How can I correct my uneven top lip? (photo)

My top lip has always bothered me because of how uneven it is. One side has more of a point to it, and the other side has more of a curve. The side with a point also appears fuller towards the corner of my lip and the rounder side seems to disappear near the corner. Overall, though, the side with the point is not as full as the side that is rounder. I like how my top lip is smaller than my bottom lip though and I would like to keep it that way. Is this possible to correct?

How can I correct my uneven top lip?

Thank you for your question and for sharing your photograph.  I see your areas of concern and do feel that the conservative placement of a thin dermal filler, such as Restylane Silk, will help achieve the added definition to your right upper lip while being able to achieve modest increases in your upper lip volume that does not impact the ratio of your upper to lower lip.  Hope this helps.

It is very common to use lip filler for asymmetry.  I see patients with your exact concern almost daily, and I have had great success using injectable fillers for subtle but very effective results.  Be sure to visit with an expert injector in your area that has experience with lip injections and you should be able to achieve your goals quite nicely.  Best Regards
