Abstract

The 2 most common complications of reduction malarplasty are nonunion or malunion and cheek drooping. Because masseter muscle is attached from zygomatic process of the maxilla to inferior two thirds of the zygomatic arch, rigid fixation and intimate bone contact without creating a gap are crucial for reduction malarplasty.

Mesial-clockwise rotation of the zygomaticomaxillary complex can produce intimate bone contact and facilitates reduction malarplasty.
