Bichectomy Málaga

Have you ever wondered how you can have a more sculpted and defined face without having to spend hours in the gym or follow a strict diet? If so, you may want to consider a bichectomy, an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure performed to reduce the size of pockets of fat on the cheeks, also known as Bichat balls.

Bichectomy is a simple procedure that can significantly improve the appearance of your face and provide you with long-term results. In this article, we'll tell you everything you need to know about a bichectomy so you can make an informed decision about whether it's the right procedure for you.

What is Bichectomy

Bichectomy is a surgical procedure that aims to remove or reduce the size of Bichat fat pockets, also known as Bichat balls.

These pockets of fat are found on the cheeks and can give the face a more rounded appearance.

Bichectomy is an aesthetic procedure that seeks to refine and sculpt the face, providing a more angular and defined appearance in the area of ​​the cheeks and cheekbones. This surgery is popular among people who want to improve their facial appearance and can be performed on both men and women.

Types of Bichectomy

There are several types of bichectomy that plastic surgeons can perform according to the needs and desires of each patient. Some of the most common types of bichectomy are:

total bichectomy

Total bichectomy, this is the most common type of bichectomy in which the fat pockets in the cheeks are completely removed. This procedure is ideal for people who want a significant reduction in the volume of their cheeks.

partial bichectomy

In partial bichectomy, only a part of the fat bags in the cheeks are removed. This type of bichectomy is suitable for people who want a more defined and less bulging appearance in their cheeks, but do not want a full reduction.

Combined bichectomy

Combined bichectomy involves combining the bichectomy with other cosmetic procedures, such as rhinoplasty or brow lift. This type of bichectomy is ideal for people who want a more dramatic change in their facial appearance.

Bichectomy without surgery

Non-surgical bichectomy involves the removal of fat from the Bichat pockets using injections of enzymes that break down the fat. This procedure is less invasive than the traditional bichectomy, but the results may not be as dramatic.

It is important to discuss bichectomy options with an experienced plastic surgeon to determine which type of bichectomy is right for each patient. Each type of bichectomy has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the surgeon can help patients make the best decision based on their cosmetic goals and health status.
