Before & After 3D Zygoma Reduction Surgery

The 3D zygoma reduction surgery offered by iWELL Plastic Surgery involves rotating and moving the cheekbones inward and reducing the thickness of the bones, thereby changing the appearance of the front and side cheekbones. The zygoma reduction helps make the face appear smaller, while enhancing its three-dimensional look.

– Wide and large face
– Looks older than one’s actual age

AFTER

– Smoother jawline and slimmer face
– More youthful appearance

Top 3 Concerns Related to Zygoma Reduction Surgery

iWELL Plastic Surgery has eliminated

the top 3 concerns related to zygoma reduction surgery

1. Minimization of adverse effects through

minimal incision and perfect fixation

High-quality titanium plates or absorbable plates are used for double fixation to ease the concerns regarding nonunion. Surgical instruments developed specifically for zygoma reduction by iWELL are used to minimize tissue separation and boost surgical accuracy, thereby easing concerns regarding sagging of the cheeks.

2. Smaller face that looks more three-dimensional!

iWELL’s 3D zygoma reduction surgery involves rotating and moving the cheekbones inward, unlike the methods applied in conventional zygoma reduction surgery. Through this method, the arched part of the cheekbones is moved inward, which helps decrease the width of the face as much as possible.

3. Speedy return to everyday routines!

An endoscope is used to view the surgical site during surgery, which helps enhance accuracy and minimize bleeding. Tiny incisions are made to reduce swelling and cause minimal scarring so that you can return to your everyday routines much more quickly.

Characteristics of iWELL 3D Zygoma Reduction

A face that looks most beautiful is one that is symmetrical with smooth contours. However, most people (more than 90%) have asymmetrical faces. Although facial asymmetry cannot be completely corrected, iWELL’s 3D zygoma reduction surgery can help improve the appearance and make the face appear more balanced. When it comes to cheekbones, even a tiny difference of 1~2mm can result in big changes, and this is why the plastic surgeons at iWELL perform surgery with accuracy and meticulousness to produce natural-looking results.

Small and Youthful Looking 3D Face

iWELL’s 3D zygoma reduction surgery is aimed at enhancing the volume in certain areas of the face, instead of simply pushing in the cheekbones, and this helps create facial contours that appear natural from every angle.

Plump Front Cheekbone Area

The front cheekbones are reduced in size in balance with the side cheekbones,
yet a plump look is created to make the face appear smaller and more youthful.

The front cheekbones are reduced in size in balance with the side cheekbones, yet a plump look is created to make the face appear smaller and more youthful.

Reduction of Side Cheekbones

The width of the face is reduced so that the cheekbones do not
appear to be protruding outward to the side.

3D Zygoma Reduction Surgery Surgery Procedure

01 A 3cm incision is made inside the mouth and a part of the front cheekbones is cut in a wedge shape. The extent of the cut is determined based on the size of the protruding cheekbones.
02 The bone cut in a wedge shape is removed. (In most cases, a certain amount of bone is removed, but if this is unnecessary because the cheekbones are not excessively large, then the bones will only be cut.)
03 A 1cm incision is made in the scalp near the ears to perform an osteotomy on the zygoma arch.
04 The cheekbone is separated and rotated inward before it is fixed in place.
05 The roughness of the boundary between the bones is minimized and a titanium plate or absorbable plate of the highest quality is used in double fixation.

Osteotomy Principles of iWELL Plastic Surgery’s 3D Zygoma Reduction Surgery

Conventional Method of Zygomatic Osteotomy iWELL’s Method of Zygomatic Osteotomy
Osteotomy Site
Osteotomy Method L-shaped osteotomy Wedge-type L-shaped osteotomy
(prevents sagging and depression in the cheeks and facilitates union)
Reduction Effect General reduction of the face size Osteotomy is performed in a deeper place than in the conventional method, so the face size reduction effect is further enhanced, and volume is added to certain areas for a more youthful face with well-defined contours
Volumizing Effect Small volumizing effect due to little improvement in the front cheekbones Because the area of protrusion differs from individual to individual, a 3D-CT scan of the cheekbones is obtained so that volume can be added to wherever it is needed by identifying the MMP points.

Rotation Principles of iWELL Plastic Surgery’s 3D Zygoma Reduction Surgery

iWELL’s 3D zygoma reduction surgery does not merely involve pushing in the cheekbones, but it serves to rotate the cheekbones inward, which effectively reduces the size of the side and 45° cheekbones. When both of the side and 45° cheekbones protrude outward, the balance of the face is greatly affected by the degree to which the cheekbones are rotated and moved. iWELL’s 3D zygoma reduction method is designed to rotate and move the cheekbones in a definite way, thereby effectively making the front, side and 45° cheekbones appear less prominent and restore balance in the face for satisfying results.

Fixation Principles of iWELL’s 3D Zygoma Reduction

The most important step in zygoma reduction is moving the cheekbones to an ideal location and securely fixing them in place. Unless they are fixed appropriately, there may be a chance of recurrence, or the cheekbones may move downward, causing a depression in the cheekbone area or the cheeks to sag. In such cases, the patient may also experience pain and hear a sound when chewing food. iWELL’s 3D zygoma reduction surgery involves the use of high-quality titanium plates or absorbable plates for double fixation of the cheekbones, which serves to minimize adverse effects such as malunion or nonunion. As a result, you can expect to gain more beautiful facial contours from this safe and effective zygoma reduction procedure.

Facial Contouring Specialists

Who Graduated from SNU College of Medicine

Plastic surgeons who have graduated from Seoul National University (SNU) College of Medicine establish a surgical plan considering the facial bones and characteristics of the patient and his/her wants and needs after sufficient consultation. Special information such as the thickness and length of the chin, nerve locations, etc. is taken into account during surgery to bring out the most beautiful face in every patient.

Differentiated

Facial Contouring Methods

At iWELL, we relentlessly perform research to develop new surgical methods and to produce the most satisfying results through safe implementation of facial contouring methods. We have applied for and registered patents with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) for the surgical instruments developed based on our facial contouring specialists’ abundant surgical experience and research.

Facial Contouring

Advanced Medical System

The low-dose 3D-CT equipment at iWELL helps maximize the scope of CT scanning and allows a more accurate assessment of the bone structure of the face thanks to its high resolution. There is also a 3D scanner with which a virtual plastic surgery procedure can be performed as a way to predict the results. Through these measures, individually tailored facial contouring surgery can be performed in a safer and more accurate manner.

Full-Time Anesthesiologist

with Experience in Plastic Surgery

At iWELL, where patient safety is our No. 1 priority, we have a full-time anesthesiologist with an abundant experience in sitting in plastic surgery procedures. We also implement a real name system, referring to the practice of recording the names of the plastic surgeons performing the procedure to prevent unauthorized substitution and consequential medical incidents. We also well-prepared for any medical incidents or accidents that may potentially occur during surgery and equipped with an emergency system to ensure safety.

A Personalized, One-on-One

Post-Care System

At iWELL Plastic Surgery, we implement a personalized post-op care system to ensure satisfying results and help minimize the pain and swelling after surgery. A patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) pump is provided so that a predetermined amount of a pain-relieving drug can be administered automatically in order to minimize pain. Also, systematic and specialized one-on-one post-op care is provided after facial contouring surgery to help patients return to their everyday routines as quickly as possible.
