What procedure can correct an asymmetrical face?

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.

I'm a twin. Does anyone else have an asymmetric face?

Everyone does: Everyone's face is asymmetrical. If you look very closely you'll see one ear is higher than the other, one eye may be lower and the corners of your mouth maybe off, just to name a few.

Noticable super asymmetric face in one twin and not the other. Should I say something?

Noticable super asymmetric face in one twin and not the other. Should I say something?

About what?: The crowding of twins in the womb often result in some initial distortions in their newborn appearance that disappear with time after they are out of the confined space of the womb. Unless you are skilled in recognizing this, and understand it, your input is more likely to be seen as cruel and judgmental.

Do I have torticollis, I think I am missing my right SCM. I think this has caused a very asymmetrical face. How can this be treated.?

Neck Muscles Rx: First you need a diagnosis. If it is simply a matter of weak muscle, that can be made much stronger. First check your posture - use a mirror. Try the simple neck exercises at www. Grossaninstitute. Com If your torticollis persists, this is treatable.

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.

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.

Does plagiocephaly often correct itself? Or does my 2 1/2 yr. Old son need treatment? His head is very asymmetrical.

Does plagiocephaly often correct itself? Or does my 2 1/2 yr. Old son need treatment? His head is very asymmetrical.

Treatment: See your doctor about the treatment that is best for your son. One treatment option used in younger infants is a soft helmet that is put on the child's head to help correct the asymmetry. Unfortunately, by 2.5 years the helmet is less likely to be beneficial. There are options, however, that can be discussed with your doctor or a plastic surgeon for a 2nd opinion.

What is the most suitable treatment for sun touched face?

What is the most suitable treatment for sun touched face?

A sunburn?: If "sun touched" means a sunburn, it will fade over time. Hydrocortisone cream (HC 1% cream) is over-the-counter, and helps when used 2-3 times a day for 4-5 days on new mild sunburns. If the skin is blistered, cracked up, or oozing, one should see a primary doctor or a dermatologist. Hydrocortisone cream is ok to use on sunburned lips, and Aquaphor or plain Vaseline can be used on the lips too.
