What is Hollywood cheek, or bichectomy as it is called in medicine, an aesthetic practice that has recently become quite popular among people, especially famous names? How is it done? What are the risks? Here are all the details about Hollywood cheek aesthetics in Turkey.


Hollywood cheek, a cheek aesthetic, is procedure performed in cases where the facial contour is excessive in the corner and cheek area and is based on the removal of adipose tissue. first, this aesthetic operation, which is preferred by Hollywood stars in the United States, is extremely satisfying in terms of its results and qualifies as an aesthetic operation with a high satisfaction rate.


In ancient aesthetic methods, cheekbone prosthetics or fillers were used to make the cheek lines obvious. With this method, the face was unlikely to be thinned, even on the contrary, sometimes exaggerated and rough appearance could be encountered. However, unlike the old methods in the Hollywood cheek process, the cheekbone is not evident. The new method in Antalya and Istanbul hospitals used in Hollywood Cheek can achieve the desired image in a completely region-oriented, controlled way.
