Cheeks reduction. Bichat fat pad removal

20 years ago the standards of female beauty changed completely, and it became fashionable to be slim and thin. If you wish, you may keep a diet and do physical exercises to become slim and fit. But, if you are in a good health, it is impossible to make your cheekbones look pronounced as though you are a Vogue model because it is something that you might only have on genetic level given by nature. At the same time, a woman with delicate features is considered not only beautiful but somewhat aristocratic. Modern plastic surgery makes it easy to get desired appearance. There is a variety of ways to remove fat from cheeks nowadays.

What are Bichat fat pads?

Bichat fat pads are inner cheek parts consisting of fat tissue. They are named after the famous French anatomist Marie-François-Xavier Bichat, who first described them. Bichat fat pads are located between the two muscles: gum muscle and cheek muscle. Their function is to make the sucking process easier for infants. And thus they are useless for adults.
