I have assymetrical lips like Lana Del Rey. Its not my teeth or jaw or anything thats behind it, its the shape of my lips. One side kind of sloops a bit lower and the other one is upturned. I tried fillers but they just give volume and do not adress the “crookedness”. When I smile it looks pretty symeteical.

Correcting Crooked Lips

 
Hi and thank you for sharing your question here! No face is completely symmetrical and we all have some levels of asymmetry in our face and body, including the lips. If the degree of asymmetry in the lips reaches a level that becomes an issue to the patient, it can be best corrected by a combination of Botox and fillers injected skillfully in and around the lips and mouth. For best results, it is very important to do this slowly and gradually and in small steps, to make sure there is no over-correction on one side which might exacerbate the issues. I hope it helps and good luck!
