Cheek Fat Removal (Bichectomy)

The operation is performed under local anesthesia or sometimes sedation and takes about 30 minutes. The fat that gives fullness to the cheek is reached with the incision made inside the mouth without leaving a trace outside, and the fat pad is removed. The patient is discharged on the same day. The patient is fed with a soft diet for 3-4 days and uses mouthwash. There is no need to remove the stitches. Facial and jowl liposuction can also be performed simultaneously if the face is too plump.
