I would really like to know whats wrong with my face. To start, my nose is crooked. My lips are uneven. My jaw clicks on my right side if I open it past a certain point (which is uncomfortable sometimes when eating) and i have an uneven over-bite. My left eye also seems to droop more than my right and becomes smaller(its really obvious when I'm tired). I love my facial features and i wouldn't change anything about it, all I want is for it to be symmetrical. In other words, to look normal.

Treatment of Facial Asymmetry
When looking at your photo, it is clear that you have a mild facial asymmetry---perhaps this is simplifying the situation, but either your right side did not grow adequately, or your left side grew a bit moreso than the left. Accordingly, you notice the jaw issues, the crooked nose, and the drooping right eye. Ideally, corrective jaw surgery would be advised (and I recommend that you do see an Oral-Maxillofacial surgeon to discuss this as well as the clicking), but compromise procedures can "mask" the facial asymmetries. Rhinoplasty and facial implants to the right side (cheekbone and jaw) can do alot to make the face more symmetric. Additional soft tissue procedures can be very helpful as well.
