However, for those who present a degree of asymmetry that is evident to their social and professional environment, surgery to correct facial asymmetry can be beneficial. This includes giving you:

6 Ways to Correct Facial Asymmetry

Before you consider any surgery to correct facial asymmetry, it’s important to remember that everyone has some degree of asymmetry in their face and that complete harmony is an unattainable ideal.

However, if your facial asymmetry is affecting your social and professional life, or making it difficult to do every day tasks such as eating and talking, then there are several ways to restore the function and aesthetics to your face.

The type of treatment recommended by your plastic surgeon will depend on the cause and severity of facial asymmetry and can include:

  • botox
  • soft tissue fillers (eg. Juvederm)
  • fat transfer
  • Facial Surgery (Facelift)
  • soft tissue adjustment
  • customized facial implants

Facial Asymmetry Consultation

Prior to correcting your facial asymmetry with surgery or other non-surgical methods, you should book a consultation with your plastic surgeon. During this meeting, your doctor will help determine which method is best for you by discussing your:

  • aesthetic goals
  • medical history
  • causes of facial asymmetry

Regardless of whatever option you select, the aim of any facial asymmetry procedure is to improve the balance in your features, providing a more symmetrical and harmonious appearance.

Surgery Options to Correct Facial Asymmetry

If your facial asymmetry is particularly noticeable and severe, then your plastic surgeon may recommend face surgery over non-surgical treatments such as Botox and Juvederm. This is an excellent option to significantly improve your facial function and appearance.

3 Aims of Facial Surgery

In the case of facial asymmetry, the aims of surgery include:

  • addressing any underlying facial tissue which may be causing the asymmetry
  • correcting any surrounding tissue which may have been affected or displaced by the facial asymmetry
  • compensating for any signs of asymmetrical ageing

Every case of facial asymmetry is different, which is why the choice of surgical technique requires an in-depth consultation with your surgeon. He/she will help outline your options and discuss which one is right for you.

These include:

  • facelift
  • customized implants
  • chin and cheek augmentation
  • rhinoplasty
  • eyelid Surgery
  • necklift
  • brow lift

Combination Surgery to Correct Facial Asymmetry

In many cases, multiple procedures are performed in combination to maximize the surgical results and achieve the best possible facial balance. Depending on your health and consultation with your doctor, these surgeries can be performed simultaneously or as separate procedures.
