What is Cheek Aesthetics (Bichectomy)?
The face is the first place that catches our attention when we face a person. The forehead, mouth, cheeks, lips, eye color and hair serve the beauty of the face as an integral part of the face, although they are not examined separately at first.
Face and Golden Ratio
The beauty criteria of people are actually related to the proportional organ distribution and the percentage of available tissue. For example, thick and full lips, slightly upright nose and full cheeks are proportional to the total face, eyebrows are curved and the chin is small. The golden ratio can be expressed as the percentage of each organ and the aesthetic harmony of the face with these values. If the person has a golden face, the face looks young, attractive and aesthetically pleasing. The Hollywood cheek aesthetics are based on the golden ratio, different cheekbones and thin chin area.
What is Bichectomy – Hollywood aesthetics?
Bichectomy procedure is frequently used for triangular face operation, Hollywood cheek aesthetics, also known as V-face operation, square contoured faces and faces containing excessive amounts of fat. The procedure for Hollywood cheek aesthetics gives successful results. Bichectomy and Hollywood cheek aesthetics are actually the popular names of the operation. This process is the removal of excess fat pads located 1 cm away from the cheek area in the mouth without leaving a visible scar.

Cheek Aesthetic Surgery
Cheek aesthetic surgery is a very easy surgery that is completed in thirty minutes under local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the patient's preference and general condition. Overall, the surgeon's experience in this area is very important. Remodeling of the jaw to the desired shape depends on personal preparation of the cheek triangle prior to the operation. The patient's age, jaw and cheekbone dimensions form the basis of the amount of fat to be collected.
Cheek aesthetic and age
It is not recommended to remove cheek fat before the age of 20/25. Unless there is an extreme case, not removing the fat before the age of 20 is good to prevent future problems. Since the thickness of the fat layers at this age starts to decrease in the following years, therefore we recommend that patients be at a certain age. The patient's genetic characteristics are also important for this procedure.
After Bichectomy Surgery
There will be small sutures in the mouth after cheek aesthetics. For this reason, liquid nutrition should be preferred on the first day after surgery. Normal foods can be consumed late in the day. Oral rinsing should be done during the first three days following the cheek aesthetic surgery, because the sutures in the mouth should be kept as sterile as possible. Since some of the stitches have a soft tissue, the patients do not feel pain and sometimes the stitches in the mouth dissolve within a few days following the cheek aesthetic surgery. Therefore, the mild sensitivity felt on the cheek disappears within days. After most of the operations, people return to their social lives in a short time. There is a visible change 3 months after the operation.
