Question: How do you go about improving the appearance of asymmetrical lips? Is an injectable filler used for it?
Answer: There are many options for improving the appearance of asymmetrical lips. One of my special areas of interest is lip rebalancing. I use this term to refer to procedures which restore symmetry and balance of the lip in relation to the face. In cases of asymmetry of the lip due to trauma, a previous infection or allergic reaction, I generally favor a surgical approach. The advantage of a surgical approach is that it requires a single procedure and this can be very cost effective. It also does not require a repeat injection of materials into the lip. Once the surgery is complete, the chance of symmetry or restoration of symmetry is very high and there’s a permanent result.
