What to Do About Asymmetry After Quick Lift?

I am very unhappy with my Quick Lift results. My face whole face is now asymmetrical, despite that my doctor thinks I look great. I don't like that I have a hugh lateral sweep on the left side of my lower face and sagging skin on the right side of my face. He is willing to lift the right side with an incision around my sideburn. Pulling up in that area does lift my face. Will that work? He also want to inject Lipossolve into the lateral sweep to flatten it out. I don't think this will work. What are my other options? What else can I do?
I can see why you have concerns. If your surgeon cannot, I suggest your seek an alternative opinion as is your right. I would revise your lift free of charge if that was one of my results.
Asymmetry and concerns following Quick lift or Mini Lift
Without seeing your before pictures and after pictures from different angles as well as an exam I am unable to give you specific advice. However, I would urge you to seek a second opinion, especially as the recommendation of injecting Lipodissolve is generally unusual from board certified plastic surgeons as it is unpredictable in the extent of its action and final out come. See the below link to find a qualified second opinion.

Quicklift Revision is Best Performed by an Experienced Facial Plastic or Plastic Surgeon
Your asymmetry is definitely improvable, but I would highly recommend you consult with an experienced facial plastic or plastic surgeon. Revision lifts are less forgiving than primary lifts.
I can see no particular application for lipodissolve in lateral sweep.

Disappointing result after Quick Lift
I am sorry you are disappointed with your results. I would immediately seek out a plastic surgeon to discuss your options before they are made worse. Make sure your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Concerning plan by your doctor
I would at least get a consultation by a reputable surgeon before doing anything. Many surgeons offer free consultations, and my guess is that it may save you from a permanent issue on your face.
