Hello everyone! I've headed to Bangkok (again haha) for my Buccal fat pad removal! Buccal fat removal is removing the fat from the cheeks. I'm actually blogging from Day 2 of my surgery and I am so so so SO SO HAPPY 😆
After doing a year of research and checking on forums, I decided to go to Dr Naruichit (Dr Joe) from HERS Clinic in Bangkok, who is specialised on Buccal fat removal.
Why did I decide to go for Buccal fat removal?
1) I want a SMALLER FACE
Buccal fat is the same as cheeks fat, or some people call it "baby fat". You know when you pinch a baby's cheek and go "SO CUTE" yea that's our buccal fat! Normally when we age, the buccal fat will go away but mine is still there!! Sigh I didn't age properly 😞
From the picture below, the left face is the buccal fat we have when we were babies. The right face is what will happen to our buccal fat as we become adults - Some of us will lose the buccal fat when we become adults but if we don't lose it, the buccal fat will drop downwards and fill your lower cheeks with fat.
The downside of having baby fat as an adult is having a BIGGER and CHUBBIER face, which is not aesthetically pleasing. Aka not pretty 😖
The video for buccal fat removal is quite graphic.. but watch it! When I watched the video I have that huge urge to pull out that yellow fat from inside my mouth 😂 The video is sick and not for the weak (DAMN! It rhymes) but it's like one of those "satisfying" videos
2) It is very EFFECTIVE!!
There are 2 layers of fat in our cheeks:
1) Fat under our skin
2) Buccal fat (beneath the muscle)
Fat under our skin is usually caused by eating unhealthy food. It can be removed by Mesofat or Liposuction on the face but usually the results are not very obvious. Why? Look at the picture below! It only takes up around 1/5 of our skin layer so of course removing it won't make any much difference 😔
The MAIN CULRPIT of our fatty cheeks is our buccal fat. That's why although I changed my diet to a non carbo one, my cheeks still remain fatty af... 😭 Dieting only affect the fat under our skin which is negligibly little.
The results from Buccal fat removal is ultra extreme if removed correctly. Below are some results from Hers clinic. SO COOL RIGHT!! You can see more pics in the link here:
3) It is a very SAFE and small surgery (as compared to jaw bone shaving etc)
The surgery only uses local anaesthesia in your cheeks and the whole surgery was NO PAIN!!! I'm serious! I will talk more about my experience in Part 2 😌 The anaesthesia used is actually the same as the one in dental clinics. Just imagine you're going to a dentist LOL. To be honest it's even better than going to a dentist because I hate dentists they always give me pimples from their dirty equipments URGH
The buccal fat surgery is a really small procedure and the whole procedure is so short.. about 30 minutes. More like a "lunch time treatment" LOL Go in and sleep for 30 minutes and poof you're done! THAT IS REALLY EASY!
There are also not much risks and complications for removing your buccal fat. You don't have to go back to the clinic to remove whatever stitches because they use absorbable stitch and the incision is super small. I can't even feel my incision with my tongue now 😂
Unlike jaw bone shaving which may result in the lost of bone structure and skin sagging, the buccal fat removal will not result in any skin sagging. And the downtime for recovery is much shorter than the jaw shaving surgery. No offence but I'm kinda against jaw bone shaving after reading about all the warnings on realself.com. It's really dangerous and there's many side effects in the future like premature aging etc
Why did I decide to go to HERS Clinic?
1) Hers Clinic is famous and very SPECIALISED on Buccal fat removal
There are quite a few Thailand forums for all the plastic surgeries but the most famous one is DUNGDONG. It's like our YAHOO forum and people just post reviews of their plastic surgery experiences.
If you take your time to study, you will notice that most of the patients who did their Buccal fat removal were from HERS Clinic. All these reviews on Dungdong are written by the customers so confirm they're reliable.
In my opinion, more customers = doctor more experienced on the buccal fat removal. Dr Joe is specialised on buccal fat removal anyway! Afterall, you won't want a doctor who's specialised on rhinoplasty to do your buccal fat removal. In fact, the most important thing for doing a plastic surgery procedure is selecting your SURGEON, not the clinic.
I kinda stalked Dr Joe over the internet and realised how experienced is Dr Joe. He was even a Lecturer on Bucceal fat pad removal at ABLS Thailand Conference! He's the doctor who did all the buccal fat removal in HERS Clinic since the opening of the clinic so no doubts about his skills 👏 And also no doubt for my stalking skills His name is Dr Naruichit but I think his english name or nickname is Dr Joe
2) The results of the buccal fat removal in HERS Clinic are impressive
Most of the other doctors only managed to remove a small amount of fat, but Dr Joe from HERS Clinic removes the correct amount of the fat in the whole lower cheek area. I know the results are great because I'm blogging from Day 2 and I've seen my results 😱 👍 👍
3) Dr Joe uses the best technique for Buccal fat removal
One thing you need to make sure is that your skin is tight after the buccal fat removal. If not, your buccal fat may be removed but your face may still appear big and round because the skin is not tightened. Dr Joe tightened and stitched up the incision really tightly so that there won't be any sagging.
4) Price is affordable!!
The price of buccal fat removal is really reasonable (19900 baht = about 800SGD). Cheap and good! 😄 Although the price should not be a main factor to select the doctor you should go with, it is really a reasonable price for the surgery and for the best buccal fat surgeon.
That's all for Part 1. I will write about my surgery experience in PART 2 😆 For any questions, don't hesitate to contact me: email@example.com
