The reason why the face looks plump and round is due to the facial fats. For some people, this is due to putting on weight while for others it is completely structural. A round face can be seen not only in overweight people but also in thin people. The surgery performed to obtain an inverted triangular face is bichectomy, that is, cheek thinning aesthetics. With a single surgery, the cheekbones become more prominent and the cheeks become thinner. The chubby image on the face goes away and a more attractive appearance is obtained.
Is anesthesia required for surgery? How long does the procedure take?
It is an easy surgery that can be applied under local anesthesia. It takes approximately 30-45 minutes. 30-40% of the cheek fat is removed by entering through 1cm incisions formed through the cheek, and the thinning of the cheeks is immediately seen after the operation.
Will there be swelling after surgery? When can I see an effective result?
As with any surgery, swelling occurs after bichectomy. You will start to see an effective result as of the 3rd week, as there will be edema for about 2-3 weeks.
Is this surgery suitable for everyone?
Bichectomy operation is preferred for people with a round face. If it is applied to someone with a small amount of cheek fat tissue and an oval face, with aging an unwanted appearance may occur. Because there will be some loss of fat tissue in older ages anyway and if there isn’t enough support tissue in the cheek, the person looks older and has a collapsed face.
