What Is a Bichectomy?

Buccal Fat Removal Bogota, also known as “the Hollywood Cheek” procedure, is a facial surgery performed to make the facial structure slim or remove excess fat deposits around the cheeks. Incisions are carefully made through the mouth to extract excess fat from the Bichat bags (located under the cheekbones), which would otherwise make your face look more rotund.

After the removal of this excess fat, you will have a more aesthetically pleasing contour around your cheeks that highlights the facial angles. A Buccal Fat Removal Colombia procedure is recommended for both men and women, especially those with a rounded face despite being thin or after excessive weight loss.

Who Should Opt For Buccal Fat Removal Colombia?

A bichectomy is recommended for individuals who want to achieve a more angular and contoured facial appearance. This includes people who have a significantly round face with excessive cheek volume, individuals with poorly defined cheekbones or those with an exaggeratedly wide face that takes away the definition from their jawline.

How Is Bichectomy Performed?

A bichectomy is a straightforward facial surgery, usually performed under the administration of general anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon will create 1.5 cm small incisions on the inside of the mouth which will allow access to the Bichat bags. From here, the excess buccal fat pads are removed intraorally. Once removed, the incisions are closed with sutures.

The procedure is fairly simple and has a low chance of complications. However, we always recommend that you rely on a board-certified plastic surgeon with knowledge of facial anatomy and the potential pitfalls of the fat pad. An incorrect procedure could lead to complications with the facial nerves present near the buccal fat pads.

After your Buccal Fat Removal Bogota, you may experience post-surgical inflammation. The definitive results may not be visible until after the first 6 months. However, the bichectomy surgery scars remain entirely hidden on the inside of the patient’s cheek, making the procedure completely unnoticeable.

Advantages of Bichectomy

There are several advantages of Buccal fat removal that make it one of our most requested facial procedures:

  • Buccal fat removal delivers a stylized face with well-defined facial cheekbones, maintaining facial harmony.
  • Bichectomy gives definition to the jawline and facial contours.
  • The procedure provides a more symmetrical, youthful facial appearance.
  • The recovery period for bichectomy is short. Patients can resume their daily activities in just one week post-surgery with some postoperative care guidelines.
  • Bichectomy offers life-long results; once the buccal fat is removed, it does not grow back!

Postoperative Care After A Bichectomy

A bichectomy procedure can leave slight inflammation and pain near the surgical site. To ensure your recovery runs smoothly and you achieve your desired results, it is important to follow your plastic surgeon’s prescribed postoperative care:

  • Rest at home for at least 3 days post-surgery.
  • Avoid any physically demanding movements for the first three weeks.
  • Do not remove the compression bandage from around the face, as it will help prevent bruising and reduce swelling.
  • Make sure you intake prescribed medications on time.
  • Pay attention to oral hygiene to promote quick healing and avoid possible wound infections. You should also use gentle salt rinses for the first two days and antiseptic rinses after every meal.
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking and eat soft diet foods.
  • Avoid direct exposure to the sun for the first 2 weeks.
  • If you experience excessive inflammation, bleeding and deep bruising, contact your plastic surgeon immediately.
