Facial contouring: osteotomy is not the only answer

In general, facial contouring surgery is associated with osteotomy of facial bone structure. However, there are many other ways through which facial structure can be improved, because the facial shape is determined not only by the bone structure but also by the development of various soft tissues, such as skin, fat, and muscles. If the patient’s concerns about facial structure are not due to the bones but of protrusions or sagging of soft tissues, the tissues must be reshaped as desired for a more satisfying facial contouring.

Therefore, in facial contouring, improvements upon facial soft tissues are as important as an osteotomy. For a more effective facial structure improvement, the surgeon must be prepared to provide both osteotomy and soft tissue correction.

More precise diagnosis and surgery means more effective results

One benefit of facial contouring through soft tissue reshaping is that it is less daunting than an osteotomy. The procedure involves relatively small incision and peeling, which means less concerns about pain or scarring, and without an osteotomy, the recovery is quicker as well. Therefore, if the right surgical method for improvements is selected through a precise understanding of the patient, soft tissue reshaping can provide a more efficient and effective facial contouring.

Accusculpt smooths facial contours and increases skin firmness

Double-chin or sagging cheekbones that blur the facial silhouette occurs because of the subcutaneous fat under the skin. The skin sags with the increased fat tissue, creating a curved face and causing various wrinkles like nasolabial folds.

To address these sagging, BANOBAGI uses Accusculpt that can increase skin firmness while reducing fat.

Accusculpt is a laser-based liposuction system: its precision makes it effective for more detailed facial contouring procedures. Because it selectively liquefies and sucks out subcutaneous fact, it causes almost no bleeding or tissue damage, making it a relatively safe option. Moreover, the system stimulates collagen to increase skin firmness—it provides not only smooth and sharp facial silhouette but also anti-wrinkling effects.

  • Gentler and simpler procedure
  • Increased skin firmness
  • Can apply to almost all face areas

Reducing mass of buccal fat creating a slimmer facial silhouette in a more direct manner

Once developed because of fat storage deep within the cheeks, “deep cheeks” create negative facial impressions and puff out the cheeks, making the face appear larger or bulkier. Because diet control or liposuction cannot provide great improvements, a more direct approach must be taken to reduce the fat mass within deep cheeks: through deep cheek reshaping.

Buccal Fat Removal reduces the fat mass itself located within the deep cheek. Its benefit is that it can quickly reshape your facial silhouette into a slimmer version.

Furthermore, the incision is relatively small—within 1 cm—and located inside the mouth: the recovery is quicker, and the scarring is less visible.

  • Slimmer and trendier facial silhouette
  • More direct and semi-permanent effects
  • Small incision of 1 cm: no worry of scarring
  • Short operation time, can resume routine immediately

Masseters contributes to a square jaw, as much as a wide jawbone development

Masseters, located at either end of the jawbones, are muscles that play key roles in chewing. If you touch either of your jaws’ end as you bite down, you can feel the masseters contract. However, overdevelopment of masseters can easily lead to a so-called “square jaw” and in severe cases, can cause temporomandibular illnesses or teeth grinding. Therefore, it is better to reduce the masseters’ size through Botox or masseter reduction.

BANOBAGI makes an appropriate choice between Botox and masseter reduction, depending on your masseter development.

Masseter reduction is a semi-permanent treatment, unlike Botox, whose effects are temporary and may cause you to develop resistance. The surgery is also simple enough, allowing you to return to your routines immediately: it is a stress-free way to improve a square jaw.

Better results may be achieved when combined with other procedures

  • Cheekbone Reshaping

    If cheekbones are overdeveloped, conjoined cheekbone reshaping can create a facial silhouette that goes with a slim jawline.
