Concerns about facial asymmetry
As a facial plastic surgeon, I can only comment on the following points: your crooked nose must certainly be corrected, i.e. straightened. In my opinion, the asymmetry of both your cheeks is so minimal that they don’t require correcting. The asymmetry of your eyes can also be seen, but in my opinion they also don’t require correction. It’s also like this in otoplasties where patients desire to have their ears as absolutely symmetrical as possible. However, that can neither be guaranteed with the traditional method, nor with the new stitch method of otoplasty. But that’s not bad, since we know that a slightly asymmetrical face looks interesting to an observer, whereas a totally symmetrical face appears rather boring.
