Asymmetry occurs when facial structures don’t perfectly mirror each other on both sides. It is normal for all faces to have asymmetry but can create a lack of balance aesthetically when it’s pronounced it. The causes of asymmetry range from genetics to subtle nerve damage from childhood injuries, viruses or vascular events. There is a variety of severity ranging from very subtle to quite noticeable.
Asymmetry can affect the eyes, mouth and smile as well as eyebrow position and can be noticed at rest or with facial movement. Fortunately, there are a variety of non-surgical procedures that can effectively treat many forms of facial asymmetry.
