Can You Make My Face More Symmetrical?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Can you make my face more symmetrical? Specifically, the lower left side of my face is much less full than the right.

A: You have an inferiorly-based left facial asymmetry, which means the entire left side of your face is verticallhy short than the right with the jawline being the most affected. This extends up into the cheek and eye area but at that level it is very slight. (see attached grid)

Such lower facial asymmetries are treated primsrily by a left custom jawline implant to match the right side. There is a soft tissue component in the trampoline area (between the cheeks and the jaw) as well which can be treated by fat injections at the same time.

But the first place to start  is to get a 3D CT face scan to see how different the two sides are from a bony standpoint.
