dvantages of 3D Cheekbone Reduction

3D회전 광대술의 장점

Beautiful Facial Silhouette

Most Koreans (Asians) have flat faces with laterally prominent cheekbones, which usually end up with rectangular shape after typical cheekbone reduction is performed. Therefore, cheekbone reduction is the most effective when anterior, lateral and 45 degree cheekbones are all fully considered.

4 Steps to Prevent Saggy Cheeks

Saggy cheeks are prevented by following the principles such as bone fixation, masticatory muscles-secured bones, and minimum dissection.

Accurate Diagnosis leading to successful results

Cheekbone has a complex 3-dimensional structure with other facial bone fragments around it. BK Plastic Surgery Hospital uses x-ray analysis and computer imaging to maximize the precision of operation.

Minimum Scar

Making incisions inside mouth and sideburn areas minimizes the chance of scar visibility.
