Perfect face


Many people have a very round face, bulging cheeks or have fat cushions in an exaggerated way. The "Bichat Bags" are compartments of fat, located on each side of the face (between the masseter muscle and the buccinator muscle); If we extract these bags, we can sharpen the face and even highlight the cheekbones.

Facial aesthetics keeps certain parameters and in this search for harmony patients go with the desire to reduce the volume of their cheeks, and if this is susceptible to be modified with a Bichectomy, then surgery is the plan to follow.

For Bichectomy the patient must be healthy with normal blood test results, the surgery is performed with local anesthesia, and through a small incision of 1mm on each side of the cheek mucosa, the fat is extracted until the result is obtained wanted. The wounds are sutured with an absorbable thread and the patient can return home to rest.

Usually in the plastic surgery of the extraction of the fat bags of Bichat or bichectomy, it can be combined with other procedures to improve the facial structure, achieving a more attractive appearance, such as: nose surgery or rhinoplasty, neck liposuction , etc, depending on the case of the patient.                 → Lose the Face                 → Improve the Facial Profile                 → Project the Cheeks

The cares are soft diets for a week and mouth rinse with rinse., A couple of weeks after surgery the patient will be able to enjoy his new facial contour, much more delineated and fine
