Cheekbone Reduction

Cheekbone Reduction is a procedure done to get an oval face

Cheekbone Reduction reduces the size of the cheekbone that sticking out and creates an oval and slim face for the patients. The protrusion on the cheekbone makes your face look uneven and this often gives a very strong impression to other people. Thus, people often have their chins reduced into a more V-line shape which is considered more feminine and beautiful.

Here at MINA PLASTIC SURGERY, Dr. Cha creates the natural and smooth face line by partially removing the side cheekbone and replacing it.

At MINA PLASTIC SURGERY, Cheekbone Reduction (Quick )generally takes 30 minutes to complete the surgery. Operation duration could be different depending on a patient’s health condition and the surgical situation.

Patients will be under Local anesthesia during the operation. After the surgery, you will stay in the recovery room for several hours to wake up from the anesthesia and receive aftercare service served by MINA PLASTIC SURGERY.

After 7 days of the operation, you will visit our clinic for the removal of stitches and aftercare. The recovery time for returning to daily life would be 7 days; however, swelling may remain for a while. Smoking is avoided for 2 weeks after surgery to prevent any possibility of the side-effects.

How it works

1. Dr. Cha makes a minimal incision on the side scalp, just above the ear.

2. The photo is showing the cheekbone viewed downwards from above. A small part of the cheekbone is fractured.

3. Using the force of periosteum, Dr. Cha lets the fractured bones get attached naturally.

4. Dr. Cha pulls the surrounding skin and the muscle up to prevent them from sagging, makes them adhere to the bone, and finishes up by stitching back the incised part.

The bone structure and the outline are the ‘hidden cards’ of a beautiful face. They are less noticeable but play a huge part in making the face more beautiful. With the right angle, proportion, and symmetry, the bone structure and the outline of the face will provide a gorgeous canvas for other facial features to set in.

‍The ‘ideal’ proportion of the frontal face would be the ratio of 0.8:1:1:1:0.8. 0.8 indicating the space starting from the outer corners of your eyes, to where the face ends, 1 being each eye, and the nose. The desired vertical ratio tends to be 1:1:0.8~1, first starting from the hairline and ending right beneath the eyebrows, second from the eyebrows to the tip of the nose, and 0.8~1 being from the tip of the nose to the chin.
