The Cause Of The Right Cheekbone Looks Bigger Than The Left Cheek?
Hello doctor, I have a different cheekbone shape. My right cheek looks bigger than my left cheek. I once fell from the motor to the right and hit my cheek on the asphalt. At that time, my right cheek was only slightly scratched, but it was quite painful. From that incident, I felt my right cheek looked bigger. I thought, just an ordinary bruise and it will heal. But now, my right cheekbone feels different from the left. I was afraid like my friend who had one big cheek and got surgery. But if my friend, I do not know the cause. Is this dangerous? Explanation please,
Hello, thanks for the question.
The asymmetrical face can affect one's appearance and confidence. The cause of this asymmetrical face can be caused by several things, such as jawbone imbalance due to trauma, excessive laughter, disease, inflammation, etc. Trauma or injury to the facial area can cause a dislocation / displacement of the jaw joint or a fracture / fracture of the jawbone which can cause the face to become asymmetrical. In addition, swelling of one side of the face can also be caused by inflammation of the salivary glands (parotitis), inflammation of the lymph nodes, inflammation of the ear, and so forth. To be sure, you should consult a doctor. The doctor will conduct a direct examination on the patient and additional examinations such as blood tests, x-rays, etc. as needed. Handling will be adjusted to the cause of the complaint. If it is only caused by normal inflammation, the doctor may only prescribe medicines to treat the inflammation, but if the complaint is caused by an interference with the bone such as a broken or displaced bone, the doctor may need to take certain medical measures to overcome the condition, one of which can be with operation method. We recommend warm compresses on the swollen area 3-4 times a day for 10-15 minutes, avoid sequencing the swollen area, avoid moving the jaw excessively, eating healthy and nutritious foods, exercising regularly, and fulfilling fluid needs, and avoiding stress cigarettes and alcohol.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
