A cheekbone reduction surgery is a type of procedure designed to reduce the rugged angles and sharpness that cheekbones can produce. While some people prefer this look, others prefer a smoother contour to their face. This treatment is becoming increasingly popular. The zygoma is the bony portion of the cheek that produces the sharp and angular look that sometimes accompanies cheekbones. If you're considering a cheekbone reduction surgery, the costs are kept very low in general due to our partnership at Junomedical with a large number of surgeons and clinics throughout the world that offer this surgery.

Overall, the total costs should come in at around 80 percent lower than the averages you would find in the US, UK and Australia. Prices can also depend on the clinic where the procedure is being done at, as well as the extent of it. Many of the surgeons that provide this surgery have received a lot of training and have garnered many years of experience in dealing with cheekbone reduction treatments. A cheekbone reduction will provide you with a smaller face, appealing look and slick facial line. The surgery usually takes around two to three hours to complete.

How Does a Cheekbone Reduction Procedure Work?

Before any incisions are made, you are first provided with some general anesthesia. This will numb any pain that you would otherwise experience during the surgery. Incisions will be made at two locations, inside the mouth and inside the temporal area. The frontal and rear zygoma bones will be fractured and pushed inwards to reduce the effects on the skin. Additional movements can depend on how severe the angles of your cheekbones are. The surgical site may then be fixed with a screw in order to ensure that the bone doesn't move. Following this, the incisions will be closed with sutures.

As for the recovery period, hospitilization typically lasts one day, while any stitches can be removed in two short weeks. A compression bandage should be worn for a few days. You can return to work in a week or so following the treatment, but many people choose to wait until the stitches are removed before doing so. This treatment is recommended for anyone that has a noticeable front or side cheekbone, a wide face or an unbalanced facial contour that they wish to restore.
