Lip Augmentation treatment (using a filler such as Restylane) can help
even out asymmetry in the lips to some degree. It’s important that you realize that aiming for complete symmetry of any
part of the face is often very difficult, if not impossible.Your goal with this procedure should be
improvement rather than perfection. It
is a quick procedure done in the office that lasts approximately 3-5 months on
average. Before the procedure, I numb the area to increase comfort. The lips can be one of the most sensitive
areas when injecting. Please note that
lips may swell after injection, but this will subside within a day or two. I suggest finding an injector who has years
of experience and great patient reviews. I hope this helps!
Fixing your smile would be a combination of fixing your teeth through a cosmetic dentist and fillers such as Restylane into your lips. Before getting injected into your lips I would consult an orthodontist since your bite itself may be affecting your smile.
How long ago did you do your filler? It's not uncommon, to experience uneven/assymetrical swelling after filler and can last up to 1-2 weeks for swelling to resolve. If it has been longer than that, I would advise you to see your provider so he/she can either add more filler or dissolve some filler. Good luck.
Before getting anything
done to your upper lip, it would be advisable to get your teeth corrected
first. A temporary result could be Juvaderm injections.
Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane can enhance lips and make them more symmetrical. If you are still unhappy with your smile after fillers, consider consulting a cosmetic dentist for assessment of your teeth.
I would first use a filler to try and even out the asymmetry of your lips. If still not satisfied than a minor surgery or lip lift operation...
first of all, she'll good that you have great lips with nice fullness. They are very attractive
if he wanted to temporarily help them be more even you can use filler conservatively in strategic areas of the lips.
Primarily I would say this is a dental issue that can be corrected.
best of luck

First, the tooth needs to be fixed by a dentist because that is probably pushing on your lip a bit. Second fillers can be used to lessen the disparity between the two.
This problem can be approached using a combination of a lip filler such as Belotero in combination with a small amount of Botulinum toxin on the affected side which would reduce show of the tooth. See a physician well versed in the administration of fillers and toxin.
Hi JB. We would use Restylane to fix the issue. Adding a bit of Restylane to the right portion of the upper lip should bring the two sides closer in shape and size to create the look you are striving for.
