You need to get a copy of the CT on CD or film and consult with a facial plastic surgeon or specialist.  This is something that needs to be properly evaluated and treated.

It sounds like you need a facial plastic surgeon.

The CT report is no substitute for actually getting medical care.  You do not indicate where you live.  However, I recommend that you seek care from a fellowship trained facial plastic surgeon, or a general plastic surgeon who is fellowship trained in craniofacial surgery.
