How Can My Left Facial Asymmetry Be Improved?

Q: Dr. Eppley, . I was born with a left-side form of facial asymmetry due to underdevelopment of various facial structures. My left eye sets lower than the right and my left cheek bone is flatter than the right. I also have some chin asymmetry. I am not looking for my face to be perfect just hoping for more facial asymmetry. I look forward to hearing from you.

A: Based on your comments your primary areas of facial asymmetry concern are: 1) left eye, 2) left cheek and 3) chin. The correctuve procedures would be: 1) Left cheek implant, 2) chin asymmetry osteotomy and 3) left orbital floor implant with eye corner adjustments.  You have correctly surmised that improvement is the realistic goal not perfect symmetry.
