Cheek bone reduction
Cheekbone reduction will make the face look smaller and more feminine. An oval or heart-shaped face is very desirable amongst Asian women.
In zygomatic (cheekbone) reduction, both ends are cut and the intervening bone segment (zygomatic bone) is moved inward, backward and downward. So, cheek prominence is depressed and the patient can get small, shallow face and smoother, smarter impression. The procedure is performed through an incision inside the ear in front of the ear canal, and from inside of the mouth, thus leaving no visible scars. This is then secured by stainless steel wires. The cheekbone heals very rapidly. In a week’s time, it will be firm and stable.
