PLASTIC SURGEON ALBERTO AREVALO / FACIAL SURGERY
PLASTIC SURGEON ALBERTO AREVALO / BICHECTOMY
This procedure consists of removing a compartment or pocket of fatty tissue, which is located in the middle portion of the cheeks. This compartment is present in all human beings and is more evident in some, giving a rounded appearance to the face. It is not necessarily associated with overweight, although it does give the impression that the person has “a few extra pounds”, that the face is “fuller”.
Cheek reduction surgery can be performed at any age, over 18 years old.
It is strictly outpatient and is usually performed under local anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation.

The procedure is performed through a small cut or incision inside the mouth, in the middle portion of the cheek, where we remove the fatty compartment that prevents proper definition of facial angles.
The disability is minimal and usually involves swelling of the cheeks, as would occur with any dental extraction. This swelling can last from 3 days to a week. During the first days, the local application of cold can significantly reduce the swelling.
It is not a surgery that is associated with the presence of hematomas, as occurs with other facial surgeries, and it is minimally painful.
As in other surgeries, the final results, to evaluate the benefits of the procedure, can be appreciated from the 4th week after the surgery.
