What Are My Options For Improving Loose Tissue After Cheekbone Reduction Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m very insecure about the loose skin hanging down my cheekbones under my temples. This problem started after cheekbone reduction surgery. The loose skin makes my face asymmetrical and seem wider than it is. Attached are photos showcasing my problem. The photos where I’m using my hands to lift the problem areas is the look I want to achieve. What are my options? 

A:You have a not uncommon sequelae from cheekbone reduction surgery particularly if wide periosteal undermining and releases are done. The only option to treat it is a temporal browlift of which different techniques exist to do so but the most effective is the hairline method.
