Bichectomy | Dr. Mehmet Öztan


Bichectomy, also known as buccal lipectomy or buccal fat pad reduction, is a surgical procedure to remove the fat pads in the cheeks. This procedure is often performed for aesthetic purposes, aiming to create a slimmer and more contoured appearance of the cheeks.

Bichectomy is commonly chosen by individuals with a round or chubby face shape. It can be performed when there is excessive growth of the fat pads in the cheeks or when the cheeks appear puffy due to genetic factors.

Bichectomy procedure is typically done under local or general anesthesia. The surgeon makes a small incision inside the mouth and removes the buccal fat pads. The procedure is usually quick, and patients are often discharged on the same day. The recovery process may take a few weeks, and temporary side effects such as swelling or bruising can be expected.

Bichectomy can be an option for individuals who want to reshape the cheek area or achieve a slimmer facial appearance. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, so it is important to consult with a plastic surgeon. The surgeon can determine the most appropriate treatment method based on the individual's needs and desires.
