With the bichectomy operation, fat is removed from the mouth in order to give the face a more attractive and proportionate appearance, and the plump and overweight appearance that bothers the patient is eliminated.
This facial aesthetic operation, also called Hollywood cheek because it is preferred by Hollywood stars, provides a youthful appearance by revealing the cheekbones and making the face look thinner.
In bichectomy, that is, cheek thinning aesthetics, with an incision of approximately 1 cm from the inside of the cheek, the fat in this area is reached and approximately 40-50% of it is removed.
This operation, which is very simple and painless, takes about 45 minutes. It can be done under local, sedation or general anesthesia. The patient is discharged within the same day. Liquid and warm foods should be consumed instead of solid foods for 2-3 days after the operation. The stitched areas usually heal within 1 week, but the edema after the surgery goes away in 2-3 weeks. If the person who has had a bichectomy gains weight again in the future, the fat accumulation in the cheek area will not be the same as before and it can be said that the triangular facial appearance formed after the surgery is permanent
