Service Description

The treatment known as bichectomy is a surgery of the fat deposited in the cheeks, which consists of the removal of the same to sharpen and thin the face.

Cheek surgery is a treatment to reduce the so-called Bichat bags or balls, which are accumulations of fat independent of the rest of the tissues and are normally located in the thickness of each cheek.

Treatment for men and women

Bichectomy is recommended for anyone who wants to lose weight and define the lower third of the face and must be performed by a certified and trained facial cosmetic specialist.

The fat reduction intervention of cheeks consists of performing a surgery that lasts for no more than 1 hour and uses a local anesthesia procedure. In doing so the plastic surgeon will remove the fatty tissue with an incision of no more than 2 centimeters that is performed inside the cheek so there are no visible scars.

Risks and care
When surgery is performed by a specialist , the risks are minor, such as local inflammation, bruising (bruising) and pain.
Subsequent care consists mainly of placing cold compresses in the operated site, antibiotic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory.
