Buccal fat reduction is an outpatient procedure performed with IV sedation or general anesthesia. The procedure usually takes about an hour. Patients require a soft diet during the immediate recovery period. Most patients plan at least a few days or one week off from work. A longer period of recovery may be necessary for combined procedures. Regular exercise or similar strenuous activity is generally allowed after 2 weeks.
