If someone's face is bigger on one side and smaller on the other side is it possible to make it even? If it is possible I wanted to know if there is a doctor that can be recommended for this procedure in Chicago or nearby. Thank you
Is It Possible to Make the Face Even?
Doctor Answers (4)
As part of the physical exam, I point out asymmetries of the face. Everyone has them. Attractiveness is measured by some facial asymmetry. Look at any model in the magazines.
Most people have one side of their face that is bigger than the other. It is very unusual to have a perfectly symmetric face. In most cases, the size differences can be masked with fat grafting or dermal fillers. However, if there is a large discrepancy, then you may need more extensive surgery to shift the underlying bony structure. Good luck.

Most faces are asymmetrical. Facial Plastic Surgeons spend most of their time "evening out" faces. Most of the time, fillers can be used to achieve the patient's goals, in some cases surgery may be necessary. I currently prefer Sculptra to restore symmetry to my patient's faces.
You are fortunate to have many fine facial cosmetic physicians in Chicago. Steven Dayan,MD, Julius Few, MD, Regan Thomas, MD, and RealSelf "All-Star" Otto Placik, MD are offices where I would start in the windy city after a Cub game of course. Good luck and be well.
