In aesthetic surgery, excess fat in the cheeks can be reduced by using the bichectomy technique. Cheek fat removal is a minimally invasive technique. Bichectomy is performed inside the mouth without leaving any marks on the cheek.
What is Bichectomy (Cheek Fat Removal)?
The facial area may become very oily over time due to aging or weight gain. The contour of the face can be reshaped by removing excess fat on the cheek with fat removal from the cheek (bichectomy). It is a technique used in aesthetic surgery as facial rejuvenation and facial thinning aesthetic procedures.
There are buccal fat pads in the natural structure of the cheeks. As the person ages, these fat pads become denser, and a chubby cheek appearance appears. It is an area of fat that is very difficult to lose after it accumulates. Bichectomy (Cheek Fat Removal) procedure targets these buccal fat pads.
How Is Bishectomy Performed?
The targeted area with bichectomy is the buccal fat pad in the cheek, and small incisions are made from the inside of the mouth. Afterward, the excessive fat accumulation on the cheeks is removed. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is performed under general anesthesia or conscious sedation, i.e., local anesthesia.
What is the Recovery Process of Bichectomy Operation?
The healing processes vary according to the technique applied in bichectomy (fat removal from the cheek) and the patient’s general skin structure. It may take several weeks for the final results of the bichectomy operation to appear.
The results of the bichectomy procedure are permanent. For this reason, very good, comprehensive research should be done before deciding on the operation, and detailed information about the whole process should be asked from the plastic surgeon.

Things to Consider in Bichectomy Procedure
For the healing process to pass faster, it is necessary to reduce cigarette and alcohol consumption for at least one week and, if possible, to zero before bichectomy. Drugs with blood-thinning properties such as aspirin should not be consumed before the operation.
