Is facial asymmetry one of your main aesthetic concerns? At our Edmonton clinic, our board-certified plastic surgeon offers a wide range of treatments, from cosmetic facial surgery to Botox®, to help enhance your appearance.

Facial asymmetry is very natural: everyone, even the most attractive actors and supermodels, have some degree of facial imbalance. However, there are some cases in which individuals experience extreme facial asymmetry which can affect their self-confidence, and personal and professional lives. 

Some of the causes of such extreme facial asymmetry include: 

  • Genetics
  • Trauma (e.g. an injury to the face) 
  • Stroke
  • Stressors during physical development

Always Talk to a Plastic Surgeon Before Undergoing Facial Asymmetry Treatment 

Whatever the extent of your facial asymmetry, you should ALWAYS consult a trusted, board-certified plastic surgeon before making any treatment decisions. Such a professional can evaluate your situation and recommend treatment options that will give you the best results.

How Can Facial Asymmetry Be Corrected? Surgical vs Non-Surgical Options 

In most cases, facial asymmetry doesn’t need to be corrected. However, for patients who do require treatment, there are two main options: cosmetic facial surgery and non-surgical procedures. Here are your options: 

Minimally Invasive Treatments for Facial Asymmetry 

Slight asymmetry can be effectively addressed and corrected using non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, such as: 

1. Botox®

Botox® is recommended by some plastic surgeons as an option to reduce the prominence of a patient’s jaw, or to raise an eyebrow that is sitting too low. In some cases, this injectable can be used to address nasal asymmetries. 


2. Dermal fillers

Tissue fillers such as Voluma and Sculptra can be administered to add volume to one side of the jaw or cheek, restoring a good balance to the facial features. The aim of these non-surgical treatments is to improve and restore facial volume, while enhancing facial contours and correcting any facial asymmetry that may be a concern to you.

Cosmetic Surgery for Facial Asymmetry 

If your facial asymmetry is highly noticeable, then your plastic surgeon may suggest opting for cosmetic facial surgery. While this option is more expensive and requires more downtime, it will significantly improve your appearance. 

Some options include: 

  1. Cheek implants. These work to restore volume to flat cheeks, enhance cheekbone definition and add a youthful fullness to your face. 

  2. Jaw implants. Jaw implants are designed to expand the lower part of your face to balance out any asymmetry. It can also be used to correct a weak jaw or create a strong, masculine jawline for male patients. 

  3. Chin implants. Your plastic surgeon will use chin implants to improve the size and projection of a weak chin, thus improving the overall balance of the face.
