Cheek Reduction Thailand
Beautifully sculpted cheeks add character and beauty to the face. A too round or too full cheek can give a chubby appearance which can often be at odds with the rest of the features. Cheek reduction surgery in Thailand can make a dramatic difference to the overall aesthetic of the facial features with a more chiseled look, slimming the contours of the face.

Who is a candidate for cheek reduction surgery in Thailand?

How is the cheek reduction surgery performed?
A small incision is made along the inside of the cheek, near the gum line above the second upper molar. The surgeon applies external pressure to the cheek muscle, under the cheek bone, which forced the cheek or buccal fat to protrude through the incision. The excess fat is drawn out by means of a forceps and then trimmed away until the surgeon is satisfied that enough has been removed to create a more sculpted look to the cheek area. The incision is then sutured closed.
