Abstract

The aesthetic face for Orientals is different than for white persons. Orientals are usually mesiocephalic compared with dolichocephalic whites, and thus, reduction malarplasty of the prominent malar eminence is often sought by Orientals. A classification for each type of prominent zygoma and a method of treatment for each type are presented.
