The cheekbones are an important structure of the face. The too high cheekbones may cause us to lose confidence in ourselves. Nowadays the high cheekbones can be corrected by doing cheekbone reduction surgery.

What is Cheekbone Reduction?

Cheekbone reduction also known as Zygoma reduction plasty. It is popular with some Asians who feel that their prominent cheekbones project a harsh or unbalanced look in a face with otherwise small, delicate features.  Surgical incisions are made in the oral cavity. Thus the cheekbones chiseled properly to suit the face without creating visible scars.
