Bichectomy – Cheek thinning – Cheek Fat Removal
Cheek Thinning - Cheek Fat Removal
In this operation, which has become very popular in recent years, a part of the fat pads on the cheek is removed in a controlled manner. The aim is to slim the cheek, highlight the cheekbones and create an esthetic dimple on the cheek. It can be planned with local anesthesia alone or combined with rhinoplasty under general anesthesia. It is performed with incisions averaging one centimeter in length in the mouth at cheek level and takes an average of 30 minutes. Dissolvable stitches are used inside the mouth.
