Facial ContouringZYGOMA REDUCTION (CHEEKBONE REDUCTION)

cheekbone reduction surgery

Cheekbone reduction is a very effective way to make the face smaller and smoother. Having large cheeks often give a very strong appearance. This surgery not only reduces the width of the face but also softens facial features, creating an overall harmonious effect.

Zygoma Reduction can Benefit

  1. 1. People with protruding cheeks
  2. 2. People with high cheeks
  3. 3. People with too strong of an image

How is Zygoma Reduction Performed?

To soften the facial features, an incision (4 cm long) is made inside the mouth in the upper cheeks on both sides of the face. Cuts are made at the front and back of the cheekbone and additional cuts are made at the temporal areas. Using these incisions, the front and sides of the cheekbone are pushed back and fixed tightly to prevent any movement. Dissolvable materials can be used so that the plates are not visible through x-rays.
