My zygomatic orbits (next to the nose) are wide and protrude forward, crowding my eyes. I have slight hypertelorism. However; I don't feel that surgery to bring the eyes closer together is not warranted. Can this area be surgically shaved, burred, reduced or even reconstructed? I am aware that the surgery will be invasive, extensive and costly.
Can the Zygomatic Orbit Next to the Nose Be Reduced?

Eyes and nose
Hi there You clearly appreciate that you're asking a complex question. It's just impossible to give you a sensible answer without clear pictures from several views. If your question is: are there lesser procedures than a complete hypertelorism correction to improve the appearance of the upper nose and eyes if the hypertelorism is minor? Then the answer is yes. The best advice i can give you is to go for a consultation with an experienced adult cranio facial surgeon in your area. A consultation is not expensive and is the only way for you to explore your options. Good luck.
