The left side of my face is quite wider than the right side. Asymmetrical face? (Photo)

Volumizing Fillers Can Work Well For Creating or Promoting Facial Symmetry
It appears from the photo that the right side of the face is somewhat flatter than the left and that greater symmetry might be achieved by a nonsurgical cheek augmentation and a nonsurgical jawline augmentation on the right side. In my Upper East Side Manhattan practice, I would use Voluma XC for both the cheek and jawline augmentations. In my Israel practice, where a far greater number of regulatory agency-approved products are available, I would opt to use Stylage XXL for the cheek augmentation for its smoothness and Restylane SQ for its delineation of the jawline.

Improving facial asymmetry with filler
It is common to have facial asymmetries like this, and I have seen quite a few people over the years with this. I would also suggest that when you sleep, you try to sleep more on your right side especially if you have just had the filler treatment on your left side. It is possible you were either chewing more on your right side to cause the right side to enlarge, or sleeping more on your left side (over many years) to cause the flattening and atrophy of that side.
