Bichectomy is the extraction of fat on the bichat balls, the bichat balls are anatomical fat structures that are found in the cheeks and may sometimes round up the facial features. With the extraction of Bichat Balls it would be possible to accentuate the cheekbone and contour the face. But it´s not intended to rejuvenate face.
This surgical procedure is really simple, it is carried out under local anesthesia and requires no hospitalization. The complete process lasts between 30 to 45 minutes, making an intraoral incision.
The Recovery Process is done at home, during the first days the cheek volume raises and there might be some pain in the area. After a couple weeks the inflammation will reduce, and it is really important to keep a good oral hygiene before and after the surgery to avoid any kind of diseases. After three months the final results will be noticed giving a definitive result, even if the patient gains weight.
