Bichectomy, which can also be defined as buccal fat removal surgery, is a type of aesthetic procedure performed by removing fat pad from cheeks to give a sharp look to the facial contours. Thanks to bichectomy, the chin and cheekbones are highlighted and facial contours are made more obvious. The out-of-proportion appearance in the facial contours is eliminated thanks to bichectomy procedure, with the aim of obtaining a face shape with an inverted triangle appearance between the cheekbones and the chin also known as the triangle of youth. Facial lines are sharpened with the bichectomy operation performed to obtain the golden ratio. In this way, the patient gets a more aesthetic, attractive and young appearance.
How does bichectomy performed?
In a bichectomy surgery, main aim is to make the cheeks thinner by extracting excess fat in order to highlight the cheekbones and provide an inverted triangle look on the face. It is mostly preferred by those who have genetically facial assymetry or those who who cannot achieve the lean look no matter how much weight they lost. It is easy to remove excess fat tissue from the inner side of the cheeks and highlight the jawline. This is why this procedure is also called
A small incision is made under local anesthesia in order to remove the fat tissue from the inside of the mouth. The fat tissue is reached and then the predetermined part of this tissue is removed from the cheek. The same procedure is then applied to the other cheek. At this point, it is extremely important to put both cheeks into a symmetrical aspect. After the operation, the incisions are sutured up.
After a bichectomy procedure
It is not necessary to stay in the hospital after bichecomy. After a short rest, the patient can be discharged. Depending on the operation, antibiotics may be recommended to prevent the incision in the mouth from becoming infected. It is also important to pay good attention to the oral hygiene in order to have a proper healing process after bichectomy surgery. Brushing teeth and gargling regularly helps with the healing faster. After the procedure for a certain period of time that your doctor recommends, you should avoid eating hard food. The incisions made inside the mouth heal in one week but still it is very normal to have swelling for 2 to 3 weeks. It is helpful to apply cold compress in order to keep the swelling at a minimum level. During the healing process smoking and drinking alcohol is not recommended.
