Plastic surgery in Bangkok - Buccal Fat Removal at HERS CLINIC (Part 2)


If you haven't read Part 1 of my buccal fat removal,  here's the link:

At about 3pm, I reached Hers clinic. The clinic is located right beside a MRT Station so quite easy to find. Hers clinic is super modern and very clean! I'm a person who's very anal about all the interior designs but I'm gonna rate this interior a 5/5 😂









When I took this photo of the reception desk, the staffs were like super excited and they were like smiling and posing for the picture. So cute!! 😆

Hers clinic has 2 storeys but I did my surgery and everything at the first floor. They have a washroom at the 2nd floor.






And that's me all excited!!!!!!



Pre surgery & consultation

At about 3.30pm, I had my consultation with Dr Joe. Dr Joe was super kind and he can speak fluent English! He is also extremely patient and answered all my questions. His desk was full of diagrams and those science sculptures HAHA It's like he prepared all these sculptures just for explaining the buccal fat removal to his patients 😂

Initially I always thought that the fat under our skin is the fat that affects the roundness of our face but no, it's the buccal fat. And buccal fat cannot be removed by liposuction so the only method is by buccal fat removal surgery. Dr Joe explained shitload of things to me and all the things he told me are in Part 1.

He marked the area of my buccal fat (the circle part) and jaw muscles (the shaded triangle) with a marker. Please take a moment to appreciate the circle coz seriously the circle on my buccal fat area is the BEST CIRCLE I've ever seen in my life 👏






After the consultation, they took more pictures of me and the nurse gave me some painkillers + antibiotics. Then I waited at the sofa and took some last selfies of my baby cheeks. You can tell that my cheeks aren't even on both sides. The left is much much fatter the right and Dr Joe said it's because my left cheek has more buccal fat LOL. Goodbye baby fats I won't miss you! 😤







Surgery time! 

The whole procedure was literally NOT PAIN AT ALL!! I did threadlift and 水光针 before (something like restylane booster) but the buccal fat removal is even less pain than those. It's even better than going to a Dentist 😷 👍

The surgical theatre was white and comfortable. The Nurses ushered me to lay down on a flat surgical bed and they took a few pictures of me when I was lying down there. They strapped a blood pressure thing on my arm to measure my heartbeat and kept it on for the entire surgery. Tbh it was quite annoying at times 😂  Whenever I hear my heartbeat getting faster, I felt I was too nervous and I tried calming myself down but end up my heartbeat got faster! So the nurse held on to my hand the whole while 😂  But let me tell you - I WASN'T NERVOUS! I WAS EXCITED OK.

Dr Joe came in and sprayed a numbing liquid in my mouth. At first I thought he was only going to use a numbing spray for the surgery so I kinda freaked out. But in fact, Dr Joe used the numbing spray to numb my entire mouth, tongue and throat so the anaesthetic injection became painless .

Usually Doctors will go straight ahead to make the anaesthetic injection without the numbing spray and they will tell you "you will only feel pain for this anaesthetic jab" blablabla *rolling my eyes* but I still feel the pain alright! But Dr Joe was different. He used the numbing spray first, so that the anaesthetic injection was painless. Dr Joe is such a kind soul 😇

Dr Joe then made a tiny incision in my left cheek and started pulling the fat out. He told me what's he gonna do every now and then, which made me feel super assured because I knew what was going on during the whole surgery. I couldn't feel anything though so I just listened to the jazz music in the surgical theatre throughout the whole surgery 😴

I showed my family the pictures and they said the fat looks kinda cute haha. And my teeth looks so straight here 😂

After that the whole procedure was PAINLESS from the start to the end.. throughout the surgery, Dr Joe kept asking me to swallow my saliva. I expected to taste some salty blood but I didn't taste anything 😳  Probably because my tongue is numb from the numbing spray. Dr Joe was also super kind! He kept encouraging me like "VERY GOOD" "open your mouth" "close your mouth" "VERYYY good!". You know those words made me feel like I'm the BEST patient EVER.

After removing the fat on my left cheek, Dr Joe sewed my incision with adsorbable stitches and he spent some time making sure the stitches are tight. He told me it's important to make it tight so the cheeks/skin will not sag after the fat are removed. The last thing I want is having my same old round face because of the loose skin even though the fat was removed 😪

When the left cheek was done, Dr Joe asked me to use my tongue to feel the left cheek and the right cheek. I WAS SHOOK!!! My tongue couldn't even feel any fat on my left cheek - it was like there's an empty space. And my left cheek felt so much lighter as compared to my right cheek!

 Dr Joe handed me a mirror and when I looked into the mirror, I literally went "OH MY GOD". You guys knew my left cheek was much bigger than the right cheek before the surgery. But now my left cheek is so much smaller than the right one 😱 😱 😱  You can see it for yourself! The first 2 pictures are before surgery and the next 2 pictures are right after my left buccal fat was removed.








For the rest of the surgery, I was MAD EXCITED just thinking about how slim my face will be after the surgery 😆  The surgery was a breeze and before I knew it, it was over! Total duration about 40 minutes. But it definitely felt less than 30 minutes! Both sides came out equally proportionate after the buccal fat was removed.

After the whole surgery, Dr Joe asked me to smile for some photos and I smiled so big despite having numb cheeks. I mean c'mon I'm DAMN HAPPY!! You have no idea how elated I felt - painless and superb results immediately! 😁  And the results are definitely better than in the pictures!! Somehow I wish I can bring my fats home! If the custom officer asks me "what's that?" I can proudly declare "My baby fat that I've lost 😎 "

Of course after the surgery, the swelling started to develop gradually. The nurse told me the swelling will be at its worst on Day 3 but after Day 3 the swelling will gradually subside. By day 10 it should be more or less OK. Can't wait!! I'll update you guys on the results yea



Post surgery

Right after the surgery, I was sent to a recovery room and was given a tight face mask with ice packs stuffed near my cheeks area. I rested on the comfy recliner for about 30 minutes, and then they gave me a light therapy to help with the recovery.

The light therapy was something like a facial treatment with just light shining at me, but my eyes were covered so I couldn't see the light. It was so calming I fell asleep on the recliner 😅  I think I was tooooo tired from my early flight. Did I told you guys my flight was 6.55am and I had to wake up at bloody 4am... Kid you not I wish I could spend the night on the recliner 😂





I was given my medicine after that and the medicine box was super cute! I will talk more about my recovery in my next blog post (Part 3). That's all for this blog post! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me: winnie.aimikyoto@gmail.com
