How I can correct my asymmetry of cheeks? Or is it my jaw?
- Cheek augmentation with cheek implants to add angularity to the cheeks and mid face. This would be combined with liposuction to reduce the excess facial fat to further define the cheek shape.
- Chin augmentation, using a chin implant, to add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. A weak chin creates an imbalance making the nose appear larger, the mid face top heavy and the lower face look short that de-emphasizes the lips and allows early formation of a double chin. Chin augmentation using a chin implant will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face.
I have found that placement of a silastic chin implant, through a small curved incision under the chin (also allows excess skin removal) to be very safe, quick, highly effective and far less invasive than a sliding genioplasty. I perform chin implant surgery in 30 minutes or less, often using a local anesthetic alone. In my opinion, you are a good candidate for chin implant surgery.
- Augmentation of the mandibular angles using a dermal filler (jaw implants have too many unwanted side effects IMHO) to add volume, angularity and flare to the jaw line.
Thank you for your question and pictures - you have discovered something that not many do. That is, that our faces are not perfectly symmetrical from one side to the other. Perfect symmetry, while desirable, ends up looking "fake" (leading to the uncanny valley effect). What you are concerned with can easily be corrected and improved upon with fillers. You can use different types for different issues - your cheek asymmetry can be corrected with voluma or rest lyft, while fine contouring along the jaw line can be done with juvederm ultra plus or restylane. You can also use sculptra as needed. That being said, nothing is better than going and seeing a doc in person as then they can do a full physical exam and give you an idea of what can be done for best results. Best of luck!
