A Bichectomy, also commonly known as buccal fat removal, has become one of the most popular cosmetic operations over the past years, with many celebrities leading and joining the trend.
It is a relatively easy procedure. The surgeon makes incisions right underneath the buccal fat pads in the inner parts of the cheeks and extracts excess fat to give you a slimmer and modelesque face. Once the extraction is completed, the surgeon closes or sutures the incisions. Buccal fat removal is a painless and short procedure that only takes 30 minutes to an hour.
You must pronounce in detail the exact shape and structure you want during your consultation with your surgeon.
You are an ideal candidate for a Bichectomy if you:
- Have excess fat concentrated on your mid-face
- Have chubby cheeks that you do not like
- Have thicker facial features
- Want a slimmer and more stylish appearance
- Want to highlight the structure of your face and cheekbones
The recovery process is fast.
A professionally performed Bichectomy leaves no visible scars on the face as the incisions are made in the inner part of the mouth.
No need for a hospital stay after a buccal fat removal, you will be discharged within an hour.
Results are permanent.
As the Voila healthcare team, we will ensure that you have gone through all the necessary health checkups before your surgery, and always be there for you during recovery to ensure you feel your best the whole time.
Aftercare is as important as the surgery itself when it comes to boosting the effects of the procedure.
Quitting smoking and drinking during the healing process is recommended, as smoking and alcohol intake might slow down the healing and potentially affect the surgery results.
Make sure you keep yourself propped up with multiple pillows while lying down or sleeping.
Swelling is expected but it will start to go down after days 2 and 3, which are the most challenging. Just trust the process.
If necessary, your doctor may prescribe you painkillers.
Patience is key. A better you is on the way!
