Zygoma reduction

Overly prominent zygoma (cheekbone) can create a strong, rough look. Prominent zygoma will become more noticeable as you age and the cheeks lose their volume (fat). A natural frontal cheek volume can be created by repositioning the angle of the cheekbones and make you look younger. This surgical procedure involves minimal separation of soft tissue and bone and adjusting the position of the cheekbones according to each patient’s skin texture and elasticity. To prevent the cheekbones from widening again after surgery, the bones are secured with titanium pins which have the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any natural metal known to man. With maximum height L-shape osteotomy and cheekbone shaving patients can have balanced and slim looking cheeks from the side and front profiles.

Process of zygoma reduction surgery

  1. The front of the cheekbones is cut in an L shape through an incision inside the mouth. The size of the L-shaped incision is based on the size of the cheekbones.
  2. The side of the cheekbones is approached through an incision made in the sideburn area.
  3. Excess bone is removed.
  4. The cheekbones are repositioned to create balanced and youthful looking cheeks.
  5. The cheekbones are securely and firmly fixed with titanium pins.
