Some people were born with symmetrical faces, which is a blessing to them, but others were not as lucky. They did not win the gene lottery. Thanks to science and technology, those who consider themselves as unlucky or medically proven in need of facial correction have the chance to get the appearance they want.
If, by any chance, you have the slightest intention of having the same procedure, then read this article to the end to find out more about surgical procedures that can make one’s face in beautiful symmetry.
Augmentation vs. reduction
To bring the symmetry in one’s face, the surgeon will either do an augmentation (filling) or reduction procedure. Augmentation is far easier than reduction because the latter requires the surgeon to take the excessive tissues of one’s face.
People usually have augmentation procedures on their chin, lips, cheek, and forehead. In Korea, augmentation surgery takes one to one and a half hours to finish.
For a facial reduction, surgeons who are experts in orthognathic surgery are the ones who handle the procedure. Depending on the request and the intended results, the reduction might involve shaving the excessive jaw bone. And that makes facial reduction more difficult than augmentation.
Facial contouring procedures
Facial contouring procedures are the ultimate way to achieve a perfectly symmetrical face. Contouring means correcting facial bone structure, but you do not need to be scared of this medical procedure.
The technology today has been so advanced, years ago doctors would think of facial contouring surgery as more of a surgery needed after a person has experienced disfiguring accident. But today, medical development has allowed jaw surgery to be more of a cosmetic treatment. Patients can heal quickly and get the natural look after around three to six months.
Facial contouring can correct the facial structure of people with a square jaw, receding chin, protruding cheeks/mouth/chin, and asymmetrical mouth. If you do the surgery in Korea, it is least likely for you to have after-surgery scars. Also, you only need to have the permission to stay in the country for two weeks on average, and you can recover at home afterward.
The average cost
Depending on the country, facial contouring surgery in Singapore or States is far more expensive than in Korea. In Korea, augmentation will charge you from 4,000 USD to 6,000 USD. For a more advanced procedure, the cost is no more than 12,000 USD. And for a total makeover, 30,000 USD will get you the best result.
Therefore, if you want to get the best result, it is better to start saving money from now.Not only the procedure that will cost your money, but also the post-surgery care. The recovery will require you to get follow-up medicines and consultations.
