Are you feeling self-conscious about asymmetrical features? Here’s how our customized Botox treatments can help restore balance and beauty to your appearance.

Facial asymmetry can be present in almost any feature including the eyebrows, eyes, lips, jawline, and nostrils and it can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics or injury.

Whatever the area and cause, treating facial asymmetry with Botox or surgical methods such as a facelift can have many benefits, such as:

  • Enhanced facial function
  • Increased self esteem
  • A more youthful and attractive appearance

What Causes Facial Asymmetry?

Facial asymmetry is very natural; even the most attractive people will have some degree of facial imbalance. However, there are certain individuals who may experience severe facial asymmetry, which can affect the quality of their lives.

Some of the causes of this type of facial imbalance include:

  • Stroke
  • Injury or trauma
  • Genetics
  • Stressors during physical development


How Can This Be Treated?

The correction of facial imbalance can be achieved with a few different treatments, including Botox and facelifts. Whether you opt for a surgical or non-surgical intervention depends on:

  • The cause of facial asymmetry
  • The severity of your case

During a one-on-one consultation, your plastic surgeon can assess your degree of facial asymmetry and determine whether Botox, dermal fillers, or a surgical intervention is most appropriate.


Non-Surgical Facial Asymmetry Treatments: Botox or Dermal Fillers

For minor, yet noticeable facial asymmetry, your plastic surgeon may recommend non-surgical intervention, which includes Botox or Juvederm. These injectables can restore facial contours and add balance to your face.

Who is this right for? Such non-invasive treatments are ideal for patients who only have a small degree of asymmetry and who don’t want to commit to any permanent change in their facial appearance.

Botox and dermal fillers are a great way to correct facial asymmetry in areas such as:

  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Lips
  • Chin

Dermal Fillers: Tissue fillers such as Radiesse, Sculptra, or Voluma are administered to add volume to one side of a patient’s jaw or cheek and restore balance to asymmetrical features.

Botox: Some plastic surgeons use Botox to reduce the prominence of a patient’s jaw or raise an eyebrow that may be sitting too low. In some cases, Botox can be used to address asymmetry in the nose.

What are the benefits of opting for non-surgical facial asymmetry treatments? The biggest advantage of treating facial asymmetry with Botox or dermal fillers is that it is more affordable and less invasive than surgical methods, such as facial implants. Such treatments can also be entirely customized to your specific requirements for the best results.
