Today, like celebrities in popular culture, it is possible to have much more elegant and noble facial features with bichectomy aesthetics, i.e. cheek fat removal surgery.
A more collapsed appearance on the cheek can be obtained with the operation (bichectomy) of removing the fat tissue located in the cheek area by incision made from the mouth. However, since the adipose tissue on the face will decrease spontaneously with the advancement of age, excessive collapse and an aged appearance may occur if it is not performed with the correct indication.
With the bichectomy operation, round, wide cheeks are thinned and the face is given sharper lines. Thus, it is ensured that the person has a complete difference in facial aesthetics.
Surgery can have positive effects on both men and women. In men, it helps to remove the puffiness of the cheeks and makes the person look weaker, fitter and healthier. In women, on the other hand, having straight or slightly sunken cheeks has a much greater effect. When cheek fat is removed, it helps female patients gain a more adult, in their own words, “sexier appearance”.
The total duration of this surgery varies between 10-20 minutes. The reason why the operation takes such a short time is to easily access the Bichat fat pad from the inside of the cheek. It takes 5-6 minutes in total to remove the fat pad and put 2-3 stitches on the inside of the cheek. There is no bleeding or bruising on the cheeks. At the end of the surgery, a bandage on the cheeks is applied to prevent edema from settling in place of the fat removed. The bandage should be kept for 2 days. The close circle of female patients who have undergone this surgery may think that the patient has weakened, has a facelift or has had cheekbone fillings. In fact, it is only a 20-minute surgery.
