What is Bichectomy?

Bichectomy, more colloquially known as “Hollywood Cheek”, is the surgical procedure intended to turn round lines of the face into sharper lines by removing the excess fat from the cheek area with a noninvasive operation. With this procedure, it is also possible to eliminate asymmetries on the face to a considerable extent.

What Does Bichectomy Provide?

The charm of the starry world of Hollywood has always aroused interest. Bichectomy, also called Hollywood cheek, which become more popular with each passing day in Turkey, is essentially a cheek reduction procedure. The procedure is intended to provide a more attractive appearance by removing the fat pads in the inner part of the cheeks, reducing the cheeks, and accentuating the cheekbones.

What is the Operation Process of Bichectomy?

During the procedure that takes 30 minutes on average under general anesthesia, an incision of about 1 cm length is made inside the mouth. With the help of this incision, some portion of the fat pad tissues called buccal fat pad or Bichat's fat pad are removed from the cheeks. After the procedure, the cheek structure looks less rounded, while the cheekbones and jaw line look more prominent.

After the completion of the postoperative recovery period, it is also possible to transform the face into an inverted triangle, that is, “V” form if necessary, with the support of filling and Botox procedures. You can achieve a long-lasting change with this procedure, where the primary aim is to provide an unexaggerated appearance that is closer to natural.
