Head Asymmetry Correction

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to ask if my head asymmetry where one side of my head is bigger than the other or it looks like it is leaning to one side, would be fixable by any of your surgeries? I am guessing one side should be reduced and the other augmented? If you need pictures from different angles please let me know.

Looking forward to your reply. 

A: For your head asymmetry I would certainly agree that the flatter right wide, from the forehead back to he posterior temporal region, needs to be augmented. I am less certain about the need to reduce the left side which appears more normal in shape. I do see some benefits to left-sided facial surgery reduce the tail of the brow bone protrusion, correct the upper eyelid ptosis and correction of the chin asymmetry.

What you have is an overall craniofacial scoliosis which affects both sides of the skull and face. For further and more definitive treatment planning, a 3D craniofacial CT scan would be needed.
