Satisfaction After Surgery for
Square or Wide Face

Since a slender or oval facial contour is considered more attractive in many Asian cultures, facial bone contouring is a common surgical procedure in the Orient.

A recent study from Taiwan examined patient outcomes after craniofacial surgery for "square face" in almost fifty patients and found a surprisingly high rate of patient satisfaction.

Two-thirds of the patients had undergone mandibular angle (jaw) reduction (jaw reduction) and one-third had undergone zygoma reduction (cheek reduction).

98% of patients felt that there was noticeable improvement in their final front and side facial profiles, and 96% felt were satisfied with symmetry.

Almost two-thirds could detect no bony "step" or deformity to touch and reported no visible deformity from the incisions.

While nearly 1 in 5 experienced some sort of problem after surgery, all recovered without any long-term consequences.

98% stated that they would undergo the same surgery again under similar circumstances and would recommend the operation to their friends.

All patients reported positive psychosocial influence on their daily lives and relationships.

Such high rates of patient satisfaction have not been reported after double eyelid surgery or augmentation rhinoplasty, perhaps because even the smallest flaw can be easily noticed.
