CHEEK REDUCTION SURGERY OR BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL

The cheek reduction surgery is a procedure to reduce the cheeks’ volume by removing fat deposits from the cheek to enhance facial appearance; also you can obtain more defined cheeks and a balance in your face by boosting the cheekbones.

Cheek reduction is ideal for people over 18 years old. Patients must be in an excellent health condition, no mental or psychological problems and with a positive, realistic outlook on the results.

Most of the patients do not experience any complications derived from this surgery; however, make sure you go over the following possible complications with your surgeon during the consultation to make sure you understand the risks associated with the cheek reduction surgery.

Infections after this procedure are rare. If it happens, the patient might require additional antibiotic and surgical treatment. Also, bruises, or excessive swelling can happen, these will subside days after the procedure.

1. All your questions and concerns must have been resolved by your surgeon.

2. 10 days before the surgery, you cannot take any anti-inflammatory, aspirins, omega 3, 6 or 9, or vitamin E. These medications might increase the risk of bleeding.

3. You cannot have cold symptoms.

4. You need to arrange for someone to pick you up at the clinic after the procedure

 

Cheek reduction is an outpatient procedure that lasts about 1 hour. We usually use local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. Two small incisions are created between the cheek and gums, the fat is removed and the incisions are closed. This surgery can be combined with neck contouring or neck lift surgery.

You must keep excellent oral hygiene after each meal to avoid infections due to food debris. Do not eat fried food 10 days after the surgery.

  • Avoid physically demanding activities during the first week after surgery.
  • Maintain regular oral and facial hygiene
  • Also, remember that it is very important to attend your post-op checkups and take the medications prescribed.

3 days However, keep in mind that:

  • Patients who live in other cities of Colombia or abroad must stay in the city for: 5 days
  • Post-op appointments: every 3 days, they can be done via skype (J-gil79)

Testimonials

My name is Liz Duarte, I am 25 years old. All my life, I experienced criticism due to visible humps in my bridge and the huge nostrils. I felt really self-conscious about it. I heard about Dr. Gil through my boss who had various procedures done with him and spoke really highly of the service and the results. One day, I called to find out about costs and payment methods, the information I received was very complete, and so I asked for a consultation. Dr. Gil requested some lab exams and a consult with the anesthesiologist. A week later, I had my surgery. I must admit the recovery was a little painful because it was my first surgery ever. The bruises disappeared little by little. The post-surgery recommendations are very important to follow.

Right now, my nose is perfect and I receive many compliments. Dr. Gil knows what he is doing and he does it very well.
