Facial Asymmetry Surgery

Q: Dr. Eppley, I was wondering if I would be able to get an idea of what is able to be done about my face being completely asymmetrical. (facial asymmetry surgery)

This is something that has bothered me my entire life and is only making me more self concious as I get older. I feel as though one side of my face is drooped. It’s not just the eyes or just the nose… every single feature I have is completely different on the right side of my face in comparison to the left. This is made even worse by the fact I am an identical twin, only we’re not identical because I was born like this and she was born with a normal even face.

After plenty of therapy etc there is still no doubt in mind that I cannot keep this face for the rest of my life. Is it possible to get computer imaging of what my face would look like and what could actually be changed to improve it. It also seems as though my jaw is more prominent on one side of my face in comparison to the other.

Thank you 🙂

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. What I see that you need to improve your facial asymmetry is:

1) Right jaw angle implant

2) Right cheek implant

3) Right corner of mouth lift

4) Fat injections to the right face between the cheeks and jaw angle
