What Would Be The Cost Of My Facial Asymmetry Correction Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am concerned about the asymmetry on my face. My jaw slopes to my right and my right eye, lip, and nostril area are dragged downwards. My right eye is lower than my left, I don’t consider it to be too severe but it is quite noticeable and I would really like to fix it. My right brow, nostril, and lip corner are lower as well. I think an orbital floor augmentation/ implant and any procedures accompanying it would solve my VOD, however I’m not sure if I’m the right candidate. My desire would be for the affected areas on the right to be symmetrical to the left accept for my jaw which I would like address in the future. I am very curious to know your informed opinion and ballpark prices for each of the procedures that would be needed to fix the asymmetries on my right being my lip, nostril, and eye + (brow). A response and price estimation would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

A:Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. In the assessment and treatment planning of facial asymmetry it requires a good quality frontal picture (yours does not include the full face, is not current and are very grainy in clarity) and a 3D CT scan of your face to have full knowledge of the underlying facial bone structure. 

But those issues aside, what is equally important is for the patient to make a list of their specific facial asymmetry concerns AND to prioritize them in order of importance. This allows the patient to focus their resources on the procedures that have the greatest value to improvement of their facial asymmetry concerns. 

In short a better picture and knowing your priority concerns would allow some more useful information to be provided.
