Question

How long it would be before I could go back to work without people noticing I had buccal fat reduction done?

Answer

For buccal fat reduction the post-operative swelling is minimal in most patients, so even a few days later it is unlikely that anyone would notice.

In relation to facial sculpting, my approach is to use computer imaging and simulation to try and evaluate the characteristics of your target shape. This allows more accurate planning for the intervention, which may involve buccal fat reduction, liposuction or a combination of the two.

If liposuction is also included, the swelling is slightly longer lasting, and at least a week off work would be suitable.
