The Quest for Defined Facial Contours is Over

Facial fullness can be a desirable trait, yet some individuals have an excess of it, particularly in the lower cheeks and jaw areas. This fullness can obscure the underlying bone structure and lead to a less defined or rounded facial appearance. Buccal fat pad removal is designed to address this concern by reducing the volume in the cheeks and unveiling your natural, sculpted face, highlighting your bone structure.

What Can Buccal Fat Pad Removal Achieve?

Buccal fat pad removal offers numerous advantages for individuals seeking more sculpted facial contours:

Balanced Proportions

Achieving the right balance between facial features is essential for a harmonious look. Buccal fat pad removal helps ensure your facial proportions are in harmony.

Enhanced Facial Definition

By reducing fullness in the lower cheeks, this procedure creates a more pronounced jawline, leading to improved overall facial definition.

Striking Appearance

Excessive fullness in the cheeks can make the face appear rounder and, in some cases, heavier. This surgery can rejuvenate your facial appearance and give you a more sculpted look.

Minimal Scarring

The incisions for buccal fat pad removal are placed inside the mouth, so there are no external scars.

More Than a Trend: A Lasting Sculpted Look

The buccal fat pad removal procedure is a highly customizable one, tailored to the unique needs and goals of each patient. Here's an overview of the process:

  1. Consultation: It all starts with your consultation with Dr. Tripathi. During this meeting, you'll discuss your unique aesthetic goals. Dr. Tripathi conducts a thorough evaluation to understand your unique needs and craft a personalized treatment plan.
  2. Anesthesia: Buccal fat pad removal is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation, ensuring your comfort and safety during the surgery.
  3. Incisions: Dr. Tripathi will create small, discreet incisions inside the mouth. This strategic placement ensures that there are no external scars.
  4. Fat Pad Removal: The buccal fat pad is carefully located and removed, or reduced, depending on your specific needs. Dr. Tripathi's surgical precision ensures the most lasting, natural-looking results.
  5. Closing Incisions: Dr. Tripathi meticulously closes the incisions, promoting minimal scarring and the elegant results you crave.

Recovering Well, Living Well

Here's what to expect during your recovery from buccal fat pad removal:

  • Swelling and Bruising: Mild swelling and bruising in the lower cheeks are common and gradually subside in the days following the procedure. Dr. Tripathi may recommend cold compresses to ease swelling.
  • Soft Diet: You'll need to maintain a soft diet for a few days after the surgery to avoid any unnecessary pressure on the healing incisions.
  • Sutures: You may have sutures in your mouth, but these are typically absorbed by the body over time.
  • Recovery Timeline: While the initial recovery period is about one to two weeks, the final, lasting results may not become fully apparent until several months later after any residual swelling subsides.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Dr. Tripathi and his team will closely monitor your recovery, address any questions or concerns, and ensure your healing progresses smoothly.
