How to fix my crooked mouth? (photo)

I have a crooked mouth and want to know if anything can be done to make it look more symmetrical. I already plan on getting an upper lip lift to correct my long philtrum. I've looked at a lot of before and after photos of corner lip lifts from several different surgeons and none of them looked good. All corner lip lifts look unnatural and weird. I don't want to have a permanent creepy smile on my face. Is there anything else that can be done?

Thank you for asking about your lip lift.

Since you are having a lip lift, just have your surgeon do more lifting of the side where the lip is lower. This usually works nicely, if the measurements are precise.
