Featured Image

Facial asymmetry is a common concern for many people. While minor differences in facial features are normal, prominent asymmetry can be distracting and lead to feelings of self-consciousness. Now, state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures like a facelift in Las Vegas can correct asymmetry and improve your overall appearance.

Dr. Terrence "Terry" Higgins and Dr. Andrew G. Silver understand that symmetry plays an important role in how you look. Call Plastic Surgery Vegas to learn more about facelift surgery and how it works. Our team is committed to providing top-quality treatments that help patients feel confident and happy.

What causes facial asymmetry?

There are several factors that contribute to facial asymmetry, including genetics, injury or trauma, and lifestyle habits. Some people are born with naturally uneven features, while others may develop asymmetry over time due to external factors.

In some cases, the issue may be more noticeable on one side of the face than the other. This can be a result of differences in bone structure, muscle development, or fat distribution. Though not a medical concern, facial asymmetry can greatly impact your self-esteem.

How does a facelift help?

A facelift (rhytidectomy) is designed to manage moderate to severe signs of aging. However, not many people are aware that a facelift can also improve facial symmetry. Here's how:

  • Remove excess skin: Sometimes, one side of the face appears more aged due to sagging areas of skin. Dr. Higgins or Dr. Silver can remove the excess tissue so your face appears balanced and proportionate.
  • Redistribute fat: As we age, facial fat tends to shift and accumulate in certain areas. During facelift surgery, our team members in Las Vegas, NV, can reposition and redistribute fat to achieve more symmetry.
  • Tighten underlying muscles: In some cases, the muscles on one side of the face may be weaker or looser than the other. Plastic Surgery Vegas uses cutting-edge techniques to tighten and lift these muscles.

Who is a candidate for this cosmetic procedure?

To determine if a facelift can address your facial asymmetry, schedule a consultation with Dr. Higgins or Dr. Silver. During this appointment, they will assess your specific concerns and suggest the best possible course of action moving forward.

Remember that the primary goal of any cosmetic procedure is not to achieve perfect symmetry but to enhance your natural appearance. Collaboration with skilled professionals will ensure you make the most informed decision possible.

Which facelift procedure is right for me?

Our team offers a range of facelift options to fit your unique goals. For example, if you have minimal signs of aging around the mouth and jawline, a mini facelift may be suitable. A lower facelift is ideal for the chin and neck region. For more extensive corrections, a traditional full facelift may be recommended. Regardless, you can experience outstanding results and a renewed sense of self.
