I know that some degree of facial asymmetry is normal and universal. However, the asymmetry of my eyes, ears, cheeks and lower jaw are all very pronounced to me. I recently in consultation with an orthodonist decided against major orthognathic surgery because it would only mask the differences in the lower jaw. Are there any less invasive procedures that would make a positive difference to my appearance? Thanks!

There are surgical and non-surgical options to balance out facial asymmetry, each with their own pros and cons. While everyone has some degree of facial asymmetry, it can be more evened out. Please consult with your board certified specialist to obtain the results you seek.
