It is the facial plastic surgery procedure by which the so-called Bichat Bags are extracted, which are fat pockets located in the cheeks. They received this name, in homage to the surname of the Surgeon who was their discoverer. Bichectomy will allow you to improve the profile of your face, giving it to sharper look. Best of all, the Bichat Bags do not tend to regenerate, so this surgery becomes a permanent treatment and the marks of the surgery will not be visible, as they will hide inside the oral cavity, leaving no exterior paw print.
