Cheek Fat Removal (Bichectomy)



Cheek Fat Removal (Bichectomy)

Nowadays, expectations are increasing with the rapid progress of aesthetic surgery. While the concept of "beauty" was sufficient until yesterday, "charm" is additionally desired now. A strong chin, slanting eyes, full lips, prominent cheekbones and the underlying shadow are the keys to an attractive face. One of the applications to obtain this attractive "inverted triangular face" image is the cheek fat removal (bichectomy) procedure.

Cheek Fat Removal (Bichectomy)

The operation is performed under local anesthesia or sometimes sedation and takes about 30 minutes. The fat that gives fullness to the cheek is reached with the incision made inside the mouth without leaving a trace outside, and the fat pad is removed. The patient is discharged on the same day. The patient is fed with a soft diet for 3-4 days and uses mouthwash. There is no need to remove the stitches. Facial and jowl liposuction can also be performed simultaneously if the face is too plump.
