Hi Riska,


In general, the human body is not 100% symmetrical, but the differences are only slight and invisible. If there is a striking difference, the condition can be within normal limits, it can also be influenced by certain medical conditions. Some of the conditions that cause facial asymmetry include:

Congenital conditions
Abnormalities in bone structure and facial anatomy
History of bumps to the face
Bell's palsy and stroke
Poor shape of teeth and jaw

If you feel bothered by an asymmetrical facial condition, I suggest that you consult directly with a plastic surgeon so that further tests can be done to find out the condition of your face and possible treatments that can be done to overcome it, for example with plastic surgery. However, if the asymmetrical condition is caused by neurological disorders, the plastic surgeon can perform joint treatment with a neurologist and a medical rehabilitation doctor, whereas if there are problems with teeth and jaw, the doctor can refer to a dentist so that appropriate further treatment can be given.
