What is Buccal Fat Removal?
Buccal fat removal or Bichectomy is a surgery that helps thinning the cheeks by removing the facial fat. Having a mid cheek slight depression makes both the jawline and especially the cheeks look more defined. It also makes the person look slimmer and gives her/him a much more elegant beauty.
Short description of the procedure
With this procedure we’re able to remove the fat stored in the cheek and therefore enhance cheekbones and the contours of the jawline and face.
This minor surgical procedure is done under local anesthesia during which a hidden intra-buccal small incision is made and the buccal fat pad located in the mid-cheek is carefully removed.
How long does the procedure last?
The whole procedure takes 40-60 minutes.
What about the recovery?
The patient can directly resume his regular life with minimal restrictions during the first 2 weeks.
