i have asymmetry in my face from a previous surgery is there a possiblity to reconstruct these little deformations in skull

Question: i have an asymmetry in my face from a previous surgery caused little deviation in eyes leveling.and alapse in left cheek.is there a possiblity to reconstruct these little deformations in skull?

Answer: somethings are possible and somethings are not. asymmetry is one of the hardest things to manage with satisfaction. in my consent forms i have “the two sides of the body are not the same and can never be made the same.” when people chase asymmetry they can get into problems. however, clearly if something is truly asymmetric by more than a few millimeters then that can be unattractive or disfiguring. whether that asymmetry that you have can be fixed or improve really requires an in-person consultation and discussion with a qualified facial plastic surgeon. i always encourage you to go back to your physician for evaluation to make sure that he has a chance to help you, as i certainly would want to know when a patient is dissatisfied so that i could help them.
