Bichectomy is a aesthetic surgical procedure designed to slim the face and provide a more sculpted, youthful appearance. This is accomplished by removing the buccal fat pads, which are located in the lower part of the cheeks. The procedure is becoming increasingly popular among the patients who are looking for more defined facial features, particularly in the cheek and jaw areas.

Why Choose Bichectomy?

  1. Facial Slimming: If you have a fuller or “chubby” face, bichectomy can create a more chiseled look.

  2. Youthful Appearance: Removal of the buccal fat pads can help to counteract sagging and give the face a more youthful contour.

  3. Symmetry: If one side of your face has more fat than the other, a bichectomy can restore balance.

Consultation Process

Your bichectomy journey starts with a consultation with our surgeon. During this appointment, our surgeon will discuss your aesthetic goals, go over your medical history, and examine your face to determine if bichectomy is the right option for you. A personalized treatment plan will be devised to meet your specific needs.

The Surgical Procedure

Bichectomy is usually performed under local anesthesia. The procedure typically takes about an hour. An incision is made inside the mouth, between the cheek and gums, limiting any external scarring. The buccal fat pads are then extracted carefully through these incisions. The area is closed with dissolvable stitches.

Recovery Period

Recovery from a bichectomy is generally quick, with most patients able to return to regular activities within a few days but seeing the final results might take few months. You may experience some swelling and discomfort, which usually subside within a week. You will be advised to maintain a soft diet for a few days and to avoid strenuous activities that may put pressure on the face. 

The Results

The effects of a bichectomy become more visible as swelling decreases, usually within a few weeks. The results are long-lasting and contribute to a more contoured, refined facial profile that can enhance your natural beauty and boost your confidence.
