1. Consultation and Planning
When you come to a consultation at New Life Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Lee will examine you to make sure you are a candidate for Cheek Reduction. He can give you an idea of what your results will realistically be and you will get all your questions answered.
You will arrive at the office in the morning and be home in the afternoon. This surgery is always done with IV conscious sedation and NOT general anesthesia. Thus you will sleep through the entire procedure but be breathing on your own. You do not need to be intubated.
You will notice a difference immediately after surgery but you will be swollen and the results will improve with time as the swelling goes down. You can use ice packs to help with discomfort and swelling.
Dr. Lee sees all the patients the next day after surgery. Most patients return to work within 1-3 days. You may drive and return to work when you are no long taking prescription pain medicine.
Remember that everyone is different. Recovery times and progression is not the same for everyone. The times stated are typical for healthy individuals healing from this surgery. The normal progression of healing may be different for those with health problems, smokers, and those who have unforeseen complications after surgery.
When you are recovered from buccal fat pad reduction, your cheeks will be more defined and your face will appear thinner. You will love the stunning look you have! Individual results may vary.
