What is buccal fat removal also known as bichectomy?

Buccal fat removal also known as bichectomy or chubby cheek reduction surgery, is a safe cosmetic procedure during which the buccal fat pads are permanently removed or reduced. Once the pads have been taken out, patients can achieve the chiseled, angular appearance made popular by some of today’s most popular models and social media influencers.

Get rid of chubby cheeks with buccal fat removal surgery

Anyone, regardless of weight, can have chubby cheeks. They are caused by enlarged buccal pads, pockets of fat located in the lower anterior portion of the face. When these pads are bigger than normal, they make the face appear rounder, chubbier, less angular and even more childlike. Enlarged buccal pads have several causes:

  •  Heredity.
  •  Ethnic origin.
  • Obesity (due to enlarged buccal pads and excessive fat under the facial skin).
  • Enlarged muscles of the face caused by frequent chewing of gum or ice.

Because the buccal pads are fed by a rich blood supply that keeps them well-nourished, reducing them with diet and exercise does not usually yield effective results. For most people, a better solution is Buccal fat removal surgery.

Am I a candidate for buccal fat removal?

The ideal candidate for Buccal fat removal in Miami will:

  • Be healthy and at a stable weight.
  • Be a nonsmoker or, at minimum, be willing to cease tobacco use according to your surgeon’s recommendations before and after the procedure.
  •  Have realistic expectations about outcomes.
  • Be dissatisfied with the current appearance of their round face or chubby cheeks.

Can men also get buccal fat removal surgery?

Buccal fat removal is an excellent option for men seeking to permanently get rid of a round baby face that may cause them to be perceived as out of shape, overweight or childish. Once excessive cheek fat is removed, male patients can achieve a more mature and distinguished look that lasts a lifetime.

Cheek reduction surgery steps

How is Surgery Done?

Buccal fat removal in Miami can be achieved in one simple procedure that usually takes approximately an hour. It can even be customized to fit each patient’s individual needs. During the operation, the surgeon will apply a local anesthetic to numb the area, create an incision in each cheek and remove some or all of the buccal fat pads according to the specifications previously agreed upon. The incisions are then sutured, and the patient is given after-care instructions. You can expect to have at least one follow-up visit as well so that the surgeon can check on how well the incisions are healing.

This simple, minimally invasive procedure includes:

1. Anesthesia

Administering local anesthesia to numb the cheek area.

2. Incisions

Making an incision on the inside of your mouth in the inner portion of each cheek.

3. Fat pad Removal

Removing some or all of each buccal fat pad. The surgeon exposes and partially cuts the protruding buccal fat pad or can totally remove it.

4. Closing the incisions

Closing the incisions with sutures.

Buccal fat removal recovery and post-op care

After relatively little pain and a minimal recovery period of just a few weeks, you will achieve the sculpted, thinner face you have always wanted.

As soon as your procedure is completed, your surgeon will tell you everything you need to do to promote a healthy recovery. You will learn how to care for your incisions, including by using an oral rinse and going on a liquid diet for one to two days. During the next three weeks or so, you should expect the swelling, bruising and discomfort you initially experience to gradually diminish. The most important thing you can do after your bichectomy is to follow your surgeon’s recommendations. Should any questions or concerns arise, call us right away. We’re committed to be with you every step of the way.

How much is buccal fat removal in Miami?

On the surface, cheek fat reduction surgery is the same for men and women. All candidates receive incisions in the same places, and everyone has some or all of their buccal pads removed in order to achieve the desired thinning effect. However, men have thicker skin and often require a more aggressive amount of removal for results to be seen.

In about three weeks, most of the initial discomfort, swelling and bruising will go away. However, it may take several months before you get a complete idea of the results.

As with any surgical procedure, risks exist. However, their likelihood is slim. They include infection, excessive bleeding, reactions to anesthesia, hematoma, fluid accumulation, damage to salivary glands and facial nerve damage. It is also possible that your final appearance might be more hollow-cheeked or gaunt than you wanted. This underscores the importance of working with a highly competent and experienced professional such as the surgeons at Boutinic.

Yes. The fat pads cannot grow back.

Although the procedure only specifically addresses the fat in your lower cheeks, removal of the buccal pads leads to an overall more sculpted and contoured appearance with defined cheekbones and jawline.

For the right candidate, this procedure can alleviate a childish or baby-faced countenance and promote a more distinguished impression.

Because the fat pads continue to grow into our twenties, it is best to wait until at least age 25 to have your cheek pads removed or diminished. On the other end of the spectrum, it is more your overall health than your chronological age that should determine whether you have this cosmetic surgery. Regardless of your chronological age, talk to your surgeon about your entire health history and medications to determine whether chubby cheek surgery is right for you.

Yes. It is frequently done along with Botox, facelift and other cosmetic procedures.

The acute swelling, bruising and discomfort associated with your Buccal fat removal surgery will diminish over the first week, although you can expect some swelling to persist for up to four months.
