Is chewing hard during cheekbone reduction recovery?

Tags:woman age 25-34 cheekbones recovery reduction

Do I have to eat only liquid food until my wounds heal? I had a rhinoplasty about 2 years ago and I remember eating was a huge struggle for the next few days post-op, and the surgery didn't even have anything to do with my mouth. I imagine it will be way worse after my cheek reduction. How bad is the recovery? I'd appreciate any information that you have for me. Thanks!
