The fat bags of bichat are fat pads located in the lower part of the cheeks, these can give the appearance of a rounded face in some people, the surgery consists of extracting them through a small incision on the inside of the cheek.
Some people have a rounded face as a result of being overweight, while others have a genetic predisposition and inherited this characteristic. Bichectomy is the elimination of this fat and it can be an option for people who want to reduce the size of their cheeks and highlight the cheekbones. The result of the surgery is a slimmer facial appearance, with more defined cheeks.
The procedure is performed from inside of the mouth and does not result in visible scars on the face. Dr. Chopra will strategically remove the correct amount of the buccal fat pad to enhance the patient’s youthful contours and overall facial shape.
It generally takes about 7 to 10 days for the tissues inside the mouth to dissolve following buccal fat pad removal. As such, a patient may need to maintain a soft or semi-liquid diet in the first few days after surgery.

amazing surgeon and injector. He gets your Botox done fast and it’s always perfect
After meeting with Dr. Chopra, I was mesmerized and comforted by his amazing personality and his stellar knowledge in the cosmetic industry. He performed a breast augmentation on my sister, and did an amazing job! Working with him from pre op to post op has been a breeze. Dr. Chopra is impressive, knowledgeable, and knows how to care for people. I have never met a Doctor that is so down to earth, honest and friendly. Don’t walk, RUN to Chantilly Cosmetic Surgery. They offer state of the art laser technology to maximize results for your skin needs as well! Thank you Dr. Chopra for all of your support and big thanks to the amazing results you have been providing me and my family.
This office is such a gem! I had gotten done a C02 treatment on my face and I could not be happier! Dr. Chopra and his staff were very thorough and checked in on me! My results are incredible! I had a lot of deep wrinkles and sun damage on my face. I will continue to come to this office for all of my cosmetic needs! Rana is awesome at explaining things to you before you met the doctor. We needed Dr. Chopra in this area ! No other doc like him!
Dr. Chopra is an amazing doctor and surgeon!! He has great bed side manner and makes you feel comfortable in the decision process. His staff is also amazing. I had a breast augmentation with him and I wouldn’t have chosen another surgeon. I have worked in plastics for years now, and I can speak from experience it’s not always the case you get an amazing staff, surgeon and surgery!!
I was reluctant for my wife to get a tummy tuck, but after 6 kids and lots of working out, she needed more than exercise alone to achieve the look she wanted. The lead up and coordination with Michelle was very comforting and informative. The office was welcoming, professional, and clean. The collaboration with Dr. Chopra was very engaging and personalized. After receiving her tummy tuck, I would expect most doctors to move on to the next patient. Dr. Chopra was so committed to her results and a positive experience and he routinely followed up to inquire about and address any questions or concerns – far beyond a level I would ever expect. Can’t say more good about his commitment and would highly recommend him to anyone.
Friendly and professional staff. Had a tummy tuck and Dr. Chopra did an amazing job!! Even though its only been a day since surgery, I can already see the results
Beautiful office with the most patient, kind staff. Dr. Chopra really takes care to ensure his patient’s feel comfortable and have all of their concerns addressed. His work is outstanding (just go look at their instagram!)
I recently had Botox and microneedling done by Doctor V and I couldn’t be happier with the results! The entire team was professional, caring, and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. Dr. Chopra took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions, putting me at ease. The results were exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I highly recommend Dr. Chopra to anyone considering plastic surgery. Five stars all around!
I have received Dysport and CoolPeel with Echotone from Dr. Chopra. The staff is exceedingly friendly and accommodating. The doctor is very knowledgeable and put me at ease for my treatments. My results are nothing less than amazing! I would highly recommend Dr. Chopra and his staff for any aesthetic and cosmetic surgery needs.
Dr. V and his team at Chantilly Cosmetic Surgery have been wonderfully taking care of me for nearly six months now. Dr. V has been working with me to treat my acne scars, and recommended a custom approach using laser resurfacing, micro-needling and a new skin care routine. Michelle and Dr. V have been incredibly supportive the entire time, always made sure I was comfortable throughout the process and explained everything to me in great detail every step of the way. I never felt any discomfort during my procedures and always leave the office feeling satisfied with my visit.I recommend him to all my friends and family looking for aesthetic work, and will definitely keep coming back to him in the future!
The team at Chantilly Cosmetic Surgery is truly one of a kind. They are welcoming, professional, and great at what they do! Ruksar was incredibly friendly and helpful over the phone and Michelle and Dr. V listened to all my concerns intently and without judgement. Dr. V is talented and precise in his work and I would absolutely recommend him as an injector/surgeon!
Dr. Chopra is great and attentive. He cares about doing the best for patients. I would recommend him!
Being my first ever consultation for a cosmetic procedure, I was very nervous. I was immediately less nervous when I was greeted by Michelle at the front desk. The entire team was incredibly kind and understanding with my list of questions. I was able to complete my Lip Flip procedure the same day. I am looking forward to going back!
I have had two procedures here and both have been absolutely amazing. All of the staff here are so friendly, warm and welcome. The surgeon is so talented and does a perfect job every time. I had a liquid rhinoplasty and chin lipo. Both have been life changing for me! The quality of care you receive is outstanding too. Love this place!
Dr. V and his staff are welcoming and make you feel like you are at home! Ruksar was such a welcoming secretary. I look forward to seeing her every time I walk in. Dr. V ensures that all of his patients are taken care of and their concerns are addressed. 10/10 recommend coming here for any procedures. He is very knowledgeable!
Dr. V is incredible. I’ve been a patient for over a year and am so happy with all of my treatments. His team is wonderful and caring. I constantly rave about how great he is and have referred several friends who are all so pleased with their results! If you’re looking for an amazing injector/surgeon, Dr. V is the person you should see!
Dr. V and his team are so caring! They are welcoming and have a cozy environment. He takes his time with his consults and ensures that every patient’s needs are addressed. His work is precise and he does an amazing job on all of his procedures. 10/10 recommend coming here for the best work and experience!
Dr. V is simply one of the best plastic surgeons that I have had treatments with in the DMV. Even though I’m afraid of needles, Michelle made me feel completely at ease and the doctor was very thorough, knowledgeable, and kind.
I had a session of microneedling done here last week. The experience was wonderful and Michelle made me feel comfortable and at ease. she explained everything in detail prior to the procedure. The office was Beautiful, clean, and extremely professional. Highly recommend!
My experience is was incredible for my breast augmentation. From my first consultation to the procedure and post-op has been phenomenal. I was nervous at first and wasn’t sure about sizing, but Michelle and Dr. V were so helpful and patient with me. I not only love my results, but Dr. Chopra and his team are some of the greatest people and I feel they truly care about me and how I like my results. Highly recommend!
Beyond satisfied and impressed! Lip filler is the absolute perfect size! Dr. Vinod Chopra & Gabby makes the experience enjoyable and comfortable. Thank you!
I really love it here. I’ve come to Dr. Chopra now for multiple injections (Botox/Dysport, Filler) all over my face, including nose and jaw. Not only are the results good, but the experience is a treat in itself.Between Michelle the nurse and Gabby at the front desk—or Dr. Chopra himself—all the staff are very accommodating. When they say they just want me to be happy I really believe it. It’s that kind of atmosphere.I’ve been to other plastic surgeons’ offices where it feels like the level of care is commensurate with how much money I’m spending, and they just want me in and out. My experience here has been the opposite; I’ve never felt pressured for my time or my money. Bedside manner is taken seriously here, and it shows. Whenever I’m getting injected, Michelle (the nurse) would give me her hand or a toy to squeeze, in addition to icing or massaging my neck to distract me from any discomfort. It really makes a big difference and it just feels good to be taken care of. It makes simple cosmetic procedures like this feel like a meaningful experience.Another cool thing: During my last follow-up visit, Dr. Chopra generously offered me a complementary vial of hyaluronic acid filler to touch up nose/liquid rhinoplasty. (Mind you this was after multiple visits, so maybe don’t go asking for freebies first thing :] ).They also have great financing options through Cherry or CareCredit so I’ve just been doing interest-free payments lately.Definitely check them out!
My experience with Dr. “V” Chopra was wonderful. Dr. V was kind, comforting and knowledgeable. He was answered all my questions pertaining to the different types of filler, the procedure, and aftercare.His patience and understanding of my concerns and questions won me over! He walked me through the whole process before and during the procedure. His results speaks for him.I’m nothing short of elated with my results. I definitely will be returning and would highly recommend him to my friends and family.
I have received injectables and cool sculpting treatments from Dr V practice. I have been extremely satisfied so far with the services received with fantastic results. Dr V and his staff are truly professional. I have always had a great experience on my visits. I look forward seeing Dr V in the future for the services they provide.
I only have incredible things to say about Dr. Vinod Chopra and Chantilly Cosmetic Surgery! Upon arriving at their practice I was greeted by the Office Coordinator who was kind and accommodating while I waited for my appointment. I was very interested in Coolsculpting as well as attaining some more information on how I could attain a more refreshed and youthful appearance. The Coolsculpting specialist, Michelle, was incredibly detailed and thorough during the consultation – ensuring to provide me all the information I needed as well as making sure all my questions were answered. Once all my questions were answered regarding my Coolsculpting consult I met with Dr. Chopra to discuss non-invasive options to achieve my aesthetic goal. Again, Michelle was an incredible back bone to this part of the consultation as she assisted Dr. Chopra throughout the appointment. I had a very inclusive experience and have no doubt in my mind that I have found my Mecca to all things beauty. I am excited to maintain my journey with Dr. Chopra and Michelle. I couldn’t be more content and comfortable with my decision of choosing Chantilly Cosmetic Surgery and recommend to everyone who is in search of an honest & innovative surgeon. You will never be disappointed.
The care and professionalism I received from Dr. V and his staff has been exceptional. Dr. V and Michelle are attentive and demonstrate excellent bedside manners. The clinic is beautifully designed and the atmosphere made me feel tranquil. Dr. V’s consults/appointments are direct and to the point, but he is more than happy to answer any questions or review any concerns you have. With his around the clock care, service, and staff’s ability to clearly communicate pre-op and post-op details including the procedures, medications, and recovery – made me feel extremely comfortable and cared for at every step.
Visiting Chantilly Cosmetics was a great experience! The office/patient rooms were gorgeous and clean. The staff was very nice! Michelle was helpful and personable! Dr. Chopra was so helpful, knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable!
I have been visiting Dr. V since 2020 and he have been doing amazing job into my Botox & Filler. Clean facilities, calming atmosphere and friendly staff always makes me feel comfortable during each visit. My Botox have been last longer then pervious clinic.i am glad i found Dr.V and Highly recommend everyone Dr.V for Botox & Fillers!!
I recently had breast augmentation done by Dr. Chopra and they were very nice and worked with me the entire time. Informative every step of the way. Their dates were not very flexible when it came to scheduling surgery but everything else was excellent! I recommend!
The dr. was very patient with me as I was very nervous. The Xeomen injections were surprisingly painless and the results look sooo good. I’m going to do more services with this place.
Beautiful office, friendly staff and great ambiance. Maddie talked me while I was getting my filler and made me feel super comforted! Amazing results!!
Dr. Chopra is a compassionate and detail oriented surgeon. I give him my full endorsement.Do not hesitate to see him.
Always a great experience when I visit! Michelle, Maddie, and Dr. V are a great team and really take care of their clients.
Extremely professional environment. Extremely clean office and exam room, staff ensured all the necessary safety precautions. Dr. V and his team reviewed the procedure and expectations and answered all my questions. Overall a very positive experience.
i saw dr. V for my PDO brow lift and nonsurgical rhinoplasty – i didn’t want to feel like i spent money to look the same, but i didn’t want the results to look too “fake” or obvious either. now that i’m about a month out and everything is healed and settled, i can safely say that he knocked it out of the park! not only am i thrilled with the results of both procedures, but i felt that he listened to my concerns by breaking up appointments in order to properly build up to the desired end look. he managed my (very tolerable) pain, had a superior knowledge of aesthetics, and was very easy to talk to throughout the planning process. michelle, maddie, and the rest of his team were all amazing as well. i HIGHLY recommend chantilly cosmetic surgery and will be back!
Hands down best cosmetic surgery clinic in the DMV I had a great experience with them highly recommend this place to anyone interested in enhancing their appearance
I have known Dr Chopra for a good while now and the work he does and the attention to detail he takes is amazing! He has personally done my injections and I have been so happy from my own personal satisfaction but also the many compliments I have received from those in my life. I would recommend anyone looking for a little sprucing up to check him out and be sure to say hi to the wonderful staff he has with him too!
Dr. Chopra’s depth and breadth of knowledge put me at ease. He truly cares about his patients.
I came to see Dr. V for injectables and was blown away with my results. I did not have a single bruise or bump after my visit. The results are so natural that you can’t even tell I had anything done – I just look refreshed! Dr. V really took the time to listen to my concerns and meticulously studied my face like no other injector has before. I guess that’s the benefit of having a plastic surgeon administering injections!When it came time to inject, Dr. V worked swiftly and Michelle was incredibly attentive and iced before and after the injection sites which was something I hadn’t experienced before. I believe it definitely helped with the pain and any potential swelling.Although the location is a bit far for me, this place is the best kept secret in Chantilly and completely worth the drive.
I highly recommend this practice . It deserves more stars . Front desk Maddie was very attentive ! Michelle walks through the whole process and answers all your questions . Dr . Chopra was very knowledgeable and takes his time meeting your goals .
I went to see Dr. Chopra for some minor facial imperfections. He listened intently to my concerns and made conservative recommendations to address my needs. He explained the procedure thoroughly and was compassionate in his approach. His staff was professional and attentive, especially his nurse Michelle. I highly recommend.
Dr. Chopra offers so many great services! I have had lip, jawline, undereye filler, and Botox performed by him at his practice. He & his medical assistant, Michelle display the utmost professionalism ,while making you feel at ease during your appointment. I am over the moon with my results!
Dr. Vinod is amazing! I received micro-needling from him, and it turned out great! He takes the time to listen to what you desire and the outcome is exactly what you want. I’ve received many services from Dr. V including Botox, fillers, and PRP injections. He always exceeds expectations! His staff is always welcoming and very attentive, I couldn’t imagine going to anyone else. Best plastic surgeon in the DMV area!
I am *very* particular on the choosing the best aesthetic providers and have visited many in the area. Dr. Chopra is meticulous in his work and truly listens to the patients … highly recommended!!
Super professional, caring, and takes the time to explain everything in detail and leave you worry free!
