    Achieving symmetry: can lip fillers fix asymmetrical lips?

    Have you ever wondered how you can achieve more symmetrical lips? Asymmetrical lips are a common concern that can be genetic, or related to the ageing process. But can lip fillers fix asymmetrical lips? Here, we’ll explore how lip fillers can help you achieve balanced and proportioned lips.

    Understanding lip asymmetry

    Lip asymmetry explained

    Lip asymmetry refers to unevenness in the size, shape, and proportions of your lips. It’s natural for lips to be slightly uneven, and can become more noticeable with age. Asymmetry can affect your top and bottom lips, and it’s common for people to feel self-conscious about it.

    Causes of lip asymmetry

    • Genetics: some people are born with asymmetrical lips.
    • Aging: as we age, our lips may lose volume, causing unevenness.
    • Trauma or injury: accidents or injuries can can cause lip asymmetry due to scarring.
    • Teeth: the shape and position of your teeth can affect the symmetry of your lips.
    • Bone structure: your upper and lower jaw bones can influence the balance of your lips.
    • Facial muscles: most people have strong muscles on one side of their face. This contributes to lip asymmetry.

    The role of lip fillers in fixing asymmetry

    How lip fillers work

    Lip fillers are a volumising gel. We use lip fillers to improve shape and volume, and to create a more symmetrical appearance.

    Correcting Asymmetry

    Lip fillers can balance uneven lips. By placing them in areas of volume deficiency, lip fillers improve symmetry. The procedure is precise, allowing for small adjustments in areas of asymmetry.

    Can you achieve perfect lip symmetry with fillers?

    While lip fillers are a great option to improve symmetry, there are some limitations. Lip fillers are best for improving asymmetry related to volume. Other causes of asymmetry including your teeth, jaws and facial muscles can only be partially corrected with lip fillers.
