How is Buccal Fat Removal performed?

Dr. Ourian’s signature Beverly Hills buccal fat removal is typically performed under local anesthesia in the office and is a relatively simple procedure. The cheek area is numbed up using a local anesthetic.  An incision is then made inside the mouth on the inner portion of the cheek. Through these incisions, the buccal fat pad will be removed. When this is complete, the incisions are closed using absorbable sutures.

For most, normal day-to-day activities can be resumed the next day after the surgery, or sometimes even the same day as surgery. Dr. Ourian will monitor your healing and give you detailed directions for your recovery process during postoperative appointments.
