Which Cheekbone Reduction Technique Is Better To Prevent Soft Tissue Sagging?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am 19 year old girl who are planning facial contouring surgery. After reading a lot of reviews facial sagging was a big problem for cheekbone reduction surgery. In one of your article you said that sagging can be prevented. I saw a lot of type of method for cheekbone surgery. I am not a doctor hence it is hard for me to say which is better and which is not. Can you recommend me a method which can prevent any soft tissue, skin sagging. Someone advised me, if i get to choose best method and take good aftercare then there would be no sagging. Is it true. Can there be no sagging at all. After the surgery what should i do to prevent from sagging.
A: The risk of soft tissue sagging after cheekbone reduction is always possible no matter what technique is used to do it. That has to be an acceptable risk if one is to consider having the surgery. No surgeon can ever tell you that it can never happen.
