Buccal fat removal.


Buccal fat removal consists of slimming the cheeks. It consists of Bichat’s adipose bag remover, which is located in two fat compartments inside the cheeks.

The Bichat fat bag is an accumulation of fat located between the masseter muscle and the buccinator muscle on both sides of the face. These two muscles that allow chewing movements need a lubricating fat pad, which is the Bichat bag.

What does Bichectomy consist of?

Although all people have them, in some cases, these fatty cushions develop exaggeratedly, resulting in a face that is too round and bulky. It is then necessary to perform a thinning by reducing the Bichat bags. The volume of this fat is not necessarily related to body weight, and that is why many thin people can have a thick and extended face that does not correspond to their body weight.

Facial thinning by resection of Bichat bags reduces the volume of the cheeks, providing an appearance of greater character, freshness, and naturalness.

The surgeon makes a small incision on the inside of the cheeks, near the fat bags, and once the surgeon localizes them, removes them, and completes their extraction, he then sutures the wound. It is a quick procedure that takes hardly more than an hour to complete. A slimming effect on the face is achieved without visible scars.
