I have one cheek that is a lot thicker than the other and when I smile it doesn't move as much as the other one and is tighter. It has been like this my whole life and it's really starting to bother me because there's such a massive difference! It's mostly obvious when I smile but even when I have a straight face you can kind of see it. What can I do about this? Like, do I need to do some facial muscle stretches or is surgery necessary? Botox?

Facial asymmetry is common and can be improved with fillers
Facial asymmetry is common and can be improved with fillers - best to see plastic surgeon near you for an exam - but usually not difficult to make quite a difference with fillers
Without an examination, it is hard to say what I would do. You may be a candidate for fillers or cheek implants. Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) to discuss your expectations and concerns.
