It is a surgical intervention that consists in the extraction of the Bichat balls or bags. As it has been proven that they are only fat and not glands that only give volume to the face, this operation can be performed. It is a procedure that can be done on an outpatient basis. In fact, it takes approximately 40 minutes to make the cuts on the inside of the cheeks. This means that in less than 24 hours you will be back home for recovery. There are no visible scars after the bichectomy, since the cuts are made on the inside of the mouth. Candidates for this surgery are thin people who wish to improve the appearance of their face. Generally, surgeons indicate bichectomy for patients with a round face.
It should be known that patients with excessive flaccidity, advanced age and other contraindications can not undergo this operation.
