What to Know About
Bichectomy surgery is the process of removing the fat tissue on the cheeks. Bichectomy aims to thin the cheeks. When the cheeks are thinner, the cheekbones and chin come to the fore. Bichectomy, also known as “cheek aesthetics”, accentuates the facial lines and provides a sharp appearance. In this process, which is also called the youth triangle, an inverted triangle appearance is created between the cheekbones and the chin. Bichectomy is a permanent procedure. Even if too much weight is gained, the former cheek appearance does not reappear. It is recommended by physicians as it is a permanent procedure.
Bichectomy surgery is performed by thinning the buccal adipose tissue in the cheeks. The surgical incisions are 1 cm long. Since the incision is made through the mouth (intraoral), no incision marks are formed on the skin surface. The process is completed in about half an hour.
Other aesthetic operations can be performed together with bichectomy surgery. If general anesthesia is deemed appropriate for simultaneous surgeries, bichectomy can also be performed under general anesthesia. If cheek thinning is applied alone, local anesthesia is sufficient.
Anyone over the age of 18 can have cheek thinning surgery. If the patient examined by the physician does not have a condition that prevents bichectomy surgery, surgery can be performed. Being physically healthy, having a healthy body weight, and having a round face are sufficient for bichectomy surgery.
Bichectomy surgery is recommended for people who are not satisfied with their facial lines. People with round faces may want to give their faces a sharper and more defined expression. People whose face does not thin despite losing weight can have a bichectomy. In the bichectomy operation targeting the golden ratio, both cheeks are designed to be symmetrical. Bichectomy can also be performed on people with symmetry problems between the two cheeks.
Patient and physician communication is important before bichectomy surgery. Patients should explain their expectations and wishes regarding the outcome of the surgery to the physician in detail. At this stage, the patient should inform his doctor about his current diseases and the drugs he uses, if any. The patient’s face is examined during the physical examination and a photograph is taken. If the physician does not detect a situation that prevents the operation, the operation can be planned.
The patient should not use alcohol or cigarettes before the operation. Since the operation is performed by making an incision through the mouth, the operation should be performed with full oral hygiene. Good oral hygiene prevents the risk of complications that may occur.
The patient is discharged on the same day after the bichectomy operation. The patient can return to daily life immediately after the operation. Since bichectomy surgery is performed by making an incision through the mouth, it is necessary to pay attention to oral hygiene after the operation. Teeth should be brushed regularly and mouthwash products should be used. If your doctor recommends medication, it should be used regularly. Pressure bandages and cold applications should be applied as recommended by the doctor. Cold pressures heal swelling and edema in a short time.
It is necessary to avoid very heavy exercise for the first few weeks after the surgery. Nutrition after bichectomy surgery should be as recommended by the physician and dietitian. It is necessary to consume liquid and soft foods for a while after the procedure. During this period, the patient should not chew very hard foods. Alcohol and cigarette consumption should be stopped during the recovery period. If the doctor’s recommendations are followed after bichectomy surgery, the patient will recover in a short time.
Bichectomy surgery prices may vary depending on the patient’s expectations. If the patient wants to have other surgical operations together with the bichectomy, the prices vary. Operations such as Vaser liposuction, rhinoplasty, and jawline can be preferred together with bichectomy.
