Im looking to improve the appearance on my right (ON YOUR LEFT) to make my face more symmetrical with my left side (<-which Im perfectly fine with & dont want to touch). Overall my face looks noticeably asymmetric & crooked. Right (on your left) side is very narrow. Im seeking a permanent solution to fix. Fat graft transfer? Opinions/suggestions/thoughts? Note-CT scan showed no major asymmetry & maxillofacial surgeon told me its fat related. Also never needed braces, never had facial injury

Improving Facial Asymmetry
Your pictures with 1/2 the face covered may be misleading but I'm going to play devil's advocate and discourage you from having a procedure to improve your facial symmetry. Some degree of asymmetry is normal. Better pictures would be helpful in evaluating your contour.

Fat injection is best for major facial asymmetry
Fat injection (about 30 to 50cc is the ideal scenario for you. Other temporary injections of hyaluronic acid (example: Voluma, Restylane) are possible, but too expensive on the long term.
Fat Injections for Chin Asymmetry
Without a bony basis for asymmetry, fat grafting to one side of the chin is a reasonable option for improvement in asymmetry. Fat grafting is not always predictable so it is possible more than one injection session may be needed. But I would also not completely exclude a small implant placed on one side of the chin only, that is the one guaranteed method of volume retention.
