I love the left side of my face, it’s the only side i can be on when i take pictures with people in order to look good. my right side on the other hand is extremely ugly to me, to the point that it is all i think about all day, & sometimes i even refuse to sit on the side of people that are going to see my right side. it makes me look extremely asymmetrical & almost sad & i HATE IT! i need to know how to fix if ASAP

Correcting Crooked Smile

 
Hi and thank you for sharing your question here! No face is 100% symmetrical and it’s just part of the natural individual beauty, but when the degree of asymmetry reaches a level that is bothering you, it’s time to take action. You posted pictures when smiling, but it might also help to know if there is any major asymmetry when you are not smiling (neutral expression). Obviously any corrective treatments need to account for both state of expression (neutral and smiling). Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used skillfully to reshape the lips. In your case, corners of mouth can also be adjusted by Botox or other treatments. Overall, I think you can achieve good improvements if you would with an experienced physician. I hope it helps and good luck!
