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.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks, such as infection, bleeding, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. It's crucial to discuss potential risks with your surgeon.

Yes, it's common for patients to combine buccal fat pad removal with other procedures such as a facelift, chin augmentation, or rhinoplasty.
