Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Early Asymmetry Following Facelift

Dr. Dean Kane | Baltimore MDQ. What would be the solution if one side was more lifted than the other? I had a facelift and nose done four weeks ago. The doctor thinks the results will be pleasing at the end. I am concerned that the two sides of my face look so different. Could I still have good results looking like this at this moment?
