Cheekbone Reduction

Cheekbone reduction is a procedure for smoothing the lines of wide cheekbones. More specifically, osteotomy on both the front and back sides of the prominent cheekbone in order to correctly and safely create a smooth bone surface. Cheekbone reduction is operated through an incision on the scalp, which makes the scar barely visible and allows you to quickly return to your daily activities. Your face will look smaller and have better proportions. 


Cheek Bone Reduction is Recommended...

  • if you have prominent cheekbones
  • if you have cheekbones that are too large or wide
  • if your face looks uneven from the frontal view
  • if you have asymmetric cheekbones

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When can I return to my daily activities?

A: You can return to your daily activities right away. However, we recommend 2-3 days of rest so that the swelling may go down.

Q: Will I experience any cheek skin laxity after the surgery?

A: Unlike other clinics, Answer Plastic Surgery’s cheekbone reduction procedure leaves partial adhesion between the skin and the bone, leaving you with nearly no skin laxity. If you lack facial volume prior to the surgery, you can also choose to get face lifting along with cheekbone reduction.

Q: Are there any side-effects or complications?

A: Answer Plastic Surgery’s cheekbone reduction is an advanced procedure that dramatically reduces possible side-effects. Until now, there has not been a patient from Answer Plastic Surgery who filed a complaint due to any side-effects or their final results.

(Possible side-effects: neurological damage, skin laxity, nonunion, trismus, and dysesthesia)

Facts about this procedure

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
