What is a bichectomy?

Bichectomy or cheek reduction surgery involves removing fat from the cheeks to define the cheekbones and improve facial appearance. With bichectomy, cheeks acquire a brighter and more beautiful appearance.

During bichectomy surgery, fat is removed from the mouth and the wide cheek appearance of the person is improved. After this procedure, patients see that their cheekbones become prominent and have a more beautiful appearance in a short time.

This surgery is mostly applied to people who do not lose the fat on their cheeks after weight loss surgery, but those who have excess fat on their cheeks can also benefit from the surgery.

Who are the best candidates for bichectomy?

If you want to know if you are a suitable candidate for bichectomy surgery, check if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are uncomfortable with the appearance of full cheeks

  • Your body mass index is normal

  • You are away from smoking, drinking

If you meet all these criteria, you can apply for bichectomy surgery. Afterwards, your doctor will first find out if you meet the other criteria for surgery at the time of consultation.

Bichectomy procedure

When compared with other aesthetic surgery options, we can say that bichectomy is a very simple procedure. Before the procedure, your surgeon will recommend that you stop using some of the medications you are using. These medications often contain blood thinners such as aspirin. Smoking and alcohol use is also one of the habits that you should stop before surgery.

When it's time for the procedure, the nurses will prepare you for the surgery and the surgery will begin.

  • The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, with or without sedation, in an outpatient setting.

  • The surgeon starts by making small incisions on the inside of the cheeks, usually near the back molars.

  • Through these incisions, the surgeon carefully removes a portion of the buccal fat pads.

  • The amount of fat removed depends on the patient's desired outcome and the surgeon's assessment.

  • Once the fat is removed, the incisions are closed using dissolvable sutures.

  • The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete.

  • After the surgery, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses.

Bichectomy risks and side effects

As in any surgery, there are risks and side effects in bichectomy surgery, albeit small.
