How it works
Concerned about facial asymmetry? Does your face look unbalanced in photos? While slight facial asymmetry is normal, significant asymmetry can unfortunately be eye catching.
Facial symmetry injections are a proven way to correct asymmetry and improve your appearance. We use a combination of dermal fillers, muscle slimming, and anti-wrinkle injections. The most common areas we treat for asymmetry are the eyebrows, lips, cheekbones, and jawline.
Our experienced team will assess your facial asymmetry and design a personalised treatment plan. They will target your facial symmetry concerns with precision and expertise.
Enjoy a more symmetrical face after facial symmetry injections. Benefits of this treatment include:
- Quick, no downtime treatment
- Areas treated with dermal fillers have an immediate, fully reversible result
- Can treat asymmetry overall or of specific facial features such as:
Preparation & aftercare
To ensure your facial symmetry treatment goes to plan, follow our preparation guidelines:
- Remove all makeup immediately before your appointment
- Shave/closely trim the treatment area where applicable the day before your appointment
- Avoid consuming excessive alcohol within 24 hours of your appointment
- Refrain from intense exercise immediately before your appointment
After your facial symmetry treatment, proper aftercare is crucial for optimal healing and results:
- Avoid makeup, excessive alcohol and intense exercise until the following day
- Gently apply a wrapped ice pack to the treated areas to minimise swelling and bruising
- Refrain from applying pressure to the treated areas for 7 days where dermal filler has been injected and 4 hours for areas treated with anti-wrinkle injections
- Mild discomfort and swelling in the treated areas is to be expected
- Small lumps related to local swelling may occur and will resolve over a few weeks
- After anti-wrinkle injections, you may notice small bumps at the injection sites which will resolve over 15 minutes

Facial asymmetry results from the way your face develops as an embryo. Each side of your face forms separately and fuses in the middle.
Facial asymmetry occurs due to differences in the shape of the facial bones, volume of facial fat, strength of facial muscles, and the overlying skin.
Facial asymmetry can be more pronounced in some people, and worsen with facial injury and ageing.
Many treatment options exist to improve facial symmetry.
While perfect symmetry is unattainable, we cab use cosmetic injectables to achieve noticeable improvements in facial asymmetry.
Sleeping on your face does not significantly contribute to facial asymmetry.
Facial asymmetry results from genetics, ageing, trauma, and lifestyle.
After cleaning and numbing your skin, we use fine needles or blunt-tipped cannulae to precisely place dermal filler, anti-wrinkle and muscle slimming injections.
Facial symmetry injections have very minimal discomfort.
The time it takes to see a result from facial symmetry treatments depends on the treatment type.
Dermal fillers give an immediate result.
Anti-wrinkle injections take 2 weeks to work.
Muscle slimming injections develop over 6 weeks.
To prepare for facial symmetry injections you should avoid intense exercise and alcohol before your appointment.
You should also ensure that you closely shave or trim any facial hair (where appropriate) the day before your treatment.
After having facial symmetry injections, you should take it easy, avoiding alcohol and intense exercise for a few days.
You need to refrain from applying pressure to the injected areas. Allow 7 days for dermal filler, and 4-6 hours for areas treated with anti-wrinkle and muscle slimming injections.
When performed by an appropriately qualified and experienced cosmetic practitioner, facial symmetry treatments are safe.

Why is my face uneven?
An uneven face is natural, and related to the way our face develops in utero. Some people naturally have more symmetrical faces than others, while others have significant asymmetry that can make them feel self-conscious. A number of things can make facial asymmetry worse, such as smoking, injury and ageing, as can certain medical conditions like Bell’s palsy. The number one cause of facial asymmetry aside from genetics is which side you chew on. This changes the position of your jaw, and makes one side of your face more muscular than the other.
The only natural way to improve facial symmetry is to try and chew using both side of your jaw. By looking after your skin and overall health, you can also slow down the progression of facial asymmetry that occurs with age.
Why is my jaw uneven?
Everyone has an uneven jaw because the prefer to chew on one side of their face. This causes an enlargement of the chewing muscles of mastication (mainly the temporalis and masseter muscles), which can slowly adjust the position of your jaw bone. You can naturally improve jaw asymmetry by chewing on both side of your jaw. As an alternative you can consider masseter slimming injections and temporalis slimming injections to slim the larger side of your face.
Why are my eyebrows uneven?
Most people have uneven eyebrows. The position of your eyebrows is determined by the shape of your brow bone and the strength of your frontalis forehead muscles. Changes in eyebrow hair distribution and thickness can also affect eyebrow symmetry.
Why are my lips uneven?
All lips are asymmetrical, although some people have more uneven lips than others. The symmetry of your lips is determined by the distribution of your red lip on each side, the underlying lip volume, your teeth, and the muscle strength on each side of your face. As there are so many factors contributing to lip symmetry, it is impossible to have perfectly even lips.
Why is my chin uneven?
An uneven chin is most often caused by mal-position of your mandible (jaw bone) and underlying dental issues. While surgery can be used to improve symmetry, chin filler is a non-surgical, no downtime treatment option to correct chin asymmetry. While perfect chin symmetry is not possible, improving an uneven chin can help to make your face appear more attractive.
How dermal fillers help with face symmetry
Dermal fillers can achieve significant improvements in facial symmetry. Dermal fillers add structural volume enabling us to reshape facial features. When used appropriately, this allows your cosmetic injector to match the weak (treated) side, with the stronger side. Dermal filler can improve symmetry in almost all areas of the face on the weaker side. If you want your larger, more prominent side to match the weaker side, fillers cannot help. Muscle-slimming injections are a better option in this case.
This before and after demonstrates the results of facial symmetry injections using dermal filler to multiple parts of the face.
How anti-wrinkle & muscle slimming injections help with face symmetry
Anti-wrinkle injections can improve symmetry by raising or lowering certain facial features. As they work by relaxing facial muscles they can adjust eyebrow height, change the position of your mouth corners, and add height to your lips. Treating one side allows for an improvement in symmetry.
Muscle-slimming injections (the same product used for anti-wrinkle injections) can be administered to the masseter muscles along the jawline or the temporalis muscles in the temples. This weakens the treated muscles, reducing their size. By treating one side, or treating one side more extensively, symmetry can be improved. Muscle relaxing injections can make the larger side more similar to the smaller side, because they reduce muscle bulk.
What does a symmetrical face look like?
While symmetrical faces are seen as attractive, a perfectly symmetrical face can be quite uncomfortable to look at. Half-face mirroring studies found that humans find slightly asymmetrical faces to be the most attractive.
Faces with perfect symmetry are less attractive as they do not look real. Similar to the ‘uncanny valley’ effect when looking at life-like dolls.
Fortunately, perfect symmetry is not attainable with facial symmetry injections. However, with this no downtime treatment, you can achieve noticeable improvements in the symmetry of your face.
Facial Symmetry Injections in Sydney
Can you actually fix facial asymmetry? While normal, some people have pronounced asymmetry that affects their self-esteem. If you feel like your face is uneven, there are a number of tests for facial asymmetry you can do at home. The simplest is to take a photo with a good quality camera, directly at eye level, front on. Print it out, and measure out your features with a ruler. The key here is to take the photo as accurately as possible.
If you want to improve facial symmetry, then we can help. We offer the best facial symmetry treatment in Sydney, using non-surgical techniques. With a combination of dermal filler and muscle slimming injections, we can improve facial symmetry safely, and effectively.
