Do you think your cheeks are too “puffy”? Buccal lipectomy will make your face slender and your cheekbones more prominent by removing excess fat from your cheeks.
A relatively simple procedure, the operation is usually performed under general anaesthesia and takes ca 45 minutes. The patient must consult the physician and undergo a prior pre-operative examination.
The surgeon makes an incision in the oral cavity, removes any excess fat, and stitches small wounds, using dissolving stitches. There are no visible scars on the patient’s face because the incision is made inside the cheeks. It’s necessary to maintain impeccable oral hygiene after the operation.
