During consultation you are obligated to inform a surgeon of your lifestyle and any medications/vitamins/supplements you may be using as such can affect your treatment and also prolong your recovery.

There is always the risk of too much bone being shaved off, which may require another surgery to correct. Should your skin fail to shrink to conform to minimized cheek area, puckering of the skin is possible. Thailand cosmetic surgeons are however properly trained and can therefore prevent development of the complications.
