Bisha lumps removal is a cheek fat reduction procedure rising in popularity.
Some people find their face being too full, even chubby. Large buccal fat deposits cause the lower face to have a more rounded appearance.
Removal of buccal fat pad is ideal for patients with a chubby appearance that desire a reshaped face contour. It is not recommended for patients with a thin buccal fat pad or narrow face as the removal would not offer the same results as for patients with a fuller face.
While liposuction isn’t recommended for buccal fat pad reduction (because it can damage nerves), buccal fat removal is paired in some cases with liposuction to remove fat and sculpt other areas of the face. It may also be combined with facial fillers to give cheekbones even more prominence.
This quick outpatient procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete and provides permanent facial thinning in a single visit.
It is performed by making small incisions inside the cheeks, usually under local anesthesia.
After the fat pad is removed, the incision is closed with absorbable sutures for faster recovery. There will be no visible scar. The results immediately deliver a beautifully contoured face, however, it will take several weeks to see the final results.
The entire procedure is performed inside the mouth, so no cuts or incisions are made on the face.
At home, you’ll need to keep up a regular ice regimen to reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort.
It’s also recommended to wear a special mask (chin strap) at night for the first two weeks to give your facial skin some extra support.
You can expect significant swelling for about a week. Due to the incisions inside your cheeks, you’ll be advised by the doctor to go on a liquid diet for the first days to avoid a disruption in the suture.
It generally takes about 7-10 days for the tissues inside the mouth to recover following Bisha lumps removal. After 5-7 days, you can return to all normal activities.
Buccal fat removal provides instant results that can be immediately seen after the procedure. However, full results will be visible only after enough time for the swelling and redness to subside.
Buccal Fat Removal has permanent results that will define your midface with a natural-looking contour.
