Experts in bichat ball removal

Bichat balls are fatty pockets that are located just below the orbital rim to give volume to the soft parts of the face. These fatty pockets are what give the face its characteristic shape, concealing the bony support underneath.

In some people, the marked presence of these bags gives the facial structure a rounded, unsightly appearance. To solve this problem, these balls can be removed, which will give the rounded facial structure a more elongated and aesthetically pleasing shape. The procedure is very simple and is performed under local anaesthesia on an outpatient basis through the inside of the mouth, leaving no visible scars. It is a quick and painless procedure that takes no more than 30 minutes.

Bichat Balls Removal or Bichectomy

No. It is a very simple technique, performed on an outpatient basis through the mouth. A small internal incision is made on both sides of the mouth to extract the fatty bags. There is hardly any swelling or bruising in the postoperative period.

The risk is minimal as this surgery is minimally invasive. The most important thing in this intervention is to make a correct indication, this technique should not be used in people who do not have a clearly rounded face shape as in these cases it can produce an unsatisfactory result by leaving an excessively sharp face.

Yes, in general, multiple facial surgeries can be combined, as long as they are minor procedures and do not interfere with the postoperative period. This combination should always be discussed with the surgeon on an individual basis.
