Certainly, the face will have a profound effect on the image that each person has of himself/herself. It is important for us all to look beautiful and perfect. One of the important factors in this regard is the dimensions and angles of our face. Some people's face is resistant to weight loss and usually does not change much. This can be very annoying at times. These people, despite having a fit body, have a too full, even chubby face. Buccal fat removal through lipectomy surgery can help resolve this problem. Also, if one wants to have more defined cheeks and more prominent facial features, he or she can benefit from buccal fat extraction. In general, a lipectomy or a bichectomy can enhance the youth of your face and showcase its beauty. The surgery is performed by a facial plastic surgeon. This beauty procedure can even be combined with a facelift or other facial rejuvenation methods to achieve a better result.
The surgeon takes the patient's medical history and examines the patient's general health. He/she also takes photos of the face and examines it. Before surgery, the patient should refrain from taking certain medications, including aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements. If the patient has a weight loss plan, the surgeon recommends that this be done before surgery. The patient should not eat or drink for more than 12 hours before surgery. Smoking should also be quitted from a few weeks before a bichectomy to a few weeks after that.
