Bichectomy

Many patients seek Dr. Elizabeth Ruiz to change the shape or size of their cheeks. Buccal fat reduction involves reducing the deep of fatty tissue of the cheek, reducing a rounded appearance.

Sometimes the cheek needs more volume, correcting a flattening look, especially in elderly patients.

Please contact Dr. Elizabeth Ruiz for more information on the surgical resection of bags bichetomiabichat or to schedule a consultation and assessment of your case.

Is the Bichectomy right for me?

The Bichectomy is recommended for anyone who is looking to improve their physical appearance, confidence and the volume of their cheeks. There is no ideal age for this procedure.

Preoperative for Bichectomy

Dr. Elizabeth Ruiz makes all pre-operative recommendations for you to prepare for surgery of cheeks.

Cheeks surgery or Bichectomy

Depending on the cheek area that needs to be molded, the process may involve the addition or removal of fat. Fat removal of the buccal area is performed through an incision inside the mouth to remove pockets of fat in the cheek by liposuction.

The Bichectomy is performed under local anesthesia with sedation.

Bichectomy Recovery

The duration of the patient’s recovery may vary depending on the specific characteristics of each patient, but most return to their normal activities within two to three days. Initially, inflammation can make it difficult to see the results. The swelling will gradually disappear and your new profile will be visible. After surgery the patient must have the head elevated as much as possible in order to reduce swelling.

The fat that is removed during this procedure will not return, but it’s still important to practice healthy habits in order to avoid fluctuations in weight that could alter the shape of your face.

Results of Bichectomy

The result is a more contoured cheek. Particularly when viewed in oblique or three-quarter view, the cheek projects better. The lower cheek looks sharper and younger.
