    Bichectomy Surgery (Cheek Aesthetic)

    What Is Bichectomy (Cheek Aesthetic) Surgery and Its Process?

    Bichectomy surgery, also known as cheek aesthetics, is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat from the cheek in order to enlarge the cheekbones and make facial contours more proportional.

    Fat is removed from the mouth to remove the full and chubby facial appearance that causes the patient discomfort in order to give the face a more attractive and proportionate appearance. Furthermore, by revealing the cheekbones and making a face appear thinner, this procedure, also known as the Hollywood cheek because Hollywood stars prefer it, provides a slim and youthful appearance.

    Bichectomy surgery removes fat from the cheeks, resulting in more prominent cheekbones, a sharper chin, and a slimmer, more shaped overall appearance.

    Experts are the best people to tell you whether a bichectomy is right for your face. As a result, as with all plastic surgery, we recommend that you consult with a specialist surgeon. If you want to have a bichectomy surgery in Turkey, please contact Esvita Clinic and request an online consultation.

    What Is the Purpose Of Bichectomy (Cheek Aesthetic)?

    Even if you are at your ideal weight, the shape of your face and cheeks can make you appear overweight. On the other hand, having large cheeks is not directly related to being overweight. Bichectomy can be performed on people who are thin or overweight. Bichectomy is used to thin out the cheeks, define the cheekbones and chin, and create a triangular face.

    Who Should Get a Bichectomy (Cheek Aesthetic)?

    People between the ages of 20 and 30 who have a genetically chubby, round or square face appearance, round and wide, saggy, and excessively fatty cheeks are candidates for bichectomy, or cheek aesthetic surgery. The Hollywood cheek bichectomy procedure gives patients a younger appearance and a slim and extremely attractive face with clear and aesthetic lines. However, before deciding on bichectomy, we strongly advise you to consult with a plastic surgeon. You can request a free online consultation with our clinic to see if you are a good candidate for bichectomy surgery.

    How Is Bichectomy (Cheek Aesthetic) Performed?

    To hasten recovery, patients are advised to abstain from alcohol and cigarettes one week before surgery. Furthermore, if aspirin or blood thinners are used, they should be under the supervision of a doctor before the procedure. Under local anesthesia, bichectomy aesthetic surgery, also known as cheek aesthetics, is performed. 

    After a local anesthetic is applied to the patient, tiny incisions on the inside of the cheek are made to remove excess fat on the cheek. To achieve a natural appearance, the fat tissue bags are removed with forceps. Stitches are applied to the affected area after the fat bags are removed. Both cheeks are treated at the end of the procedure. Following the bichectomy, which takes between 30 and 45 minutes, your doctor will apply a compressive bandage to complete the procedure. The patient is usually discharged the same day.

    Combining this surgery with other facial aesthetic operations, including rhinoplasty or lip augmentation, is possible. Each patient’s recovery phase after bichectomy surgery is different. However, when we look at the general healing process, it is observed that patients recover within 14 days after surgery. After the surgery, Esvita Clinic recommended to use mouthwash to clean the mouth thoroughly and avoid extremely hot meals. 

    Since there are very few stitches in the mouth after bichectomy surgery, it is best to eat liquids, especially on the first day. Patients should also avoid sun exposure during this procedure. The patient’s appearance will be as desired 2 to 4 months after the bichectomy surgery. At the end of this period, the cheeks become sunken and the face takes on a more triangular appearance.

    Does bichectomy leave a scar?
    Since the bichectomy surgery is performed with incisions made through the patient's mouth, there is no risk of a scar that can be noticed from the outside. Since dissolving sutures are used during the operation, there is no need to remove the sutures.
    Are the results of bichectomy permanent?
    Bichectomy surgery is a procedure performed by removing the fat tissue that is naturally present in the cheek. However, if the weight is maintained, the results are extremely permanent.
    How long does a bichectomy take?
    This operation, which is a very simple and painless procedure, takes about 45 minutes. It can be performed under local anesthesia, sedation or general anesthesia.
    Is there any difficulty in speaking after bichectomy?
    You will not have any difficulty speaking after bichectomy. You can quickly return to your daily life after the operation.
    Is bichectomy suitable for men?
    Although women mostly prefer this procedure, it is also applied to male patients. When performing cheek aesthetics on male patients, less fat is removed because the bone and fat structure is different.
