Cheek Reduction Surgery in Fountain Valley CA area
Many patients who visit Dr. Thuan Nguyen and the team at The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery are interested in addressing certain imperfections of the face and body. Our team of professionals works directly with men and women to target the areas of concern that make them feel self-conscious or embarrassed about their appearance. One procedure readily available with our team in Fountain Valley, CA is the cheek or cheekbone reduction surgery.

What is cheekbone reduction?

Men and women who have prominent cheekbones and want to address the height, width, and shape of them may be a good candidate for cheekbone reduction surgery. This plastic surgery approach offers facial rebalancing and harmony with shaving the cheekbones, reducing imperfections that may impact one’s overall appearance. Additionally, our professionals use discreet locations to create the incisions for surgery to eliminate any visible scarring on the facial area.

During cheekbone reduction surgery, the bone tissue is filed down or “shaved” when there are minor changes to make. Alternatively, if patients have very prominent cheekbones that need to be reduced, they may have a technique called “osteotomy” performed. This is more complex and requires cutting and repositioning the cheekbones. This may be done in addition to cheekbone shaving for a smooth and dramatic improvement.

The first step in undergoing cheekbone reduction surgery is to determine if you are an appropriate candidate. Dr. Thuan Nguyen and his team at The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery believe in providing conservative approaches whenever possible. This may include the use of certain cosmetic injectables to help in reshaping this area of the face. However, if surgical intervention is the only way to achieve the results patients desire, then a procedure is planned.

Dr. Thuan Nguyen will evaluate the facial structure and make recommendations as to what technique should be used to obtain results. Patients will schedule their surgical procedure, which is often done with general anesthesia at our surgical location. Patients are encouraged to ask their doctor about what to expect the day of treatment, as well as discuss their recovery. The side effects and length of time required for recovery will vary greatly, depending on the type of cheekbone reduction performed and the invasiveness of the procedure. Most patients can expect to spend several weeks for a full recovery, experiencing most of the swelling, numbness, and discomfort during the first week after treatment. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are normal and typically fade with time. Patients need to contact their doctor if they have any concerns and should attend their post-operative follow-up to ensure the procedure has produced the desired results without infection or visible scarring.
