Cheekbone surgery, Malarplasty
| Cheek Surgery, Bichectomy
Bichectomy and Malarplasty
Cheek plastic surgery is technically known as malarplasty. It encompasses in a single name different types of cheek surgery that can be performed to improve the profile of the face.
Cheek plastic surgery is known as Bichectomy. It is a very simple operation, very fast and gives great results.
This page is a summary of all the techniques we can offer you at Clínica Sanza, in Barcelona. From here you can access the page that explains each one in detail and expand the information.
Bichectomy - Balls of
Bichat balls are little balls of fat that we have in each cheek and have no use. These are the ones that give most of the volume in the cheeks and can be easily removed. Removal produces surprising changes in facial symmetry, reducing the volume of the cheeks and giving greater definition to the cheekbones and jawline.
Cheek augmentation with prosthesis
It consists of placing a prosthesis in the area of the cheekbones or malar bones, whose material does not cause an immunological reaction and integrates with the tissues in a natural way.
Once in place , the result is forever, it is never lost and the profile of the face is very stylized.
Cheek augmentation with biocompatible substances
It consists of filling the cheekbone area with temporary substances, such as hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite.
They are infiltrated with injections, do not require surgery and are performed in the same office. They are absolutely biocompatible, they do not produce any type of rejection or subsequent problems in the patient’s body.
Cheekbone augmentation with own fat, cheekbone lipofilling
The patient’s own fat is extracted by means of a mini-liposuction. Subsequently, the fat is processed and then infiltrated into the area to be filled, improving volume problems with a natural appearance and rapid recovery.
Perfiloplasty consists of surgically correcting the features that condition the profile of the face: nose, chin and cheekbones. Thus, rhinoplasty, mentoplasty, malarplasty or frontoplasty can be combined and performed at the same time.
Extraction of biopolymers, silicone and other substances
They were withdrawn from the market more than 20 years ago, as they caused a new disease called “iatrogenic allogenosis”.
This operation is performed by very few plastic surgeons in Spain. Patients come to us from all over the world because they cannot find an experienced center to come to. We have been removing biopolymers from our patients’ bodies for more than 30 years.
