Things to Consider before Undergoing Cheekbone Surgery
One of my best friends in high school looked fat, even if she was not overweight, because she had a wider cheekbone. She would always pucker her cheeks, hide her face with scarves, and even sport long hair, so she could hide her unsightly cheeks. Unfortunately, this was no help at all! This is a problem she shares with a majority of men and women of Asian descent, as Asians faces are structured differently from Caucasians. The typical Asian face is usually wider, with cheekbones that project sideways, and has a lower nose bridge, a forehead that is broader, and a chin that is flatter and shorter. Most Asians do not have weight problems like Caucasians due to diet and genetics, but Asian faces look larger and fatter, making their face and body look unsymmetrical.
Thankfully, the advancement in the cosmetic procedure field through the years, and the widening acceptance of global medical tourism, has given thousands of men and women of Asian descent hope. There might be people who think that altering one’s facial features is a big no-no, but people with wide cheekbones know that looking good can play a key role in their careers, relationships, and self-esteem. With more and more people flying to other countries and undergoing procedures like cosmetic nose surgery, double eyelid fold surgery, and chin augmentation, it has become natural for them to consider facial contouring surgery to harmonize their new look.
Is It Safe?
Cheek Bone Surgery is an intricate but relatively safe cosmetic procedure. The procedure is done through the mouth and not in the cheeks. Incisions are made inside the mouth, and doctors use these incisions to grind or cut the bones, or bend the bones to project higher cheek bones instead of flatter and wider ones. This is a very important facet in the overall symmetry of the face.
What to Expect after a Cheekbone Surgery?
Aside from explaining the procedure, the doctor will inform you about the preparations before and after a cheekbone surgery. Bruising and swelling are expected, and pain is experienced for the next few weeks. Eating will be laborious, and brushing the teeth and gargling might be difficult. Doctor’s orders will have to be followed strictly, and it would be beneficial to you not to plan any activities for the next two weeks, to ensure that the healing process goes smoothly.
Is it Worth It?
The procedure will, beyond any doubt, make your face look younger and softer. My friend who underwent cheekbone surgery is a living proof of the benefits of medical tourism as it can help alter the course of your life. A few months after the surgery, she became more confident, and people noticed the significant change, not only in her facial attributes but also her attitude towards work and relationships. It was not surprising that she got the promotion she has always aspired for, and a new man in her life who she is about to marry.
