Returned recently from my surgery and work at Dental Cosmetics in Alajuela, San Jose and loved my experience. Even before I arrived, Diana and staff helped me with all the information I needed over WhatsApp and clearly explained my case. Location was easy to get to when I arrived, simple check in process, and Dr. Fernandez was very thorough about my surgery, overview of teeth, and hospitality. Karla did a fantastic job with the IV infusions before, during, and after surgery. Dental Cosmetics CR are fantastic and I look forward to going back! Pricing, quality of work, and hospitality make this place 5 stars

Buccal Fat Extraction is considered a plastic / cosmetic surgery procedure that requires coordination between a plastic surgeon, anesthetist and other surgical medical staff. This type of Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery procedure / treatment can be considered reasonably expensive, especially given the skill set, experience, training and equipment used by the specialists involved. For Buccal Fat Extraction, photos are required for the specialist to review prior to treatment.
As with all plastic surgeries, recovery varies from person to person and this is no different for Buccal Fat Extraction, where the immediate recovery post-op can take a few days before you're moving around again. You should anticipate an extended period of rest immediately following your surgery, during which time you should avoid any heavy lifting and strenuous exercising. After a week or so, you can expect to return to light activities, gradually breaking yourself in over the new few weeks and months. The plastic surgeon will provide you with a detailed post-operative aftercare plan, which should be closely followed. This may include exercises and stretches, a diet plan and advice on how to treat the wounds.
You will be required to stay in Costa Rica for around 10-14 days post-op. During this time you'll be required to visit the surgeon for a post-op checkup and have stitches removed. Once given the all clear, you'll be able to travel home, it's very rare for travel arrangements needing to be changed as the success rate for Buccal Fat Extraction is very high. This is mostly down to the more recent advances in medical technologies and surgical techniques, coupled with the extended experience of the plastic surgeons. However, the risk of complications is always there and these may include infection of the wound, bleeding, numbness and swelling around the wound and damaged scar tissue. To reduce the likelihood of such complications, all patients need to do is rest immediately after surgery and adhere to the surgeon's aftercare and recovery advice.
