Cheek Fat Removal

Bichectomy, that is, cheek fat removal operation, is the process of giving a permanent shape to the cheek and cheek area. It is applied to people who are uncomfortable with swollen cheeks and want to maintain their physical beauty.

The surgery is performed under local and general anesthesia. Surgery is performed with an incision made at the level of the upper second molar in the inner lining of the cheek. The bucinator muscle is bluntly separated and delivered to the buccal fat pad. Then the fat pad is taken out and the required fat is taken.

The person may have swelling for a few days and is not visible from the outside. Dissolvable stitches are removed and the result will be evident within 3 months.

It is known that this process has been practiced since 1732. The operation gained popularity in the 1990s.
