Face symmetry procedures can help many people. Symmetry is very pleasing to the eye, and we perceive symmetrical faces to be inherently more attractive. However, few of us have perfect symmetry among our facial features. This asymmetry can be minimal, or it can be obvious to the point that it affects confidence and self-esteem.
For example, if your nose is noticeably off-center, or one of your eyebrows is significantly higher than the other, it is understandable that you may wish to correct the imperfection so you can feel more confident about your appearance.
A board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ary Krau can help restore balance and harmony to your face. Read on as he describes some of the procedures he relies upon to add symmetry to the face.
Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose to improve its attractiveness. Many cases of facial asymmetry are the result of a crooked, slanted or off-center nose. Rhinoplasty can center or straighten the nose as needed to enhance the appearance of the entire face.
Brow lift elevates low or heavy eyebrows. When one eyebrow sits higher than the other, it throws off the balance of the face. Brow lift surgery can subtly reposition the lower brow, bringing it in line with the other to improve facial symmetry.
Alternatively, injecting small amounts of Botox into the forehead can offer some improvement for asymmetrical brows. The injectable temporarily relaxes the muscle that drags that brow down. Unlike brow lift, which produces permanent results, the effects of Botox are temporary and wear off after three to six months (on average).
Facial fillers are injectable products that add volume and shape to features of the face. If one cheek appears larger or fuller than the other, it can throw off the proportions of the entire face. Adding volume to one or both cheeks can even out asymmetry between the sides of the face.
Many fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that plumps the target area and makes the skin look youthful and supple. Depending on the specific filler, results can last a few months up to a year or more.
Eyelid lift surgery tweaks the skin and fat of the eyelids to rejuvenate the eye area. If one eyelid appears droopier than the other, eyelid surgery can minimize the droopiness and gently lift that lid to bring both lids into alignment.
