What is zygoma reduction?

The cheekbone is pushed up to be not only reduced,
but the muscles are also pulled up for a lifting effect!
Facial line, volume and elasticity have been considered in Apgujeong YK’s zygoma reduction. Apgujeong YK’s zygoma reduction approach not only reduces the zygomatic bone, but also lifts the muscle. This minimizes cheek drooping while allowing a slimmer, more attractive facial line at the same time.

Conditions requiring
zygoma reduction

01

Cases with a large face due to protrusion of the anterior zygomatic bone

02

Cases where the
zygomatic bone is
bilaterally asymmetric

03

Cases where the face is bumpy
and uneven

04

Cases with a wide facial width secondary to over-developed anterior and lateral
zygomatic bones

05

Cases where the cheek looks hollow

06

Cases that concerns cheek drooping after zygoma reduction

Differences from conventional zygoma reduction

Zygoma Reduction with Lifting VS Zygoma Reduction
A definite facial reduction effect by reducing the anterior and lateral zygomatic bone. Face reduction effect The facial reduction effect is inadequate with simple zygoma reduction
A definite facial reduction effect by reducing the anterior and lateral zygomatic bone. Bone removal A protruded bone is removed by fracturing, which depends on the size of protruded zygomatic bone.
A definite facial reduction effect by reducing the anterior and lateral zygomatic bone. Lifting effect No lifting effect
Minimizes possible cheek drooping. Cheek drooping High possibility of cheek drooping

Why Apgujeong YK’s
Zygoma Reduction with Lifting?

01

YK PLASTIC SURGERY

Speedy operation time

Minimum separation reduces chances of hemorrhage and injuries to the soft tissues in the muscle, which facilitate recovery

02

YK PLASTIC SURGERY

Definitely improves the contour line

The zygomatic bone is fractured in an “L” shape. It is then deeply pushed up and fixed, which reduces the facial width therefore maximizes the effect of having a small face.

03

YK PLASTIC SURGERY

Excelled lifting effect

The jawbone and peripheral muscles are plated and fixed upwards to reduce the check from drooping, and other existing slack skin is pulled tightly to create small & elastic cheekbone line.

04

YK PLASTIC SURGERY

The rejuvenation effect that lasts

The bone and the muscle are solidly fixed, and such a structural fixation is long-lasting and has the rejuvenation effect as opposed to having a lift or facial bone contouring independently.
