Bichectomy (Cheek Aesthetics)

What is a bichectomy?

There is a tissue called Bichat (Bichat) fat pads that provide shaping and contouring in the deep plan on our face. This tissue may be excessive in people with a plump appearance on the face. Removal of this tissue by surgery is called "Bichectomy".

Who Is Bichectomy Performed?

Bichectomy surgery is a facial thinning surgery for individuals who want to thin the facial area and achieve more defined facial features. It is usually performed to reduce the large fat pads in the cheeks, making the lower part of the face thinner and sharper contours. Bichectomy offers an aesthetic improvement by giving the face a more oval or V-shaped appearance. Bichectomy surgery can be performed on adults who are in good general health and desire to have distinct facial features. However, since the results of this surgery are permanent, it is important for patients to have a detailed evaluation with their doctor before surgery and to clearly express their expectations.

How is Bichectomy Surgery (Hollywood Cheek) Performed?

Bichectomy surgery, or Hollywood cheek, is a popular procedure in the field of cheek aesthetics and aims to make the lower part of the face more slender and sharply contoured. This surgery is performed under local anaesthesia and takes about one hour. During the operation, the surgeon makes a small incision through the mouth and reaches the large fat pads in the cheeks. Then, some of these fat pads are carefully removed. This procedure makes the lower part of the face look thinner and makes the cheek bones more prominent. After the surgery, patients can return to their normal activities on the same day. Bichectomy is an effective method preferred to improve the overall aesthetics of the face and create sharper facial contours.
