Facial asymmetry does exist in general population as an innate equity and contributes to the uniqueness of an individual. Absolute facial symmetry of two halves of the face is a rare occurrence, some degree of right and left variation is not an exception. Management of facial asymmetry varies with the age and clinical features of the patient. A case of unilateral condylar hyperplasia on right side, with prognathic mandible was reported to the department. Detailed history, clinical examination, and radiographic (cephalometric) evaluation was carried out and a comprehensive management was designed, which included presurgical orthodontics, surgical procedures (condylectomy, bilateral sagittal split osteotomy, and lefort I osteotomy) followed by postsurgical orthodontics. This case report highlights the interdisciplinary mode of management in treating facial asymmetries for better results.
