What is bichatectomy?
Bichat bags or balls are two well-defined accumulations of fatty tissue, located in the thickness of each cheek, immediately below the cheekbones and in direct relation to the buccinator muscle. They do not have any specific function except to give volume to the area, and may have very different sizes depending on the characteristics of each individual. In childhood, these fatty accumulations are generally of greater volume, giving the facial contour the typical rounded and filled oval of the face of a baby or child.
Over the years, this fatty tissue normally begins to slowly decrease in size. However, this decrease in volume is not the same in all people.
Generally in people who have a more rounded facial contour, prominent cheeks and poorly defined cheekbones, these Bichat Bags or Balls have not atrophied, turning out to be much larger than desired. It is for this group of patients that Bichectomy represents a good alternative that manages to counteract this annoying phenomenon.
