EZ Cheekbone reduction

It is performed through scalp incision without incision in the mouth using an endoscope.
EZ Cheekbone reduction can make a delicate adjustment of reduction level of cheekbones by rotating the broken cheekbones to inside considering the proportion of the face.
EZ Cheekbone reduction is recommended to those who have rough facial line because of protruded side cheekbones, those who have flat front cheekbones, those who have large face because of large and wide cheekbones.

OZ Cheekbone reduction

It is the operation to relocate protruded cheekbones by breaking front and side cheekbone through the incision in the mouth.
As it reduces width of the face shown from the front, it has effects to reduce not only cheekbones but also the whole face. Through delicate changes in the structure, it will improve the look of your cheekbones.
It is recommended to those who have protruded front cheekbones, those who look aged or have bad appearance or those who have wide face because of well-developed front and side cheekbones.

Before & After

Cautions after Cheekbone Reduction Surgery

  • After the surgery, please wear a resilient mask. We recommend using it immediately when you are discharged from the hospital. But if you are uncomfortable, please use it after 4 days of operation. Please wear it when you live in your everyday life for 8 weeks. Wear it from 3 to 6 months and then you will have a more beautiful line. However, do not use it at bedtime.
  • You should eat soft and light food. Please refrain from hot and spicy foods.
  • After 7 to 8 days after the surgery, you shall start practicing to open your mouth.
  • If you have cheekbone reduction through a mouth incision, please avoid the nose blowing for up to 6 weeks. If there is mucus in your nose, spit it out from your mouth.
