Advanced Face Contouring Recovery
Surprisingly, recovery for face contouring is relatively faster than other plastic surgery. (of course, except double jaw surgery) It is because facial bones and tissues are in large part different from bones and tissues of our body. Even compared to face augmentation, bone reduction procedures require less downtime. Usually young or healthy people recover faster, and it would take at least 1-3 months for most of the swelling to disappear, and 12 months to look natural. What's difficult is eating. Since incisions are made inside your month and some impact was done along your jawbone or cheekbone, eating won't be convenient for 2-4 weeks. During this period, you are advised to eat soft foods at a lukewarm temperature. It is also a common sense to avoid any impactful sports for at least 1-3 months.
1. Cheekbone reduction in Korea
Plump cheeks are beautiful but when there is too much protrusion on the sides, they may look unappealing and masculine. You can consider zygoma reduction or cheekbone reduction for this case. It is true that some customers are adding implants to give more volume to the cheeks but those implants are inserted at the front of the face, not on the sides. In South Korea, cheekbone reduction is often combined with V-line surgery, and this will create a more soft and warm looking face. Self-testing for cheekbone protrusion is that you touch your cheekbone from the side, and if you can feel a protruded line between your nostril and ear. For cheekbone reduction, incisions are made inside your mouth but if the protrusion is too extreme, incisions can be made next to your sideburns.
2. Chin Advancement Surgery in Korea
Chin advancement surgery sits in the zone between double jaw surgery and chin implants. Chin Advancing surgery is for those who are afraid of having double jaw surgery and looking for a more permanent solution than chin implants.
