Are my lips really uneven? Should I just accept this is natural symmetry? Any advice appreciated. (photos)

15 days ago -juverderm 0.5ml mainly in my top lip. My lips have never been symmetric but I feel my top right is now alot bigger than the left and it is making me really self aware. (My bottom left has always been bigger than the right) went back the Practioner after 10 days- says my lip was naturally bigger on the right and that she wouldnt put more in the left as its not the natural symmetry and would make me look strange. Said she put equal amounts in each side of top lip also. Any Advice?

Lip Asymetry Is Common

Asymmetry in the lips is common and can be improved with fillers.  The lip liner may need alternate treatment. Please see an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Filler for asymmetric lips

Asymmetry in the face and lips are quite common.  Fillers can be used to reduce this effect.  For patients with existing asymmetry, this needs to be addressed by unequal filling.  For best results see an expert in facial injectables, it will be worth it.

Juvederm filler for lips

Part of your asymmetry is caused by your lip liner and if it is a permanent liner, it may be difficult to achieve symmetry of your lips.  Juvederm .5 ml is not a large amount of filler and you could use more to achieve better symmetry.  You may need to consult a cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

Asymmetric lips made worse with filler

Exact symmetry is not always possible but adding more to the upper left will improve this problem. I'd seek out another opinion.

Are my lips really uneven? Should I just accept this is natural symmetry?

Thank you for your question and series of photographs.  Natural asymmetry in the lips is a common reason for women to seek filler placement into the lips, and I think yours can be improved with additional placement into your upper left lip.  See a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in lip augmentation to improve upon your results.
