No face is perfectly symmetrical, and some asymmetry can result in a pleasing facial aesthetic. However, there are instances where things like physical trauma, surgeries, congenital problems or underlying medical conditions create severe and pronounced asymmetry in the face. This can be distressing for patients, as it can affect confidence and mental health, and also produce physical pain and discomfort and further complications.
Surgery is the only long-term effective treatment of facial asymmetry as it is about facial bone composition misalignment.
Facial asymmetry can become more pronounced with age, so it’s important to treat asymmetry as early as possible so that ageing asymmetry is minimal and natural, and compounded due to existing asymmetry.
