Correcing facial asymmetry
The asymmetries can be easily masked with facial fillers and I think this will give you a very nice result. It will take several treatments to achieve the best symmetry and you will have to periodically reinject, but this, in my opinion, is the best option for you.

- You do have slightly more than usual facial asymmetry.
- Ask your GP to refer you to a Plastic Surgery consultant with experience in craniofacial surgery.

- If there is not, you can balance your lower face with fillers without the cost or risk of major surgery.

Modest craniofacial asymmetry should not be treated surgically.
