What is Cheekbone Augmentation?

Facial appearance is determined by three fundamental components: the skin, the soft tissues, and the underlying skeletal structure. Many cosmetic surgery procedures focus on the first two. A facelift, for example, lifts and tightens the skin and soft tissues to restore a more vibrant and youthful facial aesthetic. These procedures have beautiful results, but there are limitations to what can be achieved by changing the skin and soft tissue alone. For bringing about dramatic facial changes, few techniques can match the power of bone contouring. Reshaping the hard skeleton is one of the most impactful branches of plastic surgery, and it encompasses a number of areas and techniques. One of the most popular bone contouring options here at Asian Plastic Surgery is cheekbone augmentation. Below, we answer some of your most frequently asked questions about this procedure.
