What is a Bichectomy?

The extraction of the Bichat Bags, or Bichectomy, is a procedure made to reduce the volume of cheeks in order to improve and define the rest of the facial features, such as the jaw and cheekbones.

Who is the Ideal Patient?

The ideal candidates for this cosmetic surgery are patients that have a bulky facial look due the volume of their cheeks, which wish to have more defined facial features. This procedure can be performed in patients over 18 years old.

How is it performed?

This procedure consists in removing the Bichat Bags, fatty tissue encapsulated in the cheek area.  A small incision is made inside of each cheek to remove said tissue totally or partially. It is a very simple surgery with minimal discomfort to the patient.

The Bichectomy is an outpatient surgery (also known as ambulatory surgery), which means the patient can go home the same day of the procedure.

The surgery lasts around 1 hour and the patient must be under observation for approximately 4 hours.

Recovery Process

Recovery is around 1 week long, and you’ll start seeing final results around one month after the procedure, once your face has completely recovered, but you will begin to see results around the 7th day after the surgery. You must attend to a check-up consultation 7 days after the procedure.
