Bichectomia - Bolas de Bichat

Bichat’s fat pad extraction (Bichectomy)

Bichat pads are the largest proportion of cheek volume in children. With time and growth of the rest of facial structures, the bichat fat pads decrease in size. However, in some cases, the volume does not reduce and provides a rounded facial contour. By eliminating the Bichat fat pads there is a considerable change in the facial symmetry, reducing the cheeks and providing a better cheek bone and mandibular definition.

Extracción de biopolímeros y silicona

Extraction of silicone, biopolymers or other body materials

Silicone or biopolymers is a permanent filler that has been widely used to augment lips, cheekbones, facial wrinkles including buttocks, legs and arms. About 20 years ago they were withdrawn from the market because it was observed that, over time, they caused more or less serious problems of: displacement, rejection, pain, inflammation and even more serious problems of necrosis and embolisms. This has created a new disease called “Iatrogenic Allogenosis”.
