I had Bell's palsy when I was 13, and then again when I was 16. The only issue I have with it is my uneven smile. Is there any way that I can even out my smile, procedure wise?

Lip lift after bells palsy
- A one-sided lip lift might be helpful.
- But you need a careful examination before anything is done.
- In addition to the slight asymmetry when your smile shows your teeth, the nostril on that side is much higher.
- It isn't clear if this is from muscle pull or underlying anatomy - so please have a consultation with a thorough plastic surgeon before any treatment.
