What is Cheek Thinning Aesthetics (Bichectomy)?

Cheek thinning aesthetics, also called bichectomy, is a surgical procedure to reshape our cheeks. The beauty of the face should be evaluated as a whole and we want all organs and structures on our face to be in harmony with each other. The perception that the person is fat may occur as a result of the face gradually becoming rounder due to aging and the retention of fat in that area. Even if the person is weak, he cannot remove the roundness of his face. Weight loss diets may not work. Therefore, it is not preferable to have a round face. Surgery is a permanent procedure and it is very rare for it to return to its original state. Since the surgery is done through the mouth, there is no such thing as scarring. Nowadays, it has become more and more popular to have a more triangular face and flatter cheeks. In recent years, it has started to be preferred by men too. It is also known as the "Hollywood Cheek" because it was first made by celebrities in Hollywood. A significant percentage of rejuvenation is provided.

How is Cheek Thinning Aesthetics Performed?

This operation is performed by making a small incision under the cheeks by intervening inside the mouth. As a result of this incision, a certain part of the accumulated fat and muscles in the area is removed. This surgery, which does not require stitches, is mostly performed under local anesthesia. Generally, a self-extinguishing or dissolving suture system is used. This operation takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes. You will not feel pain and suffering during and after the surgery.

What Should Be Done Before Surgery?

Smoking and alcohol should not be consumed for at least 1 week before the surgery, and this should also include the postoperative period. In this way, recovery is faster. Aspirin and drugs with blood thinning properties should not be taken before surgery.

If you are wondering if you are a suitable candidate, you should share your medical history with your doctor before the operation. With his interest and experience in facial aesthetics, Op. Dr. Erdi Özdemir will give you more detailed information. It will determine if you are a suitable candidate.
