Buccal Fat Removal

As we know, the facial form is one of the most important criteria of beauty and attractiveness. For this reason, the golden ratio of the jaw, the cheeks and other features on the face is popular. One of the most important criteria in the golden ratio is that the jaw and cheeks form a triangle which we call the V-shape With this shape, the face looks younger, more attractive and aesthetic.

The Hollywood Cheek is the triangulation procedure on the face where the face contour is angular, and the fat pads on the cheek are high. In the US, where most Hollywood stars are from, very satisfactory results have been obtained with this. The name of the procedure in the US is bichectomy.

The Hollywood Cheek operation is based on the principle of removing excess fat pads from the cheek with an incision of only 1 cm from the cheek area inside of the mouth without leaving any scars on the face. It can be performed under local anesthesia, but it is preferable to do it under general anesthesia, and it takes about 30 minutes. It is an extremely simple and comfortable operation to have. The experience of the plastic surgeon is critical in this simple operation. Determining the amount of fat to be removed according to the person’s face, the personalized formation of the jaw/cheek triangle postoperatively and the fact that the sutures in the mouth after the operation are factors that do not disturb the patient and provide a good, proportionate result.
