Zygoma Reduction and Square Jaw Reduction

Harmonious facial balance through Zygomatic and Square Jaw Reduction:

Facial proportions play a significant role in one's appearance, and having an unbalanced face can affect a person's self-esteem and confidence. Zygomatic and square jaw reduction are two cosmetic procedures that help achieve facial balance and enhance overall facial appearance.

Zygomatic reduction, also known as cheekbone reduction, is a procedure that reduces the size of the cheekbones. Cheekbones that are too prominent or too large can create a disproportionate appearance and can make the face look wider than desired.

‘Zygomatic reduction helps to create a more harmonious balance by reducing the size of the cheekbones and making them more proportional to the rest of the face.

Square jaw reduction, on the other hand, involves reducing the size and sharpness of the jawline. A square jaw can create a masculine appearance, making the face look broader and wider than desired.

‘Square jaw reduction helps to soften the jawline and create a more feminine appearance.’


Both zygomatic and square jaw reduction are performed through incisions made inside the mouth, making the procedure minimally invasive and leaving no visible scarring. The procedures are usually done under general anesthesia and take 2 to 4 hours to complete.

Recovery time for zygomatic and square jaw reduction varies depending on the individual. Swelling and bruising are common after the procedure, but they should subside within a few days. Most patients can return to work and other normal activities within 7 to 10 days.

‘It's important to remember that both zygomatic and square jaw reduction are cosmetic procedures and should be considered carefully. Before undergoing either procedure, The surgeon will evaluate your face and take into consideration your goals and expectations for the procedure.’

In conclusion,

Zygomatic and square jaw reduction can help achieve harmonious facial balance and enhance overall facial appearance. The procedures are minimally invasive and can be performed under general anesthesia. As with any cosmetic procedure, it's essential to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if the procedure is right for you.
