Operation and Treatment Process
Reasons for Eyelid (Blepharoplasty)
Enhanced Facial Contour: Many opt for this procedure to achieve a more sculpted, defined facial structure, emphasizing the cheekbones.
Reduced Chubby Cheeks: Some people feel their face looks too round or full due to prominent buccal fat pads. Removal can make the face appear more mature and less “baby-faced.”
Boosted Self-Confidence: Like many cosmetic procedures, having a more contoured face can significantly boost self-esteem and confidence in one’s appearance.
Natural Aging Process: As individuals age, the face can accumulate fat in specific areas, distorting the face’s natural contours. Removal can restore a more youthful appearance.
Permanent Results: Unlike some cosmetic treatments that require maintenance, buccal fat pad removal offers a permanent solution for those desiring lasting results.
Minimally Invasive: The procedure, while surgical, is relatively straightforward and minimally invasive, often appealing to those hesitant about undergoing more extensive surgeries.
Combination with Other Procedures: Many see it as an opportunity to enhance other facial features, combining cheek fat removal with procedures like a facelift, rhinoplasty, or chin augmentation.
Quick Recovery: The recovery period for buccal fat pad removal is typically short, allowing individuals to return to their routines relatively quickly.
Discreet Scarring: As incisions are made inside the mouth, there’s no visible scarring post-surgery.
Improved Facial Symmetry: For some, cheek fat removal can help in achieving a more symmetrical facial appearance, especially if one side of the face has more pronounced fat than the other.
