Facial asymmetry is a common concern that affects many individuals, impacting their self-confidence and overall appearance. At Harley Street Aesthetics in London, I understand the importance of addressing facial asymmetry through effective plastic surgery solutions.

In this article, I'll explore the causes of facial asymmetry, common facial cosmetic procedures used to correct it, and the transformative results that can be achieved.

Understanding facial asymmetry

Facial asymmetry refers to the lack of symmetry or proportion between the two sides of the face. It can manifest in various ways, including differences in the size, shape, or position of facial features such as the eyes, nose, cheeks, and chin.

While minor asymmetry is normal, significant imbalances can be noticeable and affect one's facial harmony.

Causes of facial asymmetry

Facial asymmetry can result from a combination of genetic factors, developmental abnormalities, trauma, or medical conditions.

For example, congenital conditions like hemifacial microsomia or craniofacial syndromes can lead to asymmetrical facial growth.

Similarly, facial trauma or injury can cause structural changes that result in noticeable imbalances.

Plastic surgery solutions

Fortunately, plastic surgery performed by an experienced plastic surgeon offers a range of solutions to address facial asymmetry and restore facial balance.

Here at Harley Street Aesthetics, I utilise my three decades of plastic surgery experience to perform various procedures tailored to each individual's unique needs.

Some of these procedures include:


Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, is commonly used to correct asymmetries in the nasal structure. By refining the size, shape, and alignment of the nose, rhinoplasty can help improve overall facial symmetry and proportion.

Facial implants

Facial implants can be used to augment various facial features, such as the cheeks or jawline, to achieve greater symmetry and definition. Customised implants are carefully placed to address specific areas of imbalance and create a more harmonious facial appearance.

Facial contouring

Facial contouring procedures such as the strategic use of botox and dermal fillers can help refine facial contours and address asymmetry caused by excess fat or volume discrepancies. These minimally invasive techniques yield natural-looking results and can significantly enhance facial symmetry.

Face lift

A face lift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing visible signs of aging in the face and neck. It involves tightening loose facial muscles, removing excess skin, and repositioning facial tissues to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


A neck lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to address sagging skin and excess fat in the neck area. By tightening the muscles and removing excess skin, a neck lift can restore a more defined jawline and a smoother, more youthful neck contour.


Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the eyes by removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. It can help reduce drooping eyelids, puffiness, and under-eye bags, resulting in a more alert and refreshed appearance.
