What procedure can correct an asymmetrical face?

Good question : All faces have a small degree of asymmetry. Treatments for more obvious asymmetry are targeted at the cause: unequal muscle tone is usually treated with botox; whereas, bone structure deficiencies can be treated by adding volume with fillers, implants or reconstructive surgery. Significant developmental asymmetry affecting the whole skull should be evaluated by a specialized craniofacial surgeon.

No: As long as the skin is intact, there's really nothing to worry about. It's better to keep the area clean, if possible. Good luck!
