What is Bichectomy (Cheek Reduction) Surgery?
Bichectomy, or cheek reduction surgery, is a procedure designed to eliminate surplus fat from the cheeks, enhancing the prominence of the cheekbones and overall facial aesthetics. This surgical technique, often favored by Hollywood icons, is commonly referred to as the Hollywood Cheek Procedure.
To Whom Is Bichectomy Surgery Applied?

Before the operation, the person should stop smoking 14 days before the surgery. If the person does not have a problem by having some tests done before the operation, the date and process of the operation are determined. Before the surgery, the person is told to stop taking blood thinners.
Cheek Reduction Operation
Bichectomy is an operation performed under local anesthesia. Bichectomy should be performed by a specialist physician in a hospital setting. The surgery takes approximately one hour. During bichectomy surgery, an incision is made from the inside of the mouth, excess fat is removed and the incision is closed again. For this reason, there is no visible seam scar.
After the operation, the patient is discharged on the same day. The patient should pay attention to oral hygiene and should not consume solid foods for the first 3 days after surgery. Postoperative edema disappears in about 3 weeks.
