facial skeletal hypertrophy
Just found out the all bones in face under PWS demonstrating overgrowth (nose, cheek bone, maxilla) and face assymetric. Anyone else experiencing this? I am in mid-30s. Any treatments suggested that helped to slow down this process?

I would pose that question to Dr. Nelson. You can get in touch with him here:

Let us know what you find out!

Hi all, New to the organization, so not sure I am doing this correctly. But, I have noticed lots of changes with my teeth I think- how does one know the bones showing overgrowth? What were your symptoms. I am finding now at 43 things are popping up that I didn't realized were related to my large facial PWS.
