Asymmetry of Facial Soft Tissue

Skin and soft tissue covering the structures of the face, jaw, and eye can be affected in patients with AM.  In certain cases, asymmetry can be improved by transferring fat, bone, or muscle from other parts of a patient’s body to the face in minimally invasive procedures, which may not only improve looks but also function.  Pediatric plastic surgeons and/or craniofacial plastic surgeons with knowledge of atresia and microtia are best suited to treat these abnormalities. Patients with a syndrome or hemi-facial microsomia frequently benefit from use of these advanced techniques.
