About the Bichectomy procedure
Bichectomy is a surgical procedure, at the level of the face, which consists in the partial or total removal of Bichat’s bubble. Bichat’s bubble is a small portion/bubble of fat located on the cheek.
The procedure is suitable for patients who want a more defined and slimmer appearance of the face. Especially for people who have a round face and prominent cheeks, this procedure can help them change the shape of their face slightly.
The bichectomy intervention is purely aesthetic, so any patient who wants a slimmer appearance of the face, which better highlights the cheekbones and the mandibular contour.
For patients who want a perfectly defined contour of the face, the procedure can be performed together with slimming face.
How is Bichectomy performed?
The procedure is performed surgically, through small incisions on the cheeks, so that the doctor can extract Bichat’s bubble.
For the comfort and safety of our patients, the intervention is performed under anesthesia.
After the fat bubble is extracted, the area will close and the area will take on the desired appearance.
Even if it is a surgical procedure, shortly after the intervention the patient can go home.
The final result will be visible in a few days after the intervention.
Initially the area will be slightly inflamed, due to the fact that the cheek has undergone an incision.
You can come for a check-up, according to medical recommendations, to make sure that everything is going as it should, and the patient has achieved the desired result.
