If you are thinking of undergoing this aesthetic procedure, we tell you some aspects to evaluate before making a final decision according to some experts: 1. Am I the best candidate? Specialists such as the Esthetic Clinics recommend it if you are a thin person, but with a round face. It is even highly requested by this type of women and men with round faces because they seek to highlight the cheekbones more. 2. It is a flash surgery Keep in mind that this procedure to remove the Bichat bags is something simple. You undergo local anesthesia while the professional doctor makes an intraoral incision that does not exceed 0.39 inches, that is, 1 cm. In this process it will take from 30 to 45 minutes maximum.3. How long does it take to recover? After the surgery is done, you take the recovery time at home. The specialists of the Maxil Arte clinic comment that during the first postoperative days it is totally normal for the volume of your cheeks to increase and there are discomforts in this area. After 15 or 21 days, your face is completely deflated and in three months you will notice the final result. It is also recommended to increase your fluid intake 24 hours after the operation and avoid exercising during the first two weeks after the procedure. 4. Your advantagesAs indicated by Dr. Aguilar, the great advantage is that the results are definitive, even if you gain or lose weight, it is not necessary to repeat the surgery, since the bags were removed and the fat deposits do not appear again. 5. Recommendations to follow For the sake of your health, ALWAYS look for a certified surgeon, who before entering the operating room will explain the procedure to which you will undergo, the risks that exist and the results that you expect. In the event of not doing so, you run the risk of suffering from sequelae such as bruises, infections or postoperative abscesses. In severe cases improper practice can trigger facial nerve paralysis or facial asymmetry. Look how beautiful Eiza González looks after his bichectomy:
