Extracción de grasa bucal

¿Qué es la Extracción de Grasa Bucal?

 La Extracción de Grasa Bucal, también llamada Bichectomía o Hollywood Cheek, es una Cirugía Estética Facial que tiene como objetivo hacer que los pómulos parezcan más prominentes y las líneas faciales más afiladas mediante la eliminación del tejido adiposo bucal en la zona de las mejillas. La extirpación de grasa bucal cambia las líneas faciales en forma de U a una forma de V más marcada. La eliminación de grasa bucal no deja marcas de puntos visibles y es permanente siempre que no se produzca un aumento excesivo de peso.

 

¿Por qué se realiza la eliminación de grasa bucal?

 La cirugía de eliminación de grasa bucal se realiza en pacientes que tienen un exceso de acumulación de grasa en las mejillas en relación con su estructura facial. El tejido graso oculta los rasgos faciales y da un aspecto más regordete a las mejillas del paciente, lo que puede dar una imagen errónea de sobrepeso.

 

Después de la cirugía de eliminación de grasa bucal, aparecen líneas nítidas en la cara del paciente en forma de triángulo invertido estéticamente agradable.

 

¿Cuáles son las condiciones para la eliminación de la grasa bucal?

 La Bichectomía, que también puede definirse como cirugía de adelgazamiento de las mejillas, puede aplicarse tanto a hombres como a mujeres. La Extracción de Grasa Bucal no se recomienda a los siguientes pacientes:

  • Los pacientes menores de 25 años, ya que los rasgos faciales de los pacientes más jóvenes pueden seguir cambiando hasta los 25 años.
  • Los pacientes que tienen un Índice de Masa Corporal, IMC, superior a 25, ya que los pacientes con sobrepeso u obesidad suelen estar insatisfechos con su aspecto después de perder peso.
  • Los fumadores, y las personas mayores de 45 años.
  • Los pacientes que tienen mejillas delgadas. La eliminación de grasa bucal es más adecuada para los pacientes con mejillas llenas, que pueden evitar los efectos adversos que podrían aparecer con la edad avanzada.
  • Los pacientes que no son adecuados para la anestesia general. Se revisa el historial médico del paciente y se realizan las pruebas diagnósticas preoperatorias adecuadas para evaluar la idoneidad.

 

¿Qué hay que tener en cuenta antes de la extracción de grasa bucal?

 Antes de la Cirugía, a los pacientes se les recomienda lo siguiente:

  • El paciente debe estar en el hospital un día antes de su intervención para que se le realicen las pruebas preoperatorias.
  • El paciente debe dejar de fumar, beber alcohol y consumir drogas recreativas un mes antes de la cirugía.
  • El paciente debe evitar medicamentos que contengan aspirina o ibuprofeno (Advil, Motrin IB, otros) durante dos semanas antes y después de la cirugía. Estos medicamentos pueden aumentar el riesgo de hemorragia interna. Los pacientes deben confirmar con su Coordinador de Pacientes cada medicamento y suplemento que deseen tomar.

 

¿Cómo se realiza la extracción de grasa bucal?

 La extracción de grasa bucal puede realizarse con anestesia general o local. Se realiza una incisión hacia la parte posterior de la cavidad bucal, cerca del segundo molar superior, en la boca. El músculo buccinador se hace entonces visible, sus fibras se separan, sin incisión, hasta que la Grasa Bucal es accesible. A continuación, se abre una fina cubierta sobre la grasa y se extrae suavemente mediante una suave presión aplicada desde el exterior. A continuación, se cauteriza la grasa en la base y se extrae. El resto de la almohadilla de grasa bucal se coloca de nuevo en su sitio anatómico y la mucosa oral, así como las incisiones, se suturan. Por término medio, el procedimiento dura unos 30 minutos.

 

¿Qué hay que tener en cuenta después de la extracción de grasa bucal?

A los pacientes se les recomienda lo siguiente:

  • No comer ni beber nada hasta tres horas después de la cirugía.
  • Prevenir la hinchazón de la boca aplicando compresas frías durante 15 minutos a intervalos regulares en los 3 primeros días después de la Extracción de Grasa Bucal.
  • Hacer gárgaras con agua salada cada 12 horas durante los primeros 7 días después de la cirugía ya que la cirugía se realiza dentro de la boca.
  • Evitar actividades físicas extenuantes.
  • Utilizar la medicación prescrita según las indicaciones del Cirujano Plástico.
  • Ponerse protector solar al salir al exterior durante las primeras semanas después de la cirugía, especialmente si la cirugía se realizó en verano.
  • Mantener una buena higiene dental para prevenir una infección ya que los puntos están dentro de la boca.
  • Esperar una semana a que baje la hinchazón y de 2 a 4 meses a que las mejillas alcancen su aspecto definitivo.

 

¿Cuáles son los riesgos de la eliminación de grasa bucal?

 Aunque la Extracción de Grasa Bucal es una cirugía Estética corta y sencilla, como cualquier cirugía mayor tiene algunos riesgos asociados. Los posibles riesgos de la cirugía de eliminación de grasa bucal incluyen, pero no se limitan a los siguientes:

  • Hemorragias
  • Trombosis venosa profunda, complicaciones cardíacas y pulmonares
  • Seroma
  • Hematoma
  • Infección
  • Lesión de un conducto salival
  • Lesión de ramas del nervio facial, que provoca debilidad temporal o permanente de los músculos faciales
  • Entumecimiento u otros cambios en la sensibilidad

Hinchazón prolongada

  • Resultado estético subóptimo y/o cambios mínimos
  • Riesgos asociados a la anestesia

Alan Price reviewed I Cannot Recommend Enough!

I recently underwent a gastric sleeve surgery with thebookingsurgeries.com on the 10th of June in Tekirdag, Istanbul, and I cannot express how satisfied I am with the entire experience. As a registered nurse with NHS experience, I approached this decision with a great deal of caution. I conducted extensive research, interviewed multiple doctors, and spoke to numerous representatives to ensure I was making the best choice for my health. My thorough vetting process paid off, as the care and service provided by thebookingsurgeries.com were absolutely outstanding. From the moment I arrived in Turkey, I felt well taken care of. The coordinator, Mike Smith, went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly and coped well with my inquisitive annoying ways before choosing my provider. The translators on site – Ellie, Stella, Martin, and Oscar – were exceptional. They were not only proficient in their translations but also incredibly friendly and helpful, making the entire process seamless and stress-free. The level of care I received at Yasam Hospital was exemplary. The pre-surgery checks and tests were thorough, with meticulous attention to detail in blood monitoring and other necessary evaluations. The nursing staff were phenomenal, demonstrating high levels of competence and compassion throughout my stay. Their dedication and professionalism were in my experience superior to, the standards I’ve experienced within the NHS. The surgery itself went without a hitch, and the post-operative care was equally impressive. The medical team ensured I was comfortable and well-informed at every stage of the recovery process. The comprehensive follow-up care and guidance provided have been instrumental in my smooth recovery. To add i am the most anxious person, never had a General Anaesthetic. They catered to my needs. If i could work for this company i would and will advocate that my loved ones and friends go here for any surgery needs! Having experienced such exceptional care and service, I wholeheartedly recommend bookingsurgeries.com to anyone considering a gastric sleeve surgery or any other medical procedure. The quality of care, attention to detail, and overall patient experience far exceeded my expectations. In fact, I would now choose this company over the NHS for such procedures. In conclusion, my experience with bookingsurgeries.com has been nothing short of extraordinary. The entire team, from the coordinators and translators to the nursing staff and surgeons, contributed to making this a positive and life-changing experience. I will continue to advocate for this company and recommend it to anyone seeking top-notch medical care abroad.

Un grand merci à Pierre,Oscar,Stella et Ellie. Vous allez beaucoup me manquer

Mags reviewed Excellent service with bookingsurgery.com

I used bookingsurgery.com for procedures at medistanbul with Dr Yalcin. From getting in contact to having the procedures the care has been second to none. The coordinators and interpreters have made everything seamless, many thanks to Lily, Morgan and Frank for all your help. The nursing staff are always at the end of the buzzer and the cleaners are popping in regularly with a smile and a mop. The food not so amazing but I didn’t come here for a gourmet experience! Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending this company.

I had a boob augmentation (implant under the muscle) this week at medistanbul with booking surgery and I arranged the booking with David a co-ordinater who was nothing short of brilliant and even came to see me post surgery to make sure things were all okay. Dr Yalcin did my surgery, post surgery care and took out my drains and was a lovely bloke who achieved everything I asked for and more. Lily - my interpreter helped me the whole time and even got me English tea and coffee into the hospital, she helped me with my payments and general healthcare. All of the nurses were so caring, considerate and made me feel comfortable. On my leaving day, I felt reassured and ready to leave. I will definitely be returning for more surgery in the future :)

Danielle selwood reviewed Incredible service 5☆ all the way!

FDL 360 & BREAST UPLIFT n IMPLANTS Op date 3rd June 2024 Under Dr Yalçin At Medistanbul Hospital Omg I honestly have so much to say! What a fantastic service from the moment I contacted them nearly a year ago. My coordinator was Deniz and nothing was to much. I was given all the information about surgeons, pictures of there plastic surgery work and the decision was mine. I chose Dr Yalçin🩺 Upon arrival in Istanbul Sunday 2nd June I was picked up and it all began. Loads of staff a lot of different faces and always an translators at all times. I meet Dr Yalçin Monday 8am he done his drawings in me and I went down about 8.30am. Pain was manageable, nurses would come when you buzzed. Dr visited very day to check on all my wounds. Honestly just so incredibly grateful to Dr Yalçin and his team, 20yrs I waited and you made all my dreams come true in 1 day. Plus he has the loveliest smile you will see in your day. I had a few peeks and the wounds and stitching look phenomenal. If only Dr Yalçin new how much is amazing work literally changes people's lives. Thank you so much ;-) Big shout out to Lily and the whole translators and Booking Surgery Team. Would 💯 recommend to anyone asking and i know where to come if I'm ever looking for something else in future (Maybe thigh n arms we will see)! Though my husband did say next time we come to Turkey 🇹🇷 it's for a holiday😜 Take Care All Danielle Selwood

Jo Davis reviewed Breast uplift with implant…

I had a breast uplift with implant through BookingSurgery.Com on 3rd June 2024, and my partner had dental work done by them too whilst we were there. My partner and I used this company through personal recommendation from someone he knew who had used them for weight loss surgery and then for plastics/reconstructive surgery after. After hearing "horror stories" about surgeries abroad, it was important to get it right. I initially contacted BookingSurgery.Com through their website and a coordinator named Robert Campbell followed up my enquiry through WhatsApp message. After discussion about breast augmentation, Robert consulted with the surgery team and came back to me with a recommendations and quote from two surgeons. The recommendation was breast uplift with implant. I was very happy that the quote included transfers from airport to hospital, the surgery and medications, three meals a day for myself and a companion and their overnight stay too. To secure the price I only had to pay a £100 deposit and the outstanding balance didn't need to be paid until my surgery date. Robert asked me when I'd like to come for my surgery, I gave him an ideal date and he secured it. Robert was a brilliant coordinator, very polite and responded to my queries in good time, liaised with the surgeon and informed me accordingly at all times. When it came to the time for us to come to Turkey, the person who met us off the plane (Gurçan) was very friendly, helpful and a good driver. The cab had WiFi we could connect to which was great. (We also had the same driver who took us back to the airport for our return flight.) We arrived at the hospital and were met by a very happy, welcoming friendly translator called Stella who showed us to our room and explained what would happen next (as you have your pre-op on the day of arrival.) The consent form was very transparent on the surgery I was receiving, what to expect and any risks associated with the procedure which meant I could make an informed choice. The hospital we were at was called Yasam and the rooms, corridors etc were very clean and nice. The nurses were friendly and the care received was of a high quality. The cleaners were friendly and polite too. We had our own bathroom and smart tv and were comfortable. My partner's coordinator, Nora, arranged affordable transfers using the BookingSurgery.Com drivers to take him to the dental hospital in the city where he had his prep work and crowns fitted. The following day was surgery day and I met with my surgeon (Dr Nebil) and the anaesthetist. Dr Nebil really listened to what I was hoping to achieve and very informative. Before going down for surgery, the nurse gave me a sedative as general procedure. I was very happy with the results of my surgery and glad that I followed Dr Nebil's advice of implant with the uplift. His work is amazing! The nurses looked after me very well and the Dr visits you every single day to check on your progress and to answer any questions. There's always a translator on site which makes communication no issue. Pain relief and medications are all included in the care during hospital and when you go home. You receive an information pack to go home with which gives you very detailed advice on how to care for yourself following surgery including when you can resume normal activities such as driving, exercise, sunbathing etc. There are fit to fly letters, medication list with instructions on how to use, all tests taken prior to surgery, and after with the results, and a detailed write up on the surgery process, what was performed and how. I have photocopies of the boxes that my implants came in with serial numbers, details etc, and also contact info for a post op coordinator should there be any issues or if my recovery isn't as explained in the letter. This is very reassuring that BookingSurgery.Com are still looking after me once home. There were 4 translators in the hospital who were all helpful but I want to give a special mention to Stella and Oscar who I felt were more like friends. I met some lovely people on my ward who were all with BookingSurgery.Com for various procedures and having them to talk with definitely helped in terms of company and what to expect in regards of recovery etc. Before leaving Yasam hospital, I was very happy that I was able to have a photo taken with my Dr and translators, and am so happy that I chose to use BookingSurgery.Com
