Q. Can I get better symmetry of my face with Dermal Fillers?
A. When patients come to see Dr. Dean Kane, board certified plastic surgeon in Baltimore who is an expert injector, so many men and women have concerns that their faces are not equal or symmetric on both sides of their faces. They are generally focused that their cheeks are not equally proportion or their lips are thin on one side, but not the other. Men are concerned with their jawlines that it is not projected enough. Both men and women are concerned that their eyebrows are not the same height or arched the same. Most patients are looking for a non-surgical rejuvenation of their faces to correct for these asymmetries.
Dr. Kane recognizes his patients concerns and relies on Injectables such as Restylane and Radiesse dermal fillers as well as Botox, Jeuveau (the #Newtox) and Dysport as neuro-modulators for the brows. Other options include fat transfers as well as Sculptra Treatments to achieve asymmetries of the face.
Being an expert in surgical face and neck lift surgery for over 30 years, he has a strong understanding of the anatomy of the face. This surgical experience is what makes him an exception expert injector for non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Kane takes in-depth time to examine and evaluate his patient’s asymmetry to determine the best use of the fillers and neuro-modulators to help achieve his patient’s symmetry. He also explains to his patients that everyone is born with structure asymmetries and injectables will help mask and camouflage the asymmetry but they won’t correct them 100%.
Dr. Kane uses the dermal fillers in the cheeks and jawlines to build out and plump the areas that look deficient compared to the opposite side. Restylane is used in the cheeks while Radiesse is used along the boney area of the jawline.
To gain better symmetry of the eyebrows, Dr. Kane makes his patients move the muscles of the eyebrows up, down and squeezed together so that he can determine just where to inject the Botox, Dysport and NewTox to rebalance the muscles so that they work in a more symmetric movement. He tries to give his patients a beautiful arched eyebrows (a non-surgical brow lift) to stop the angry ‘11’ s wrinkles between the brows and soften the crows feet as well as horizontal lines across the forehead.
When there is an entire asymmetry from one side of the face to the other, Dr. Kane will transfer fat taken from the person’s body by liposuction and completely fill in the side of the face to match the other side. Another option is to use multiple sessions of Sculptra Treatments to stimulate the patient’s own collagen and elastin to plump out the side of the face that is smaller.
If you have concerns regarding asymmetries of your face, you are in good company, because everyone in this world has differences between their left and right sides of their bodies and faces. Dr. Kane would be happy to provide you with a complete understanding of how he can help you achieve better symmetry using the dermal fillers, Botox, Sculptra and Fat Transfers.
