Procedure Details

Procedure Steps

There are a variety of Asian facial contouring procedures available, including both non-surgical and surgical treatments.

 

Jawline

The jawline can be made slimmer using two options:

Nonsurgical Option: Botulinum injection (Botox)

Botox is a medicine that is injected to narrow the jaw without surgery. Botox works by shrinking one of the main jaw muscles called the masseter muscle. Botox injection is a simple, safe, and quick procedure. The results are temporary and will typically last 3-6 months. There are few side effects and no downtime required.

Surgical Option: Jaw Reduction Surgery

Jaw reduction surgery, also called jaw shaving, can narrow the jaw and help you achieve a beautiful, slim jawline. Jaw reduction surgery is an outpatient surgical procedure that is typically performed under general anesthesia. Through incisions hidden inside the mouth, the lower jawbones are shaved to produce a slimmer look. Recovery time is about 1-2 weeks. Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, and altered sensation are expected.

 

Chin

The chin can be made slimmer using these options:

Nonsurgical Option: Injectable fillers (Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane)

Injectable fillers are injected deep below the skin to enhance the fullness and shape of the chin. The most popular fillers used for this purpose are Radiesse, Juvederm, and Restylane. Filler injection is a simple, safe, and quick procedure. The results are temporary and will typically last 6-12 months. There is zero to minimal downtime. Mild temporary swelling, redness, bruising, and numbness are expected for about one week.

Surgical Options: V-Line Surgery; Genioplasty Surgery; Chin Implant Surgery

The chin can be made narrower and more pointy through a variety of surgical options, including V-Line Surgery which slims the jawline and chin together by shaving and contouring the jawline and chin bones, genioplasty surgery which contours the chin bone, and chin implant surgery which enhances the chin using an implant. The results are permanent from these procedures. Recovery is about 1-2 weeks. Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, and altered sensation are expected.

Cheeks

The cheeks can be contoured in a variety of ways:

Injectable Fillers: The cheekbones can be made fuller and higher (“apple cheeks”) using injectable fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, and Radiesse. Filler injection is a simple, safe, and quick procedure. The results are temporary and will typically last 6-12 months. There is zero to minimal downtime. Mild temporary swelling, redness, bruising, and numbness are expected for about one week.

Cheek Reduction Surgery (Zygoma Reduction): Cheekbones that are overly wide can be made more narrow with cheek reduction surgery. Cheek reduction surgery is an outpatient surgical procedure that is typically performed under general anesthesia. Through incisions hidden inside the mouth and in the hairline, the cheekbones are narrowed to produce a slimmer look. Recovery time is about 1-2 weeks. Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, and altered sensation are expected.

Buccal Fat Removal: Cheeks that are overly full and chubby can be made slimmer with buccal fat removal. Buccal fat removal is a short office procedure that is typically performed in the office under local anesthesia. Through incisions hidden inside the mouth, a small amount of cheek fat is removed to produce a slimmer face. There is minimal downtime. Temporary bruising, swelling, and numbness are expected.

Nose

The nose can be enhanced with Asian rhinoplasty surgery or non-surgically with non-surgical Asian rhinoplasty.

Eyes

The eyes can be made brighter and more beautiful with Asian Eyelid Surgery.

Lower eyelid hollows can be softened using injectable fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm.

Skin

The skin can be made smoother and more even and glowing through our skin care programs, esthetician services, and skin resurfacing treatments.

What to Expect After Surgery

There is no to minimal downtime for non-surgical treatments, although temporary mild swelling and bruising can be expected for injectable fillers.

Surgical facial contouring treatments can be associated with a medium length recovery period. Please contact our office for additional details.

Asian Facial Contouring FAQ

Should I Choose to Undergo My Treatments Here in the United States or overseas in Asia?

This is a popular question because there are many cutting edge procedures being performed in Korea and treatment is often less costly in Asia.

 

Here in the US, standards of care, education, safety, and products are extremely rigorous so you can feel confident that you are receiving the best quality of care when you choose a highly qualified expert like Dr. Fan.

 

In Asia, unfortunately, standards of care are more lax. Anybody is allowed to perform cosmetic surgery, so there are many poorly qualified practitioners (ie. non-plastic surgeons) marketing and practicing cosmetic surgery primarily for monetary gain. In addition, experimental treatments (marketed as the “newest” or “latest and greatest” treatment) are routinely performed on unsuspecting patients who are never informed of the potential risks and complications. Lastly, counterfeit products, medicines, and machines are rampant in Asia. These counterfeit products are not properly tested to meet safety and effectiveness standards, so buyer beware. We have seen patients who were treated abroad and told that they were getting a safe product only to find that they were injected with liquid silicone with devastating consequences.


Although there are many good and reputable surgeons in Asia, the lax environment produces the end result of many patients being unnecessarily harmed and botched. Once harmed, patients have little recourse.
