What Does Facial Asymmetry Surgery Cost?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am only just researching these procedures. I have lived my entire life with an asymmetrical face and flat head, being told that one half of my face looks young and the other like an old man. I’m 23 years old. This deformity is my biggest most unavoidable insecurity which has hindered my confidence since my teenage years. I don’t wear baseball caps or winter toques. I avoid having my picture taken as much as possible and I keep my hair long in front to cover my very uneven eyebrows. My question is will I ever be able to afford a surgery like this? How much generally is a surgery like this? Any support and advice on this would be so much appreciated.

A: Facial and skull asymmetry takes on many variations. It is impossible to say what procedures would be beneficial without seeing pictures and talking to the patient about their concerns. Every patient must create a priority list of their concerns and then a surgery plan is made around that list. Cost of surgery follows making that listyso it would be impossible to provide any estimates at this point.
