Juvederm Asymmetry of Injections
The asymmetry of the lips is an easy fix from a skilled injector. i would consult an experienced dermatologist with facial injections, particularly the lips, to correct your injections. Best, Dr. Green
What I don't understand is Juvederm injected a year ago in the lips where there is so much movement of the lips is unlikely to still be present. Have you had additional filler since then? If not, are you sure you did not have any asymmetry beforehand? It is very common for patients not to notice asymmetry in their faces until after fillers are placed.
Do you have good before and afters? The before picture i see is at an angle and unfortunately does not show the side that is having the issue well. Straight ahead pictures with and without smiling would be helpful in determining if there was asymmetry beforehand.
Assuming this is filler related, the simplest way to fix your lips is to inject a small pillow of filler into area #2. Area #1 is not typically filled in someone with your lip structure and cutaneous lips. Please follow up with a board certified Dermatologist for further evaluation and management.
