Partial removal of fat bags
Bichectomy is the partial removal of fat bags called Bichat. Before this procedure is performed, the patient should be evaluated in detail. Over time, there is a significant decrease in bichat adipose tissue, but in some people these fat bags continue to exist at a high rate. This causes aesthetic problems. Removing the excess fat tissues on the face at the right rate should be done by a specialist physician. Otherwise, it may cause premature aging on the face of the person who will undergo this operation.
Bichectomy is a type of operation performed by the surgeon by making a small incision on the inside of the cheeks, next to the fat bags. After local anesthesia is applied to the patient, the surgeon makes a small incision in the cheek and partially removes the bichat (fat tissue) bags with forceps to give a natural appearance. After the fat bags are removed, dissolvable stitches are applied to the wound. After this procedure is applied to both cheeks, that is, when the operation is completed, the surgeon completes the procedure with a compressive bandage. The entire bichectomy operation takes between 30 and 45 minutes and the patient is discharged on the same day.
