Buccal fat removal recovery
Recovery from the procedure is generally quite quick. You made me swollen for a few days, but it generally is not enough to even think about when you are out and about. The procedure really has minimal downtime for most patients. I recommend you seek a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of plastic surgery and has extensive experience with this procedure.
Recovery time from a buccal fat excision
The recovery time after buccal fat excision is rather quick. After the procedure, you will have a few stitches on the inside of the mouth and you will need to eat a soft diet for 3 to 4 days. It will be some swelling present in the face after the surgery. The swelling is typically moderate and will slowly resolve over a few weeks. In regards to your work, I wouldn't think you would need more than a few days off. After that time, you should be older go back to work without significant change in your appearance.
I hope this helps
