What is Buccal Fat Removal or Bichectomy?
Buccal Fat Removal, also known as a bichectomy or a Hollywood Cheek Procedure, is the permanent removal of fat pads in the cheeks. The result is a more sculpted facial appearance for those who desire more prominent cheekbones and less facial roundness.
About Your Bichectomy Consultation
Your free and private consultation at our Miami cosmetic surgery practice is your opportunity to ask questions and receive answers to all of your concerns. Your cosmetic surgeon will review your medical history, ask about medications that you take (including supplements, since some of which can contribute to excess bleeding), and provide a complete fee schedule for your convenience, as well as sharing information about financing if you want to budget your Buccal Fat Pad Removal.
Are you an out-of-town patient? We can do a video consultation for free to give you the estimate for your procedure. We have out-of-town patient coordinators that can help you with all travel arrangements to come to Miami for your cosmetic surgery.
Candidates for Bichectomy or Buccal Fat Removal
Individuals with full faces or chubby cheeks may be a candidate for a bichectomy. If you have a thin, narrow face, you are not an ideal candidate for a bichectomy procedure. Buccal fat removal is permanent and may cause your face to appear gaunt or prematurely elderly, especially as you age. Candidates for any cosmetic surgery procedure should be healthy and have realistic expectations. Contact us today to schedule your consultation appointment at our Miami cosmetic surgery practice.

The Bichectomy Procedure
A bichectomy procedure with our Miami cosmetic surgery practice is quick and comparatively painless compared with other cosmetic surgery procedures. It’s performed under local anesthesia and the entire procedure typically takes about an hour. Through a small incision inside your cheeks, the fat pads are removed, leaving no visible scars.
Recovery from Buccal Fat Removal
As a Miami bichectomy patient, you will experience a few days of discomfort and swelling, which are addressed with over-the-counter pain medication, such as Tylenol, and ice packs as needed. It’s important to avoid hard foods such as chips, pretzels, and the like, we recommend eating bland foods and soups. Smoking is to be avoided for at least two weeks prior to and after your bichectomy procedure. You will be required to use a facial garment to reduce inflammation.
You will be scheduled for a post-op appointment to be sure that everything is going as planned. All your post-op appointments are included in the price of surgery. Of course, if you have any concerns, we encourage you to call our Miami cosmetic surgery office at 786-713-1588.
