Is It Normal to Have a Cheek That is Pumped Out?

one side of my sisters( 17 years old) face is bigger than the other side. Some doctors said it was because she presses on her teeth on one side when she gets mad. some said she presses on her teeth when she is sleeping How can she get rid of it (make it normal again)?

             Pictures would help but if she has masseteric hypertrophy, Botox to the larger side could reduce the size of that masseter.  Another option would be filler or fat grafting to the smaller side.  Good luck.
