This refers to the prominence of the cheekbone which causes the appearance of a wide face.
The hard cheekbone is to be rotated 3-dimensionally for reducing the protrusion. For this purpose the bone is cut at the rear and frontal portion and then the bone can be easily rotated to fix it in the desired position to reduce the projection. The projection of the bone can easily be controlled by monitoring the rotation of the bone as well as the incision done on the zygoma arch and body. By employing this method for the surgery the solidity and efficacy of the surgery is assured. This method needs to be applied with great care and precision because in most of the patients, composite cheekbone shape is present. Using this method, the cheekbone can easily be reduced no matter what shape it is in.
