How Can My Facial Asymmetry Be Fixed?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am a male and I was wondering if you could fix my asymmetrical face and one of my eyebrows go up higher than the other side and on one side of my lip is bigger than the other side and the other side of my face is sagging than the other.
A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your picture. What you have is a right side of the face asymmetry caused by a developmental shortness on that side compared to the left side. That is most manifest by the right vertical orbital dystopia (right eye lower than the left eye) which is the cause of the lower right eyebrow. Like all facial asymmetry corrections it comes down to determining what is most important to improve vs the tradeoffs (scars) in doing so. What I tell all my facial asymmetry patients is to make a list of the feature priorities so I can go through it with them and discuss what can be done and the potential tradeoffs in doing so.
