This procedure is designed to improve cheekbones that are too tall or protruding out to the sides. The incision is created inside the mouth and then the cheekbones are shaved down using a special tool. The incision is made inside the mouth so there is no scar visible on the face. If the cheekbones protrude too much it can give the face a masculine look or the cheeks can appear sunken making one appear old. We look at the overall balance of the face and determine the perfect design so please contact us for a counseling session.
