Asymmetrical Face - Makes Me Appear Angry, Please Help Me to Pinpoint the Problem Areas? (photo)

Please, I need some expert observations on the condition of my face, as it's been bugging me for a while not knowing exactly what is "wrong" or different about my face. Do I have "orbital dystopia"? I think I may also have Strabismus as it seems my eyes aren't aligned normally. Are there other things you may have noticed?

Diagnosis of facial asymmetry

You seem to have many concerns. Without a proper exam it is not possible to determine the cause or predict a treatment with any degree of certainty. The anatomy of the face is very complex and even more challenging is that the structure is different with every changing facial expression. You will get a  real solution by visiting with a board certified plastic surgeon. Most offer free or low cost consultations.

Although your photographs are unclear I think you need some fat grafting.  This will help even out an asymmetrical face. You may also need some small lifts in specific areas. You should see some Plastic Surgeons in your area for evaluation.

You might have ptosis or a droopy eyelid on the right side. You seem to be compensating by elevating your right eyebrow. To soften your look, you could consider filling your cheeks (through fat transfer), reducing your chin, and volumizing your forehead. A rhinoplasty to decrease the prominence of your nose could also soften your look.

Hard to tell what is making you look angry

It is more complicated than analyzing a few still photos.  In situation such as these, I find it best for patients to describe their top 3 concerns about their face.  This may help guide both you and the surgeon the best course of action to help you look "less angry".  I would recommend having a consultation and to focus on what your potential goals may be.

Assymetrical face

Facial fat grafying is amazinz for reshaping your face, cheeks and correcting deepset eyes. It is necessary to see an expert in fat grafting to do this. Your pictures arent good but the range of fat grafting procedures is so broad I'm sure it can help

Asymmetrical Face Concerns

Thank you for your photos. I don't see your situation as your face being "wrong" but there is some asymmetry. While facial asymmetry is natural and normal, I recommend you meet with a specialist who can meet you and evaluate your concerns in a three dimensional way. If the orbital appearance has changed from the way you appeared in the past, you should meet with an orbital specialist.

What you demonstrate in the photo is right upper eyelid ptosis.

With out a personal examination, I can address the other concerns.  I recommend that if this issue bothers you, consider seeing a fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon.  The American Society for Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery maintains a geographic directory of highly qualified surgeons on their website.
