Question:

What is cheekbone reduction surgery?

Answer:

Cheekbone reduction surgery is a relatively extensive procedure during which the cheekbones or zygoma bones are either shaved or fractured before being pushed inwards. Typically maxillofacial surgeons and occasionally craniofacial plastic surgeons perform this surgery. Incisions are made inside the mouth or behind the hairline and screws may be needed to hold the new bone structure in place.
