Is it possible to gain symmetry between the 2 sides of my mouth?
Actually, you shouldn’t do anything about it, as a slight asymmetry makes the face interesting. If it does disturb you though, you will have to say when the minor trauma occurred. If it was just one or two weeks ago, you may rest assured that it’s a normal post-traumatic swelling that will disappear after 3 months at the latest. If the swelling is older than 3 months, you can have Restylane injected in the left upper lip to get the same swelling by the left upper lip and thus obtain a symmetry.
