Swelling After Buccal Fat Surgery?
Two days ago I had surgery to remove fat on my cheeks, with the buccal fat action … now it’s still swollen on my cheeks, is this normal? Then how long will the swelling go away? Waiting for the answer, thank you …
Swelling after plastic surgery with the buccal fat reduction method will certainly give a swelling effect at the beginning of post-surgery which will subside after some time. For your own safety it's a good idea to check back with the plastic surgeon who did the operation and consult carefully about this condition.
All surgeries will have common side effects such as bleeding, inflammation or swelling, infection and pain.
To reduce swelling you can take the drug according to the doctor's instructions, giving cold compresses if allowed. Regarding how long the swelling will last will depend on each patient. Generally the swelling will peak on the fourth and fifth day then will return to normal after 3 months after surgery.
I hope this helps.
