Cheek Bone Reduction

Why is cheekbone reduction done?

Cheekbone reduction is a cosmetic surgery done to correct excessively prominent cheekbones by shaving and/or repositioning the cheekbones.

How is cheekbone reduction done?

  • A small incision is placed about one inch long inside the mouth and a space is made, up and over the bones to be reduced.
  • The excess cheekbone is reduced by grinding it down or making cuts in the bone and removing enlarged pieces.
  • The procedure is repeated for the other side and the incisions are closed
  • No dressings, drains, or garments are needed.
