My left upper lip is bigger than my right upper lip, can it be fixed?

Thank you for your question and photographs.  Correction of subtle volume differences between lips or within the same lip can be effectively performed with a dermal filler.  I tend to recommend the hyaluronic acid based family and because of the volume needed to match your left upper lip I would recommend Juvederm Ultra Plus.  Hope that this helps.

My left upper lip is bigger than my right upper lip, can it be fixed?

Hello, and thank you for the question. It is possible to make the lips more symmetric with filler. In general, I like to use Juvederm for the lips. It is very soft, and yields a great looking and natural result. From here, I would recommend a consult with a board certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or facial plastic surgeon; each is a fantastic choice. I hope this information helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Asymmetric lips fix

It is possible to make them more symmetric with filler. To get them exactly the same is often not possible. I think that using needles with the filler will give more accurate placement and better outcomes in this situation.
