Fixing an Uneven Jawline

 
Hi and thank you for your question! No face is 100% symmetrical and we all have some levels of normal asymmetry in our face and body, but if reaches a level that bothers you it can be corrected. In your case, I would like to know if the unevenness is something new or if it has been getting worse, or if it has been like this since a ling time ago. This is important because sometime, superficial unevenness might indicate underlying issues which require further investigation. Otherwise, the jawline can be adjusted with injection of filler. Other treatments to consider include Kybella for under the jaw and possibly Botox for reducing the bulk of masseter muscle (if it is bulky). Non-invasive laser and radiofrequency treatments can also help with tightening the skin. I hope it helps and good luck!
