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.
