What is Buccal Fat Pad Removal?

Recovery After Buccal Fat Pad Removal

The recovery time for buccal fat pad removal generally follows this timeline:

1. Initial Days Post-Surgery:
  • Patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the cheek area. Pain can usually be managed with prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers. Cold compresses may help reduce swelling. It is important to rest and avoid strenuous activities.
2. First Week:
  • Swelling and bruising will start to subside. Many patients can return to light activities and work within a week, depending on their job and individual healing process. Patients should avoid vigorous activities and maintain good oral hygiene to prevent infection.
3. Weeks 2-3:
  • Swelling and bruising continue to decrease significantly. Most patients feel more comfortable resuming normal activities, but should still avoid strenuous exercise and activities that could impact the healing cheeks.
4. WEEKS 4-6:
  • Most of the swelling should have resolved, and the results of the procedure will start to become more apparent. Patients can typically return to their regular exercise routines and more demanding physical activities.
5. 3-6 MONTHS:
  • Full recovery is generally achieved within this period, with the final results becoming more evident as any residual swelling completely subsides and the cheeks settle into their new contour.

Following Dr. Elahi's specific post-operative care instructions, attending all follow-up appointments, and maintaining good oral hygiene are crucial for a smooth recovery and optimal results. Regular follow-up appointments will help monitor the healing process and address any concerns.
