This is a plastic surgery designed to remove the fat pads of Bichat which are fatty deposits located at the cheeks.
It aims to reduce the volume of the lower part of the face and give it a more triangular shape by highlighting the cheekbones, resulting in a more harmonious and attractive face.
During consultation, the surgeon will discuss your general health, examine your facial skin, tissue and bone structure, and inquire about your goals for surgery.
Bichectomy takes place at a surgical room under general anesthesia and usually takes 2 hours.
In the case a small discomfort feeling arises around the mouth area, the doctor will prescribe medications. Recovery from this procedure is very fast and you may return to work on the next day.
Bichectomy surgery is a very safe procedure and risks could be avoided when following the surgeon´s advice. Minor complications may include bruises, infections, facial nerve injury, poor healing (most common in smokers) and hair loss at the incision site
Results would be visible once bruising disappears and the healing process is completed, usually after 3 to 5 weeks. Once bruising disappears your profile would improve notoriously.
