It this a : New problem? Is it obvious to others. What I am wondering is if u are overplaying a small variation, there is a type of paralysis called bells palsey or if you have a true malformation. If it is an issue a plastic surgeon, one who does facial reconstruction, would be most helpful. Then again u may need a diagnosis. Have u ever had one? ...Read more

Can braces to fix a posterior crossbite potentially make your jaw alignment look worse/more asymmetrical face?

Can braces to fix a posterior crossbite potentially make your jaw alignment look worse/more asymmetrical face?

Should help: Are you satisfied with the symmetry of your face now? Braces can change the shape of your face from profile and straight on. Usually, solving problems with your bite and straightening teeth helps with facial symmetry. Consult with your orthodontist and get a second opinion.

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.

As : As dr fleming stated, you would be better off having any surgery to your upper and lower jaws first, then the rhinoplasty. Are you sure you need jaw surgery? Have you consulted with an oral surgeon? An orthodontist? It appears you may need a team to work with you to get things just right. Consult with them first. Hope this info helps. ...Read more
