How Can I Correct My Asymmetrical Mouth Corner and Nose?
Q: Dr. Eppley, How can I correct my asymmetrical mouth and nose? I am not sure what is causing it. Do you think it’s my jaw?
A: The mouth corner, nose and lower jaw asymmetry are reflective of the overall congenital facial asymmetry. It could be called a left facial hypoplasia or a right facial hypertrophy depending upon which side facial length wise) you prefer.
The mouth corner needs a corner of the mouth/lateral vermilion lift to make it more even to the other side.The nose requires a rhinoplasty with right nostril narrowing.
