Why is one side of my face angular and the other "shapeless"? (photo)

One side of my face has a nice fairly angular shape, but the other side is shapeless and ugly. I would like to get this asymmetry fixed, what would you reccomend I have done?

Pictures are limited to assess , you need in person examination and assess bone, soft tissue and muscle.

If there is no reason for the asymmetry, then fat graft may bring the two sides of the face to more symmetrical. Do not expect 100% symmetry, it is impossible.
