Information on treatment and surgery

Cheek Bone Reduction Surgery

Cheek bone reduction surgery aims to improve a rough and masculine image projected through protruding cheek bones. Precise excision and relocation is key in creating a soft and three-dimensional contour line. Reduction through grinding has shown limitations in aesthetics, creating unnatural contour lines, hence the surgical method of fracturing the cheekbones and relocating is preferred.

As each patient’s cheekbone structure and thickness is different, it is critical to carry out a comprehensive examination for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. This will also ensure minimal chances of side effects such as saggy cheeks once the bones are fixated, creating a small, soft and natural line around the cheekbones from all angles. At Zeah Dental Hospital, proficient surgeons can offer various surgical methods, tailored to each patient, to ensure satisfactory aesthetic improvements.

Cheekbone reduction surgery is a complex surgical procedure that requires extensive knowledge and skills to avoid side effects.

There are constant new surgical methods to reduce prominent cheekbones. These methods however, may not be suitable for everyone, hence it is important to carefully choose the most appropriate surgical method according to the diagnosis. A well-experienced medical team with sufficient knowledge in facial anatomy is critical in providing a satisfactory result in one surgery, especially for cheekbone reduction surgery, as sliding of the cheeks are a common side effect.
