Do you have any asymmetrical facial features you wish to correct? Here’s how the Botox skin treatments at our plastic surgery clinic can help.

Overview

Asymmetry can be present in virtually any facial feature including the jawline, lips, nostrils eyes and eyebrows. Some features are easier to correct than others and some asymmetrical features are more noticeable than others.

The benefits of facial symmetry include:

  • A more youthful, attractive appearance
  • Better balance of facial muscles
  • Better facial function

Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon to develop customized skin treatments such as Botox, can help correct any facial asymmetry and create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

How Can Facial Asymmetry Be Corrected?

The correction of facial asymmetry can be accomplished through several avenues and mostly depends on:

  • The cause of facial asymmetry
  • The severity of asymmetry

By examining your condition, your plastic surgeon can help determine whether or not a non-surgical skin treatment such as Botox would be appropriate or if surgery is required.

If the asymmetry is minor soft tissue related, then either Botox or a dermal filler may be a suitable treatment.

Botox and/or Dermal Fillers for Facial Asymmetry

For minor but noticeable asymmetry, plastic surgeons often recommend injectable dermal fillers or wrinkle relaxers such as Botox to restore facial contours and add balance to your face.

These non-invasive skin treatments are ideal for patients with a small degree of asymmetry and who don’t want to commit to any permanent change in their face.

Botox & Dermal Fillers can be used to correct asymmetry in facial areas such as:

  • Chin
  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Lips

The process of injecting facial fillers in non-surgical requires little downtime and is entirely customizable to your specific requirements and aesthetic goals.

By working with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in such injectables, your facial imbalance can be adjusted to give you a more harmonious, attractive appearance.

Surgical Options for Facial Asymmetry

When facial asymmetry is more severe and non-surgical treatments such as Botox are determined to be unsuitable, your plastic surgeon may recommend a surgical lift.

This can include a:

These lifts can help resolve any facial imbalances by tightening skin and muscle while removing excess skin and fat.

Often, multiple procedures will need to be performed in conjunction with one another to maximize results and achieve greater facial symmetry. These can be performed simultaneously or as separate surgeries.

Your plastic surgeon will work with you during a consultation to determine which procedures would be the best fit for your particular face and concerns and when they should be done.
