Perlane) and Radiesse to the jaw line and mandibular angle to the right side of your face to achieve a bit more shape and symmetry. If the masseter muscle is much larger, on the left, then some Botox can be used to further even this out. Hope this helps.
Treatment for jaw asymmetry: fillers vs botox
Fillers require a more skilled hand and eye to achieve the intended result. Finding the right provider is the key to getting a good result. This may require a series of injections, depending on your budget, but you can likely improve the difference with fillers, and possibly may need a neurotoxin (botox or dysport) as well.

How can I fix my jaw asymmetry?
Thanks for your question.
You have a more pronounced amount of jaw asymmetry than some but this doesn't make you unusual. We all have this issue in some fashion.
I always ask my patients about which side they like better.
For you, if you like the narrower side better than you will need to consider Botox usage to the wider side's Masseter muscle. The will decrease muscle mass and narrow the back of the jawline at the ear. Once this is maximized, you may still require further narrowing, and this is where mandibular bone shaving comes in to play. Because your teeth need some place to anchor, though, you can't go crazy with bone shaving.
If you like the wider side, you can start with filler along the jawline, such as Radiesse. You can go one step further and place a silicone mandibular implant to closely match the contours of the wider side.
I recommend that you consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon with a background in cranio-facial surgery to discuss your options further.
You will never be 100% symmetric, but you can close the gap on your current asymmetry.
Many facial asymmetries can be remedied with facial fillers and Botox. Please consult a specialist in cosmetic injections for the best results. Best, Dr. Green
