Cheek thinning aesthetics is also known as “bichectomy” and “Hollywood cheek”. It is an aesthetic procedure that accentuates the cheekbones and makes the face appear thinner and sharper. It can be performed under local or general anesthesia according to the joint preference of the person and the doctor. Thanks to a small incision in the mouth, nearly 40% of the fat tissue in that area is taken out.
After the adolescence period is over and the facial features are settled, anyone who has thick facial features due to the fat in the cheek areas can easily have this procedure done.
The process is a simple one that takes half an hour. There may be partial pain and swelling after the procedure, but these pains can be very small compared to other surgeries.
The patients are discharged on the same day. The person can continue his normal life the next day.
The result of the procedure can be fully seen after 15 days to 1 month.
