Without additional requirement, this should be a counter example:
To solve the additional requirement, we will need the following gadget (which incidentally is another counter example without the additional requirement) :
Let $G$ be a planar graph with only hexagonal faces. For each edge of your $G$, follow the path made by taking the opposite edge of the face. You end up with a collection of cycles.
Take a face where there is distinct cycles passing through. Replace this face by the gadget, by matching the outer face of the gadget.
Lets $u-v-w$ be two consecutive edges crossed by different cycles. Match $u-v-w$ with $13-15-8$. It is relatively easy to see that the two corresponding cycles will be one in the resulting graph. (We need to check the cases where two or three different cycles pass through the face). Moreover, this gadget will not add any new cycle, so the number of cycles obtained in the resulting graph will be strictly lower. Repeat the addition of gadgets until there is only one cycle left.
