Does the patient look older after facial bone contouring surgery?

The reason for desiring a facial contour surgery is to soften and smoothen uneven facial lines. A look of the actual face may often show a drooping cheek and chin, appearing older, even after well-performed operation with respectable resultant CT images.

Such phenomenon is frequently observed among patients in their late 20s or older who undergo facial bone contouring surgery. We observed many incidences in which patients would often consider revision or lifting surgery for this reason. A face, literally and metaphorically, is an expanded balloon for individuals in their early 20s. Under these circumstances, the balloon may still be a blimp even after a slight deflation. Nevertheless, further deflation of the balloon will result in a crumpled balloon. Excessive bone resection is not desirable in facial bone contouring surgery. Considering the overall facial aesthetics and/or surgical techniques, while keeping the healthy looking outcome in mind is essential for an outstanding surgery.

What is Facial bone contouring with Rejuvenation at Apgujeong YK Plastic Surgery Clinic?

Carrying out facial bone contouring procedures for the last fifteen years, we have had much concern and research in finding facial approaches to looking young and pretty.

In the final analysis, facial bone contouring procedure has, in fact, the effect of engendering beauty and that of facial lift at the same time. Informing patients of these effects have been a real joy!
First, the foci of the face are organized by lifting/reduction of malarplasty, for which the malar bone, located in the central aspects of the face, is resected and fixed. Then, square jaw surgery of the long curved cortical bone is carried out. The slim facial line attained from square jaw surgery, together with the zygomatic arch (zygoma) that raises the masseter muscle, which originates from the zygomatic arch and inserts onto the square jaw, lifts the lower face. Endoscopic forehead lift is carried out in the upper part of the temple to raise the soft tissues together, thereby lifting the upper face. Consequently, the effect of increased overall lifting after surgery permits a younger look and more elastic face.
