Today, men and women have a young and healthy appearance to be able to reach their ideals in terms of physical appearance. There are several well-known surgical and cosmetic procedures, such as Rhinoplasty, Otoplasty, Brazilian Butt Lift, or Botox that would give you a better look. However, there is a procedure that has gained popularity in recent years due to its short-term results and rapid recovery, buccal fat removal, or also known as Bichectomy.
Bichectomy is an aesthetic facial procedure that consists of Bichat’s adipose bag remover, which is located in two fat compartments inside the cheeks. Do not worry, Bichat bags are not essential for the body and your main one is for the first years of life chewing and sucking for babies.

Buccal fat removal surgery requires an incision on the inside of the mouth, on the inner portion of the cheek. A small 2-4cm long incision will be made between the cheek and gums, near the second molar on both sides of the mouth. Occasionally, the buccal fat pad may be removed during a facelift and not necessitate an incision inside the mouth. Through this incision, fat will be excised, sculpting the cheek to a slender, pleasing contour. Dissolvable sutures will then be used to close the incision.
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.
Recovery Time for Bichectomy
Some swelling, bruising and discomfort are normal immediately following surgery.
Showering and bathing are permitted the day after surgery. Light activity is allowed and encouraged however, no heavy lifting or strenuous activity should be attempted during the first 72 hours after surgery. Aerobic and impact cardio exercise should be avoided for one week post-operatively.
