Everything about Buccal Fat Removal

Thanks to bichectomy in Turkey, it is now possible to have thinner lines on your face.

Thick and plump lips, a thin face, an upright nose, a small jaw are effective in the overall beauty of a face. The percentage of each facial structure and the aesthetic harmony of the face with these percentage values are expressed as the Golden Ratio. If a person has a face with this golden ratio, it can be said that he/she has an aesthetically perfect face.

Bichectomy is an operation to extract the excess fats in the cheeks which is known as one of the most aesthetically important areas of our face and to fix possible deformations. This cheek fat can cause a person to look more overweight than he/she actually is. Especially for women, cheeks with a lot of adipose tissue can look full and attractive at a young age, but as the individual ages, this tissue starts to sag and loses its attractiveness.
