Facial asymmetry correction

Nothing in nature is perfectly  symmetric. All faces have some degree of asymmetry. However, more  pronounced asymmetry may become bothersome and in severe cases, are  indicative of an underlying syndrome. Facial asymmetry can result from  congenital problems, trauma, or a prior surgery or treatment.

In some cases, asymmetry may affect not  only the form, but also the function of your eyes, nose, and mouth.  Often, the lower jaw is uneven with the rest of the face, which may be  corrected with orthognathic surgery.  Other problems may include cheek retrusion (backward displacement), eye  displacement, eyebrow lowering, forehead and brow bone protrusion, or  retrusions and nasal deviations.

Your doctor will make a thorough  examination of your face, using photos and imaging for diagnosis and  treatment planning. Together, you’ll discuss in detail your doctor’s  recommendations and suggested treatment process. Depending on the issues  to be corrected, multiple surgeries may be needed to achieve the  desired results. Correction may require moving bone (osteotomy), adding  bone (bone graft), adding a facial implant (alloplastic implant),  reducing bone, adding soft tissue, or reducing soft tissue (through  liposuction) to create a more symmetrical result. Fat grafting may also  be helpful in improving soft tissue results.
