Maloplasty   What is Zygoma reduction?

Zygoma reduction that creates a small and beautiful face shape

Cheekbones are an important element that determines the contours of the face. excessively prominent cheekbones make your face look fierce and wide.
In addition, you look dark with them from the side. Many Korean people have cheekbones that are excessively protruded laterally, which make their face look much wider. Therefore, the key to success with zygoma reduction is how well cheekbones that are excessively protruded laterally can be corrected.

Maloplasty   General zygoma reduction surgery VS JW’s zygoma reduction

General cheekbone reduction surgery

Traditional cheekbone reduction surgery focuses on reducing the 45° cheekbones. This procedure is not effective for reducing the cheekbones laterally. It does not reduce the size of the face but makes the face look flat.

JW’s zygoma reduction

Through three-dimensional cheekbone reduction surgery, JW creates a small and beautiful cheekbone shape from any angle, including a full face, side view, and a 45° angle.

Considering how much the patient’s cheekbone is protruded and the shape of his/her frontal cheekbones, 45° cheekbones, and lateral cheekbones, JW provides the most suitable operation.

Tip. Cheekbones have three-dimensional structure and every individual has different shapes of frontal cheekbones, 45° cheekbones, and lateral cheekbones. Therefore, it is important to accurately analyze and diagnose the shape and size of cheekbones through an x-ray examination before an operation.
