Information about our Bichectomy/Cheek fat removal surgery
What is an Bichectomy/Cheek fat removal procedure?
The goal of buccal fat removal is to thin the cheeks, specifically in the area of the cheek hollows. Although a face that is naturally soft and filled out is considered youthful, some people find that their face feels too full, even chubby.
A buccal fat removal removes the buccal fat pad, a naturally-occurring pad of fat in the cheek hollow area. The size of the buccal fat pad varies with each individual patient, and the buccal fat pad in each cheek may be different sizes. Buccal fat pad extraction surgery is typically not performed in people with thin, narrow faces as removal of the fat may cause the face to look more gaunt with age.

Why have a Bichectomy/Cheek fat removal procedure?
A candidate for this type of surgery normally has an excessive facial roundness or “over full” aspect which gives him/her a heavy-looking face. ... This aesthetic surgical procedure gives the face a more youthful/thinner appearance as well as being more aesthetically/harmoniously balanced.

How is the surgery performed?
A buccal fat removal surgery requires an incision on the inside of the mouth, on the inner portion of your cheek. Occasionally, the buccal fat pad may be removed during a facelift and not necessitate an incision inside the mouth.
