Buccal fat removal forever young

Buccal fat removal

Buccal fat removal is carry out by specialized facial plastic surgeons at the BB Clinic, in Zalka. This surgical procedure aims to reduce cheek volume by removing a portion of the fat located in the Bichat's fat pads, without leaving visible scarring. It should be noted that achieving a completely satisfactory result solely with this procedure to modify the shape and thickness of the cheeks is rare. For optimal results, it is common to combine this procedure with other surgical procedures. During your appointment, the surgeons at the BB Plastic Surgery Clinic can guide and advise you on the various techniques available to achieve a more harmonious and aesthetic face.

Buccal fat pad, also known as bichectomy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to reduce cheek volume by removing a portion of the fat located in the Bichat's fat pads.
Bichat's fat pads are small pockets of fat located in the cheeks, and their removal can reduce cheek volume and refine facial contours. This procedure is often combined with other surgical procedures such as cheek liposuction, injections of fat tissue or hyaluronic acid in the cheekbones, and sometimes even jaw surgery.
Bichectomy, is usually carried out with local anesthesia and involves a minor cut made inside the mouth to extract surplus fat. The advantage of this technique is that the scar is completely invisible. Post-operative recovery is relatively simple, with mild pain that may last a few days and swelling that will be visible for a few weeks. The final result is visible within 1 to 3 months.
If you are considering redefining the contours of your face and obtaining a slimmer and more refined cheek appearance, the surgeons at the BB Plastic Surgery Clinic are available to answer all of your questions and help you plan your bichectomy.
