Is There Beauty In Face Symmetry?

Face is the most distinguishable part in our body. Any kind of irregularity in them are easily noticeable. Face asymmetry can be define as dissimilarity in both halves of the face. It can affect the overall beauty depending upon its intensity. The basic reason for facial asymmetry is the dissimilarity in the skeletal system or bone structure, there are other reasons as well.  With the advent of procedures like face asymmetry treatment or surgery these are not an issue anymore.  

Types of face asymmetry 

  • Dental asymmetry - here the set of teeth on lower and upper jaw are asymmetric to each other, causing issues in chewing and talking. This needs surgical intervention in adults. In children below 4 years, it can be corrected through basic exercises. 
  • Skeletal asymmetry – mainly occurring as an asymmetry in jaws or cheeks. These can be corrected only by surgery , where the shape of face can be changed as well. 
  • Muscular asymmetry – it is an asymmetry of the muscular structure which causes disruption in functions. In this case the patient will feel  difficulty in chewing and other functions. 
  • Functional asymmetry – it is not found in common and requires advanced and complicated surgeries for correction.
