Get a more youthful and radiant look, with a more defined profile that will highlight your cheekbones and the bone structure of your face. Not only will bichectomy give you a more attractive look, but it will also help you feel more confident and confident about yourself.

What is the Bichectomy?

Bichetomy is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery that involves the removal of Bichat bags, small accumulations of fat located in the cheeks, under the cheekbones. These bags perform the function of cushioning the facial muscles.

The procedure is performed through an incision 1 to 2 cm long inside the mouth, at the height of the upper molars, on the inside of the cheeks.

Why should you have the Bichectomy?

  • Round face or prominent “cheeks”: If your face has a round shape or you feel your cheeks are too bulky, bichectomy can help you achieve a thinner, more defined profile.
  • Harmonize factions: Bichectomy can be an effective tool to balance the proportions of the face, creating greater aesthetic harmony.
  • Desire for more marked cheekbones: The removal of Bichat bags highlights the cheekbones, providing a more youthful and attractive appearance.

Después de la cirugía de Bichectomy

Desde el primer momento de tu cirugía

  • Aplicación de compresas frías: Inmediatamente después de la cirugía, se te colocará una venda compresora para controlar la hinchazón. También puedes aplicar hielo en las mejillas durante las primeras 24 horas para reducir la inflamación.
  • Medicamentos: Te recetaré antibióticos para prevenir infecciones y antiinflamatorios para aliviar el dolor leve que puedas experimentar.

Resultados de tu Bichectomy

  • Inflammation: It is normal to observe a slight asymmetry in the inflammation of the cheeks during the first days. This will gradually disappear as the recovery progresses.
  • Appearance of results: The definitive results of the bichetomy will be seen within 4 to 6 weeks, once the swelling has completely decreased.

What would be the discomfort and care that you should consider?

  • Soft diet: During the first days, I recommend eating soft and easy to chew foods to avoid discomfort in the intervened area.
  • Oral hygiene: It is essential to maintain a strict oral hygiene, making mouthwashes with antiseptic several times a day to prevent infections.
  • Avoid efforts: During the first week, it is recommended to avoid intense physical activities or involving significant physical effort.
  • Rest: Sleeping with your head slightly elevated during the first few days may help reduce swelling.

Important recommendations

  • Avoid smoking and alcohol: These substances can delay healing and increase the risk of complications.
  • Attend your control appointments: It is essential to follow the instructions of your surgeon and attend the scheduled control appointments to evaluate your progress and ensure that your recovery is properly developed.

Ask your questions: Do not hesitate to contact me for any questions or concerns you have during your recovery process. Trust me and your body. Together we will make your breast augmentation a successful and satisfying experience.
