Cheek correction or Bichectomy 

The face becomes thinner from the cheekbones to the jawline. There are cheek fat pads in the middle face. If these fat pads are larger than normal, the sharp and attractive appearance of the face is disrupted. These fat pads can be extracted with minor surgery. Thus, a more aesthetic appearance can be obtained. 

Who can undergo bichectomy surgery?

Anyone over the age of 18 can have this surgery if it is appropriate.

How Bichectomy Surgery Is Performed?

The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia. The cheek fat pad is accessed by entering through a small incision on the buccal mucosa from the mouth. It aims at obtaining the desired appearance by removing the desired amount of fatty tissue.

Will there be scars after surgery?

  • There will be no scars because the surgery is performed from the mouth.

Operation process

The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia. The operation time is about 30 minutes. If local anesthesia is applied, you can be discharged on the same day. If general anesthesia is used, patients usually stay in the hospital for a day after surgery. They are fired the next day.
