Dr. Ching has studied in Korea with some of the pioneers of facial bone contouring to perfect his techniques of cheekbone reduction and contouring. This knowledge puts him in the forefront of cometic surgeons serving Asian clients in Hawaii or anywhere else.

For patients with very wide and prominent cheekbones, the bone is reshaped with a combination of bone shaving and bone cutting. This is done through small incisions that are hidden in the scalp and inside the mouth. Therefore, your cheek reduction leaves no noticeable traces or scars.

Enhance Your Look with Asian Cheek Contouring

The beauty of your facial structure can be dramatically improved by recontouring overly prominent cheekbones. To achieve the most aesthetic look, you want to ensure your facial sculpting treatment is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience and an eye for balance and harmony. The procedure will be customized for you and performed with meticulous precision. You can achieve a more refined, attractive facial structure when under the care of Dr. Shim Ching. He is widely recognized as being among the most talented facial plastic surgeons for Asians in Honolulu and beyond.

Your Journey to Facial Enhancement with Dr. Ching

Your surgery may involve reducing a sharp outward contour of prominent cheekbones. Some patients choose a more comprehensive facial restructuring by treating both the cheeks and the jawline, to create the beauty of a V-line structure, the universal standard of physical beauty. Facial surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, and will take several hours to complete, as it is a precision surgery. You will not experience pain during the surgery and will regain consciousness while resting in our private recovery suite.

Take the Time to Rest and Recover 

You are then free to return home to rest and recover, under the care of another adult. The treated areas will be bandaged. Dr. Ching will prescribe pain medication, so you are comfortable during your recovery. 

You can expect swelling, which peaks at about the third day. Wear the compression bandages as prescribed. Incisions within your mouth will require you to eat only a liquid diet for a week or so. Dr. Ching will be meeting with you several times in follow-up appointments, and he or one of his caring team are always available to speak with you if you have questions or concerns. You should begin enjoying your enhanced look within a week to ten days in most cases.
