Bichectomy, commonly known as cheek thinning surgery, is a process of processing excess fat on the cheeks. The buccal fat pad is a fat mass located in the center of the cheeks, beneath the cheekbones. Although everyone has buccal fat pads, they are more pronounced in certain people. For those with prominent buccal fat pads, their cheeks can look very full and, in some cases, even chubby.
In this operation, the excess fat is removed. The incisions are about 1 cm in size. The operation was achieved in about 1 hour. As the process is done through the mouth, there is no visible scar on the face.
Buccal lipectomy is the removal of a pocket of cheek fat. Perfect for chubby cheeks, baby cheeks, chipmunk cheeks and round faces. The buccal fat pad lies in front of the masseter muscle and below the cheek bones. The fat pad is the one that makes babies cheeks look round. Some of us don’t loose this fat even when we loose weight so you can elect to have it reduced.
