It is a minimally invasive surgical technique that allows the extraction of the “Bichat Balls”, glands of adipose fatty tissue that are located on the cheeks, just below the cheekbones.

These glands do not fulfill any specific function in adults, but rather provide volume throughout the area, giving rise to a more rounded face, depending on the shape and facial contour of each person.

Through this surgical intervention, the excess volume on both cheeks is eliminated and a thinner, more streamlined face and more defined cheekbones are obtained.

This is an outpatient surgery, which means you do not need to spend the night in the hospital. The duration of the surgery in this case is approximately 45 minutes.

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
