Can Cheekbone Reduction Be Done For My Cheek Asymmetry?
Q: Dr. Eppley, As you see the cheek that I left a red mark on is way bigger/rounder which makes my left part of my left cheek / under eye area look fuller and bigger which makes it look asymmetrical.I know it looks like its mainly fuller/more fat but its really the bone. When i feel that area and compare it to my right side its fuller, bigger, rounder and there are more bone on my under eyes, What can be done for this? My right side contour is slimmer / more lifted because the bone is not so round/big like the left side. I hope you understand me. Fillers or fat are not a option because i want it to look like the right side which is the slimmer/better contoured side.
A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your picture. You are in need of cheekbone reduction surgery of which the only question is what would be the best reduction technique for its size/shape. I would need toa 3D CY scan of your cheeks to best make that determination but most likely it would be an intraoral cheekbone wedge osteotomy to help narrow it.
