Dr. Jong Chul Park from Wonjin plastic surgery hospital said that “Facial contour surgery is not only cutting a lot of bone, it is important to create a surgery plan that is customized through finding the harmony of each individual facial line and shape after precise analysis of the individual's facial bones, muscles, soft tissue, skin condition, and amount of fat.”
Facial contour surgery is where the surgeon literally shaves and cuts the protruded and angled bones to create small and slim face from a large and angled facial line. Facial contouring surgery can be categorized into cheekbone reduction, square jaw reduction, and chin surgery with the surgery method differing according to the area which needs improvement and each individual’s features.
Cheekbone reduction can give the effect of narrower facial width by reducing the protruding parts of the cheekbone. It is possible to improve facial line smoothness with this surgery as well. Square jaw reduction corrects the lower part of the face via osteotomy from the bottom bone of the ear to where the angled bone begins. It is a surgery that makes the outer facial line smoother and, if the length of chin is too short or long, it is advised to proceed with chin surgery together with other options to help create a small and slim V line face from a frontal view.
Facial contour surgery is not only cutting a lot of bone, it is important to create a surgery plan that is customized through finding the harmony of each individual facial line and shape after precise analysis of the individual's facial bones, muscles, soft tissue, skin condition, and amount of fat.
Facial contour surgery is an improvement method which makes the fundamentals of the face smaller and creates a smooth line. However, it is a surgery that shaves and moves actual bone, so sufficient consultation should be conducted through 3D-CT prior to surgery with a surgeon who has extensive clinical experience and understands the actual bone size and location. A thorough understanding of the nerve line before making a plan for face contouring surgery is also required.
Safety is paramount and it is also advised to verify that the safety and emergency medical treatment of the hospital are comprehensive so that safe and satisfactory surgery can be accomplished.
