    What is a Buccal Fat Removal?

    Bichectomy is a procedure to reduce fat on the patient’s face to achieve structured cheekbones. In some cases, patients can have more than usual fat tissue on their cheeks (Bichat fat pad). However, this fat pad cannot reduce with adequate diets or exercises, as the condition is genetically passed. This tissue can render the patient’s face rounder and sometimes puffy if it is larger than average.

    However, when the surgeon performs a bichectomy to remove the tissue, the patient acquires a more structured face and cheekbones. The surgeon opens one centimetre long incisions on the cheeks’ inside through the operation, removes the Bichat fat pad, and closes the incision by suturing. The surgeon concludes the procedure in an hour. The process does not leave any permanent or visible scars, as the incisions are made on the inside.

    Cheek Fat Removal Abroad

    Having plastic surgeries such as bichectomy abroad with Clinic Center’s assistance offers many advantages for international patients. Our team of partner surgeons are renowned and acknowledged surgeons in their fields and carry out hundreds of successful operations under the roof of Clinic Center each year.

    Following the procedure, patients should rest for a day. After their rest, they can explore the city. The surgeon concludes the process approximately one to two hours while the patient is under general anaesthesia. After a week of rest, patients can resume their work as usual. If the patient has questions or concerns during their recovery, they can consult with our aftercare team. During their treatment with Clinic Center, patients can ask for advice from their specialists on further interventions to achieve a better result.
