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. ...Read more

Rhinoplasty before jaw surgery? I'm 23 and i want to get jaw surgery for my TMJ and asymmetrical face, but want to wait until i'm 25+ to get it. I'm planning to get rhinoplasty in a couple of weeks, but many have said to get your jaw surgery done first.
