Bichectomy abroad

What does Bichectomy consist of?

WHAT IS BICHECTOMY?

To know what Bichectomy consists of, we first have to know what the Bichat Bag is. Bichet Bag is an anatomical structure located in the middle and lower region of the face and it has great contour relevance in the cheeks. Thanks to a French anatomist and pathologist Marie Francois Xavier Bichat, it was shown that Bichat Bag was not a gland but a bag of fat that is located under the cheeks, which made it possible to remove the said bag of fat, thereby favoring the appearance of the face. This technique is called Bichetomy.

Bichetomy has become increasingly popular among celebrities. Among the models and actresses who have undergone this cosmetic surgery, we find some popular names such as Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, Mila Kunis, Angelina Jolie, and Victoria Beckham. All of them have obtained an amazing change thanks to this surgery.

HOW IS THE BICHECTOMY PERFORMED?

It is a surgical intervention where the Bichat bags are removed. As they are accumulations of fat that give volume to the face and not glands, it is completely safe to carry out this intervention.

During the operation, cuts are made on the inside of the cheeks that can last approximately 40 minutes, so that the same day, the patient would be at home recovering. As the cuts are made on the inside of the cheeks, there are no visible scars on the face.

Candidates for this treatment are those who seek to improve the appearance of their faces, especially those who have a round face shape.

Those people who present enormous facial flaccidity, advanced age, or people who present other contraindications will not be able to undergo this operation. That is why it is advisable to go to a specialist who will assess whether or not the person is suitable to undergo a Bichectomy.

Since the mouth is very prone to bacteria, very careful monitoring is required to see that everything is progressing correctly. To help the mouth recover in an ideal way, it is advisable to adhere to the following recommendations:

After the surgery, the surgeon will place a compression bandage for a few hours. Ice may be placed on the cheeks to help reduce swelling.

Some medications such as anti-inflammatories or antibiotics may be prescribed in order to mitigate the pain once the effects of anesthesia wear off.

The first night, the patient should sleep with their head raised and apply cold compresses for the first week.

The diet indicated by the surgeon must be followed strictly in order to avoid possible problems. If everything progresses correctly, after a few days, the patient will be able to eat soft foods.

In the event of any alarming symptom, such as the swelling not going down or the face being very red, it is advisable to go to the doctor for a check-up.

Implants abroad

Infected dental implant

Many of our patients are confused about whether their dental implants abroad are infected or have been rejected by their bodies. When a qualified professional such as those who make up the Asensio Advanced Dentistry team places a quality dental implant, the risk of some type of infection is practically very low; however, there could be minimal complications. Although very unusual (its risk barely reaches 2%), under certain circumstances, immediate medical attention will be required.

Symptoms of implant infection

Some of the symptoms of a failed implant can be confused with the more typical post-operative discomforts, although the main difference to identify if there is an infection will come from the duration of the symptoms. These symptoms should not last more than 7 days, with the patient beginning to notice improvements from the third day onwards.

When rejection of the dental implant occurs, we mainly notice the following symptoms:

– Redness of the gums in the implant area

– Inflammatory pockets around the implant

– Bleeding and suppuration

– Pain around the implant and in the intervened area

– Bacterial plaque around the dental implant

– In more advanced cases, mobility of the dental implant occurs

It must be borne in mind that during the first week, it is totally normal for redness and even accumulation of bacterial plaque to occur. For this reason, you will be summoned for a review where it will be verified how the treatment is progressing.

After dental implant surgery, it will be necessary to wait for 3 to 4 months to allow the affected area to heal completely before placing the permanent prosthesis or crown.

FIXED ORTHODONTICS

Orthodontics is a technique that consists of moving the teeth and/or the jawbones in a controlled manner to certain positions in order to solve problems of malpositioned teeth or jaws.

 

At Asensio Odontología Avanzada, best place for dental tourism, we carry out all kinds of treatments to achieve improvements in your health and dental aesthetics. There are several types of orthodontics, including removable and fixed.

What is fixed orthodontics?

This type of orthodontics has the peculiarity that it cannot be removed by the patient, as is the case with removable orthodontics, such as Invisalign invisible splints. Commonly known as brackets, these are metal pieces attached to the teeth to maintain the arch that is responsible for moving the teeth.

Moreover, there are fixed orthodontics made of ceramic material to achieve the tone of the tooth itself. When placed on the teeth, the brackets are hardly visible, providing an exquisite and differentiated aesthetic from conventional treatment.

How long does orthodontic treatment last?

In general, the orthodontic treatment varies from 6 to 8 months in the simplest cases and up to 24 to 30 months in the most complicated cases.

The duration of the treatment will depend on many factors that must be taken into account, such as the problem to be treated, the type of appliance, how the appliance is cared for, the speed at which the teeth move …

Benefits of fixed orthodontics

Treating this dental displacement in time helps correct malocclusions, prevent pain in the temporomandibular joint, slow down tooth wear, and solve chewing problems.

Invisalign is one of the invisible orthodontic treatments that we stand out for due to the comfort and the positive experiences of each of our patients. With this treatment, the teeth are progressively displaced until a correct position is achieved. It is made up of invisible splints that adapt to your mouth to get your teeth aligned without the need to use the notorious and annoying “metal braces”.

During the treatment, different aligners of varying shapes are placed at precise locations to be able to progressively guide the teeth to their new locations. The duration of each aligner will be approximately two weeks.

Our patients are assured that the results of these invisible orthodontics are noticeable from the first weeks and that nobody around will notice them wearing it, since it is transparent. It is also very comfortable and practical since the splints are removable and you can take it off to eat without any problem, or to go to an act or event and then … Put it back on!
