A person's facial features play an important role in social recognition and acceptance. All kinds of tissues and organs on the face are the areas where we will make a direct first impression. Bichectomy surgery makes people's faces more attractive.
People's perceptions of beauty are associated with the golden ratio. The golden ratio is a value that expresses the ratio of each organ in the face to the others. If a person's face has the golden ratio or is close, it is perceived by the human eye as an attractive face. The most important factor that determines the golden ratio is, in the simplest terms, the triangular shape of the chin and cheeks. Thanks to this ratio, the face looks young, beautiful, attractive and aesthetic.
Cheek aesthetics, aiming to reach the golden ratio, is also applied to faces where the contour of the face is square and the fat tissue on the cheek is excessive. Very successful results are obtained with the operation applied in cheek aesthetics. Bichectomy Surgery (cheek aesthetics) is the process of removing excess fat tissue 1 cm from the cheek area by intervening inside the mouth without leaving any traces on the face.
Why is Bichectomy Surgery Done?
Bichectomy Surgery (cheek aesthetic) operation is preferred not only by women, but also by men. Different operation planning suitable for facial structures is required for male and female patients. This operation can be used to address the following aesthetic concerns:
- Indeterminate and small cheekbones
- Square or round face appearance caused by excess fat tissue in the cheek area
Very successful results are obtained in cheek aesthetic surgery, especially in young women. The cheeks of individuals in their 20s and 30s may droop due to their genetic inheritance, and their cheeks may appear round due to the fat layer. These people look much older than they are, and they also have to live with a tired-looking face. Fat tissues next to the cheeks show that the person is worn out by emotions such as stress and fatigue. To remove these expressions from the face shape, cheek aesthetics is performed. Cheek aesthetic operation is preferred not only by women but also by men. Separate operation planning and application are required for male and female patients.
How is Bichectomy Surgery Done?
Cheek aesthetic surgery is an easy surgical procedure that is usually performed under local anesthesia or sedation and takes a short time. It is a fairly simple procedure for an experienced surgeon. After the cheek aesthetic operation, the personal preparation of the cheek triangle and the determination of the shape of the face depend on the experience of the doctor. Cheek fat removal, which is one of the methods applied in cheek aesthetics, is suitable for people with excess fat tissue. It is not recommended to remove the fat on the cheeks before the age of 25, but the genetic characteristics of the individual are also decisive in this process. For example, if the parents' cheeks are full, it is possible that the child will need cheek aesthetics.
After cheek aesthetic surgery, the cheeks do not collapse, only the fat tissue decreases and they have a flatter and more attractive appearance. During the operation, a special point is determined in the mouth and the fat mass is removed from that point. Since the adipose tissue is taken from the mouth, it is recommended to use antibiotics after the operation in order to prevent possible infections. At least ten days before the cheek aesthetic surgery, the use of blood thinners such as aspirin should be suspended.
Healing After Bichectomy Surgery
After the cheek aesthetic procedure, there will be small stitches in the mouth. Therefore, liquid foods should be preferred on the first day after the operation. From the second day onwards, you can continue to feed with normal foods. Mouthwash should be used for at least three days after cheek aesthetic surgery. It is necessary to keep the sutures in the mouth as sterile as possible by mouthwash. Since the stitches are usually soft tissue, pain is not felt; So much so that some patients forget that they have stitches in their mouths. After the cheek aesthetic surgery, the stitches will dissolve on their own in a short time. It is normal for some edema and swelling to occur around the operation area, which lasts 2-3 weeks after cheek aesthetics. Ice packs and dressings will help keep swelling and edema to a minimum. Most of the patients can return to their social lives immediately after the operation. The clear results of the operation will appear in three weeks.
Risks of Bichectomy Surgery and Things to Be Considered
Cheek aesthetics is considered a relatively safe plastic surgery procedure. However, as with all surgical procedures, there are risks. Possible complications include infection and bleeding. Infection problems that may occur after surgery can usually be treated with antibiotics. Chewing, smiling, or yawning can be relatively uncomfortable until the cheeks heal.
