Overview of

Cheekbone Reduction

in Thailand

Cheekbone reduction, otherwise referred to as Zygoma reduction plasty, is a popular procedure among Asians who often believe that prominent cheekbones contribute to stiffness or imbalance when set against their soft facial features. It involves making surgical incisions in the oral cavity to contour the cheekbones in such a way that they complement the surrounding facial structures without any noticeable scarring.

Goals of

Cheekbone Reduction

Cheekbone reduction surgery works to slim down the cheeks and provide a much slender facial contour by reducing part of the zygomatic bone. The prominence of your cheekbones often depends on your bone structure or how big your cheeks’ buccal fat pads are. Individuals with large cheeks as a result of their bone structure benefit the most from this procedure as opposed to those who have enlarged buccal fat pads. Surgery is typically performed via a cheekbone osteotomy, where cuts to the bone are made, or by a less invasive bone shave.

Pros and cons of

Cheekbone Reduction

Pros

  • Cheekbone reduction can treat flat, aging, and saggy cheeks by restoring volume, plumpness, and definition.
  • Any cheek deformities as a result of trauma can also be corrected by shaping them according to the patient’s preferences.
  • Facial asymmetry, as well as protruding and chubby cheeks can be treated with this procedure to improve facial balance, proportion, and contour.

Cons

  • You may experience some minor side effects from the procedure; however, they are often tolerable. There might also be certain complications during treatment, potentially giving you results that do not complement your facial features. As such, it is essential to have a thorough discussion with your surgeon about the options available to you before deciding to settle for cheekbone reduction.
  • Women are typically expected to have cheekbones that aren’t too sharp — rather, they should be soft and round for a more feminine appearance. During the procedure, your cheeks might get repositioned lower than originally planned or may go slightly over the eye area, resulting in undesirable wider cheekbones.
  • Men, on the other hand, are usually expected to have angular cheekbones to balance facial sharpness with a strong jawline. As such, it is recommended to perform cheekbone reduction together with chin and jawline contouring. However, results from the procedure might give rise to a more feminine appearance than what was originally intended, especially if the surgeon is inexperienced.

How it works:

Cheekbone Reduction

During cheekbone reduction, discreet incisions will be placed inside the lip or along the hairline, so that there is no noticeable scarring. For the removal of buccal fat pads, incisions will be discreetly made on the inner cheeks to ensure zero visibility.

Preparation before

Cheekbone Reduction

Pre - treatment

You will be asked to:

  • Discontinue smoking for at least two weeks prior to the treatment
  • Discontinue any anti-inflammatory medications, such as Ibuprofen or Aspirin, no less than two weeks before the surgery
  • Undergo a physical examination that includes a blood test, as well as a chest X-ray
  • Take a facial X-ray for facial structure analysis to help determine the most appropriate reduction technique for your unique situation

Recovery after

Cheekbone Reduction

Post - treatment

  • After surgery, it is recommended to wear a facial garment for the next seven (or more) days to provide support and protection to the surgical incisions. If the garment cannot be worn during daytime hours, you can wear it during the night but you must do so consistently as it will help to keep pressure off the surgical sites.
  • Your lips may feel numb after surgery, which could make heavy chewing difficult. As such, you should stick to soft foods or liquids after treatment.
  • Practice good oral hygiene by washing your mouth with a saline solution after meals during the first three days post-surgery. On the fourth day, you can use a diluted mouthwash solution, or you can also opt to brush your teeth but you must do so gently.
  • Make sure to regularly clean the surgical incisions/wounds. You will be given instructions on how to do this as appropriate.
  • It is important that you visit your surgeon within the next five to seven days following surgery for your stitches to be removed during this timeframe.
  • You may experience the usual side effects such as bruising and facial swelling, which will gradually wear off over time. However, it is recommended to place a cold compress on the surgical sites for at least one to two days post-treatment to alleviate these effects. During this time, you should also sleep with your head raised against pillows to help prevent any further swelling. It may take up to three months for the appearance of your cheeks to return to normal.
  • You should avoid undertaking any strenuous physical activity for about two weeks following surgery.

FAQs:

Cheekbone Reduction

Is anesthesia required?

Anesthesia is often required for cheekbone reduction surgery as well as dimpleplasty. Since cheekbone reduction tends to be a more invasive procedure, it will be performed under general anesthesia or full sedation for the entirety of the procedure. Dimpleplasty, on the other hand, only requires local anesthesia due to its minimally invasive nature.

 

Are the results temporary or permanent?

Owing to the surgical nature of both cheekbone reduction and dimpleplasty, results can be expected to remain permanent. Noticeable results can be seen within the following two to three weeks post-surgery for cheekbone reduction, which will improve over the next three months. In contrast, dimpleplasty provides results that are immediately visible right after the procedure is completed.
