My upper lip lift surgery was performed only 3 days ago, but my swelling is going down now & I see asymmetry where my right upper lip is higher than my left upper lip in how it was pulled up w/stitches. This makes my mouth look off kilter w/how my nostrils line up. My mouth tilts to one side by about 1/4". The cupid's bow is about 1/4" to the right of the center of my nostrils. When I woke from surgery before swelling began, I could see the same asymmetry, but nurse said not to worry.
Common to Experience Asymmetry in with an Upper Lip Lift Procedure During Healing?

Early Subnasal Lip Lift Results
At just 3 days after surgery, your final lip shape is far from being evident particilarly in regards to symmetry. This is an issue that must wait a full three months after surgery before giving it a critical review.
