Permanence After Bichectomy: Is a Reversal Possible?

Bichectomy is an aesthetic procedure that has become popular, especially among people who want to slim their facial features and reduce the fullness in the chin area. However, some questions may arise after this type of surgery. One of the most common questions is whether it is possible to undo or change the procedure after bichectomy. In this article, we will answer these questions by providing information about the bichectomy procedure and post-permanence.

What is a Bichectomy?

Bichectomy is the surgical removal of the sebaceous glands or Bichat fat pads in the cheek area. This procedure aims to make facial contours sharper and thinner. Through small incisions made under the cheeks, the Bichat fat pads are removed and the face gains a more attractive appearance as a result.

Permanence After Bichectomy

The results of bichectomy surgery are usually permanent. Because the removed sebaceous glands do not come back. However, general fat accumulation in the body, aging or weight changes can affect facial contours. Unwanted changes may occur on the face after bichectomy.

Return or Revision After Bichectomy

If unsatisfactory results or unwanted changes occur after bichectomy, revision surgery may be possible in some cases. Revision surgery can be performed to correct the previous procedure or to eliminate unwanted results. However, success cannot be guaranteed in all cases of revision surgery.

Things to Consider After Bichectomy

Instead of determining whether it is possible to undo or change the procedure after bichectomy, it is more important to carefully evaluate the procedure beforehand. Before deciding on a bichectomy procedure, you should discuss your wishes and expectations in detail with your surgeon. It is important to develop a realistic understanding of permanence and possible outcomes after the procedure. Although it is possible to reverse or modify the procedure after a bichectomy, every surgical intervention carries risks and success cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, careful evaluation and communication prior to bichectomy or other aesthetic procedures is important. An experienced plastic surgeon, such as Dr Emre Özenalp, can give you the best advice and guide you through the pre- and post-procedure process.
