Learn more about our Bichectomy Surgery at Clínica Tintoré

Bichectomy is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing the volume of Bichat's bags, which are fat deposits in the cheeks. This facial surgery aims to sculpt and define the contour of the face, providing a more stylized appearance. By undergoing a bichectomy, you will be able to have the area of your cheekbones and jaw more defined. The procedure involves making incisions through which the surgeon can reposition underlying tissues, remove excess skin and, in some cases, redistribute fat to achieve a more rejuvenated facial appearance.

Lipofit4D Facial

This technique involves the removal of unwanted fat deposits in various areas of the face and neck. It can usually be combined with bichectomy surgery, improving facial contour and definition.

Face Lift

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve the visible signs of aging on the face and neck. This procedure seeks to tighten the skin and facial tissues, removing excess skin and reducing wrinkles and sagging.

Frequent questions

Does bichectomy leave visible scars?

The incision made for the bichectomy is on the inside of the cheeks, so the scars are not visible. Patients usually experience a faster recovery due to this factor since the inner part of the cheek has a very good healing process.

Are the results of bichectomy permanent?

Bichectomy, by eliminating part of the Bichat bags (fatty tissue in the cheeks), has results that can be permanent. However, it is important to note that the natural aging process and other factors can affect facial appearance over time.

Additionally, factors such as weight fluctuation can have an impact on facial appearance. While bichectomy can provide long-lasting results, it cannot stop the aging process or prevent changes in facial fat due to other factors.

Can bichectomy be combined with other facial aesthetic procedures?

Yes, bichectomy can be combined with other facial aesthetic procedures depending on your objectives. To address other aspects of the face, surgery can be changed with procedures such as facial and jowl liposuction, face lift, rhinoplasty, botulinum toxin injections or hyaluronic acid filler.

Do you lose sensitivity after surgery?

Sensitivity is not lost since the surgery tries to modify the shape of the dermal tissue, so it is an intervention that is carried out at a completely superficial level. Sensitivity comes from the nerves and the procedure and techniques we apply do not intervene with them. However, it is common that for a few months you can notice internal inflammation in the area and this generates sensitivity; in any case, it recovers completely over time.

How long does it take to see bichectomy results?

Initial results may be visible after the swelling subsides and the final result may take weeks or even months to fully manifest as you fully recover.
