Lower lip Asymmetry and Correction
After several months you can have the asymmetry corrected by injecting a small amount of filler. I would definitely try this before I would attempt anything surgical. Be sure to consult an expert in cosmetic fillers and scars. Best, Dr. Green

Lip Fillers to Start
There is a very wide range of products currently available and the most usual component in modern wrinkle fillers is hyaluronic acid. This substance is found naturally in almost all body tissues. When injected as a filler, it is immediately effective in correcting creases and is slowly absorbed over 6-12 months. Earlier generations of fillers used collagen which was purified from animal tissue and these caused allergic reactions in some patients. Allergic reaction is a rare complication with the modern generation of hyaluronic acid fillers.
If that achieves the look you are after then great. Or you can look at something more permanent and get surgery or a lip implant.
