Bichectomy, also known as buccal fat removal, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess fat pads from the cheeks, specifically the buccal fat pads. This procedure has gained popularity for its ability to sculpt the face, enhance facial contours, and create a slimmer appearance. Here are some key benefits of bichectomy:

  1. Facial Contouring: Bichectomy is an effective way to contour the face by reducing the fullness in the lower cheeks. It can create a more chiseled and defined appearance, particularly along the cheekbones and jawline.
  2. Slimmer Appearance: For individuals with naturally round or “chubby” cheeks, bichectomy can provide a slimmer and more balanced facial aesthetic. This can lead to increased self-confidence and satisfaction with one’s appearance.
  3. Enhanced Cheekbones: By removing excess fat in the buccal area, bichectomy can bring attention to the cheekbones, making them appear more prominent and sculpted. This can create a youthful and aesthetically pleasing facial profile.
  4. No Visible Scarring: The incisions for bichectomy are typically made inside the mouth, so there are no visible external scars. This adds to the appeal of the procedure for individuals concerned about scarring.
  5. Quick Recovery: Bichectomy is considered a minimally invasive procedure with a relatively quick recovery period. Most patients can return to their normal daily activities within a few days after the surgery.
  6. Permanent Results: The results of bichectomy are typically long-lasting, as the removed fat cells do not regenerate. Once the desired cheek contour is achieved, it is generally maintained over time.
  7. Versatility: Bichectomy can be performed as a standalone procedure or combined with other cosmetic treatments, such as facelifts or blepharoplasty, to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
