Many techniques are used to reduce malar prominence, all of them very similar and described many years ago. The basic problem of the osteotomy is instability produced by the pedicle bone flap in the zygomatic arch because the bone flap has great mobility precisely due to the elasticity of the zygomatic arch. This mobility is increased by the masseter muscle activity that originates precisely at the lower edge of the zygomatic malar complex. Therefore, the direction of the bone flap and the… CONTINUE READING
