I recommend you go step by step
Sometimes I recommend to my patients that they consider having several procedures all at once. Your face, though, is already feminine, and I think that you may find yourself where you want to be after one or two smaller procedures. First, everyone has some facial asymmetry, and you are right that correcting significant asymmetry can make a face more attractive. Often this can be achieved with injectables - filler to widen the thinner side of the face, or botox to improve brow symmetry. It is important to remember that the goal is IMPROVED symmetry, not COMPLETE symmetry. A rhinoplasty may help to feminize your face. You can also make your forehead smaller, but the scar can take months to heal. Feminizing a face is more complicated than treating an isolated issue - like a big nose - and the best recommendations can be given in a face to face consult. Good luck. Bryan Rolfes, MD
