fat Removal Performed?

The buccal fat removal procedure is performed through a small incision on the inner portion of the cheek and takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Your surgeon will first administer a local anesthetic to the area and a minor incision will be made inside the mouth to remove the buccal fat pad. Once it’s removed, dissolvable sutures will be used to close the incision. In some cases, men who are undergoing other cosmetic facial procedures such as a facelift may have buccal fat removed at the same time.

Male Buccal Fat Removal Before and AfterWho Is a Good Candidate For Buccal Fat Removal?

Men in the Chicago area who are interested in the buccal fat removal procedure should be non-smokers. Patients should be in good overall health and present excessive fullness in the lower cheek area. Buccal fat removal is not recommended to male patients who have a thin or narrow face. This can lead to a gaunt appearance. The ideal candidate has naturally chubby cheeks that have not responded to proper diet and exercise.

Male Buccal Fat Removal Before and AfterRecovery Time

Since buccal fat removal is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, the recovery is relatively quick. Immediately following surgery and up to a week after, patients can expect swelling and the cheek area might seem more round than before. This will subside and the full results of the procedure will be noticeable three months post-op. Patients can resume their regular daily activities and diet one day after surgery. Antibiotics and a prescribed mouthwash will be given to prevent infection. Your surgeon may also suggest pain medication to alleviate any discomfort.
