I have noticed that my face is uneven. 1 side of my face is abit lower than the other and it's most noticeable on my eyes and lips as one eyelid looks higher than the other. When i smile my lips look even but when iam not smiling and looking normal. you can notice that 1 side of the lip is lower than the other. I am only 26 yrs old so i think iam too young for a facelift to even it out. I personally feel like it might have something to do with my teeth being misaligned. can you give any advice

My face seems asymmetric
One side of my face lower than the other
Facial asymmetry is very common, and everyone has some degree of. A full set of pictures and usually in-person examination required to make a determination about performing any type of nonsurgical, or surgical procedures.
Every patient has asymmetries. The more we look in detail the more we will find. You are right in that it is often a bone structural difference in growth. Especially when it is noticed in someone young like your self. This can vary from jaw bone width to sinus depth and nasal bone symmetry.
As far as correcting this we have a couple of options. In my hands the most effective is probably fat transfer to build on what you already have. It would likely take two treatments though.
Hope this helps.
Best of luck,

Thank you for your question. Most people have some degree of facial asymmetry, and your concerns are not at all unusual. However, without any photos it is difficult to properly evaluate your individual needs and aesthetic goals. My best advice to you is to schedule a personal consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
A degree of asymmetry is typical. Depending on the underlying reason for the asymmetry, it may be corrected aesthetically. Some asymmetry may be an indication of a medical condition. Consult in person with an experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeon to understand your options.
