Bichectomy or cheek surgery information and locations
A bichectomy is used to remove small fat pockets from inside the cheeks to create a slenderer look on the patient’s face. This is a same day procedure.
This procedure is usually preformed under local anesthesia. The doctor does a small incision from inside the mouth on each cheek and then removes the fat pocket or Bichat bag (as they’re called.) After surgery, patients can see the results immediately having less rounded features.
