Facial Asymmetry

Facial Asymmetry

Facial Asymmetry can be due to abnormal development of the soft or hard tissues of the face. Most commonly, surgical correction of facial asymmetry is directed at normalizing facial proportion by addressing over- or under- growth of one side of the face or jaw bones; this may involve corrective jaw surgery, TMJ surgery or soft tissue manipulation. Your surgeon will help you understand if your child is a surgical candidate and what specific procedure meets your child’s unique needs.
