Cheek surgery | Bichat’s fat pad | Bichectomy
English subtitled video
Bichat balls are a small ball of fat that we have in each cheek and are of no use. A simple plastic surgery operation called Bichectomy, which we perform at Clínica Sanza in Barcelona, allows us to remove these balls of fat to considerably slim down the appearance of the cheeks.
Bichat pads are the largest proportion of cheek volume in children. With time and growth of the rest of facial structures, these 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.
WHERE DO WE OPERATE?
At Clínica Sanza we rely on the Sagrat Cor Hospital, part of the Quirónsalud group, to perform our surgical procedures.
Its prestige, facilities, medical and healthcare staff, as well as its technology are a guarantee.
