How can I fix my non - symmetrical face ?

Your face is fine: Bradley Cooper is lopsided. Do you think he cares? So is every other male and female celebrity. Look around you. Nobody cares about a symmetrical face. Somebody's told you something to make you unhappy, and in doing so they did you a grave disservice. People notice how you move, what you can do, how you talk, and especially whether you're fit.

Assymetry: Mild facial assymetry is normal. If there is a new onset of assymetry you should get evaluated for a neurologic problem such as a Bells Palsy or or swelling such as from salivary glands, allergies, etc. Most likely the swelling is noticeable mostly to you, If you are really unhappy with your appearance you can always seek help from a facial plastic surgeon who can remodel your face.

What can I do if my face is not symmetrical?

What can I do if my face is not symmetrical?

Plastic surgeon: Most of us are not symmetrical. Compare your right and left thumb and you will see if you are right handed that thumb will be bigger. Your jaw muscles become overactive on one side and underactive on the other. Sometimes the asymmetry is from skeletal crossbites which need a dentist to correct. Make an appt. And find out your cause.

I noticed that my face shape is not symmetrical can it be corrected?

I noticed that my face shape is not symmetrical can it be corrected?

Yes: Yes, but most likely it will take surgery (possibly plastics), orthodontics (if jaw asymmetry is evident) or a combo of both. No worries, just get more information via consults and education before you pull the trigger. Connect with my Virtual Practice on Healthtap for any dental questions with my special keycode: DFWMCQ!

Will Invisalign for crossbite help make my face look more symmetrical?

Will Invisalign for crossbite help make my face look more symmetrical?

Probably not: Invisalign is OK for some tooth movement but in order for orthodontics to really affect your facial shape, orthognathic surgery and multiple specialty involvement is usually necessary for adults. Functional orthodontic appliances can do more in younger kids but they aren't useful much past puberty.

Light brown flat spot on right side of head near hairline not perfectly round but kinda symetrical about the size of a pencil eraserwhat could it be?

Light brown flat spot on right side of head near hairline not perfectly round but kinda  symetrical about the size of a pencil eraserwhat could it be?

Nevus?: sounds llike a brown nevus, or what people call a "birthmark". It sounds like it is flat, small and does not have discoloration or different colors or dark colors in it. These are all good characteristics and you should not worry about this lesion too much. However if it grows over time, if color changes, if it becomes raised, then consult physician.

.4mm uniform symmetrical blue mole (I think) on face. The skin around it looks lighter than my normal skin. Does this sound normal?

Likely benign: As a general rule, lesions that are uniform in color, stable in size and uniform in shape are USUALLY benign. Skin cancers tend to be irregular in size, shape and color and may grow noticeably. However, if you are concerned about a lesion, especially on your face, see a dermatologist and consider biopsy/excision.

I've noticed that my 2 yo has a lumpy back of head. Lump seem to be symmetrical/hard.Flat spots in certain areas and lumps in others. Is this normal?

I've noticed that my  2 yo has a lumpy back of head. Lump seem to be symmetrical/hard.Flat spots in certain areas and lumps in others. Is this normal?

I'd have to examine: Kids do have some lumpy areas on the skull.Some are a prominence of the normal occipital ridge, some are lymph glands that are prominent because they are not buried in muscle of other tissue like they are in the rest of the body. I'd have to examine it to be sure but most "lumps" are benign if they are not tender.

Impacted wisdom teeth removed 8 mo. Ago. Noticed face is no longer symmetrical after. Does removal of wisdom teeth affect shape of the face? Why do some dentists say "yes" and others say "no"?

Impacted wisdom teeth removed 8 mo. Ago. Noticed face is no longer symmetrical after. Does removal of wisdom teeth affect shape of the face? Why do some dentists say "yes" and others say "no"?

No: This should have no bearing on your facial structure there are many other structures (bony - zmc-zygomatico-maxillary complex, mandible; muscular -masseter, buccinator & overlying soft tissue) & the presence or absence of an erupted or impacted wisdom tooth is inconsequential). One exception - I have seen one case when the buccal fat pad was violated & was removed unilaterally with slight assym.

Could you really symmetricalize your face by relaxing your face?

Could you really symmetricalize your face by relaxing your face?

No: Life's difficult enough without people making things up and suggesting them to others. Somebody's trying to make you worry about smoething foolish. Common sense itself will tell you this won't change bone structure, which is always a bit asymmetric. It's part of the beauty of being who you are. Who cares about having a symmetrical facein any case?
