How to Fix Facial Asymmetry Without Surgery (From Home!)

  • by Matt Phelps

Some of the most beautiful and well-known people in the world have faces that aren't symmetrical, but no one seems to notice. 

Many people find facial asymmetry to be unique, charming, and attractive.

Not that any of this matters.

To be honest, you're the only one who has noticed your asymmetrical face. 

Has anyone actually said to you, "Did you know your face isn't symmetrical?"

Yeah, you have facial asymmetry.

That's just weird. In fact, no one has even taken note. 

Asymmetry is perfectly normal.

So get over it.

You've got better things to worry about, but that's fine. I'll show you how to fix it if you want to.

Don't lose sight of the big picture.

You are beautiful. Just the way you are.

Read on to learn more about some possible causes of an asymmetrical face, as well as treatments and home remedies.

What Is Facial Asymmetry?

When you look at someone's face and see that it is symmetrical, it means that each side has the same features. 

An asymmetrical face is one where one side is different from the other. 

For example, one eye might be bigger than the other, one cheekbone might stand out more, lips might not be the same size, eyes might be different heights, noses might be different sizes, teeth might be crooked, and so on.

What Causes an Asymmetrical Face?

To know how to fix it, you need to know what is causing your asymmetry and use the right tool to fix that problem.

If you don't, you'll only make things worse.

Let's take a look at some factors that cause asymmetry.

You should definitely pay close attention to all of them since you're most likely doing a combination of them.


1. Chewing on one side:

You would think that everyone would know not to do this, but people still do it. 

Should I be shocked if my right arm is larger and stronger than my left if I just work out my right arm at the gym?


So, when people chew on one side of their face, that side's muscle gets bigger and more defined, giving them an asymmetrical face.


2. Poor Posture:

This is the most frequent cause of facial asymmetry.

The average person's posture these days is awful.

And a side effect of that is asymmetry of the face.

Have you ever noticed that you only sleep on one side?

Unavoidably, there will be some degree of unevenness.

Make sure you sleep evenly on both sides or, even better, on your back.

The best way to sleep is on your back. 

When you sleep on your back, you can breathe more deeply and easily through your nose, which has many known health benefits.


3. Genetics

Sometimes a person's face isn't symmetrical because of how they were born or genetics. 

Some genetic health conditions, like cleft lip, palate, and vascular disorders, can cause features that aren't the same on both sides.


4. Sun Damage

As a person ages, UV rays can cause spots, patches, and moles to appear on the skin. 

Damage from the sun isn't usually the same all over the face, especially if you wear a baseball cap outside, work outside, or spend a lot of time driving. 

Damage from the sun can happen to one side or part of the face.


5. Smoking

Facial asymmetry has been linked to smoking, which makes sense given that the face is directly exposed to smoke's poisons.


6. Dental Work

Getting a tooth pulled out can make the muscles in your face look different.

You can also change the shape of your face by getting dentures or dental veneers. 

The result is not always the same on both sides.


7. Aging

As we get older, our faces become more asymmetrical.

This is just part of getting older.

Even though our bones stop growing when we reach puberty, our cartilage keeps growing as we get older.

As we age, our ears and noses grow and change, which can lead to asymmetry.


8. An injury

Asymmetry can be caused by trauma or injury to the face during childhood or adulthood.

A broken nose can make one side of the face look different from the other.

9. Bell's Palsy

A sudden difference in how your face looks is a sign of a more severe illness.

Bell's palsy is a paralysis of the nerves in the face, which makes the muscles on one side of the face weak all of a sudden. 

Bell's palsy usually only lasts for a short time.

It can happen after pregnancy or a viral infection. 

With Bell's palsy, the muscles on one side of the face are less able to move or can't move at all.

10. Stroke

Drooping of the face is a sign of a stroke.

If one side of their face goes numb, they should see a doctor immediately.

Other signs of a stroke are numbness or weakness in the arms and trouble speaking.

11. Torticollis

This is also called "twisted neck," is a condition in which the neck muscles are not in the right place.

Torticollis can happen in the womb, making the face look different when the baby is born.

People with weak eyes may tilt or twist their necks in different ways to see better.

This can make the muscles on one side of the neck stronger than the other.

Many cases of torticollis are short-term and get better on their own.

It can sometimes be permanent.

How To Fix An Asymmetrical Face

Asymmetry in the face can make a person's face look odd.

There are a few ways to improve facial asymmetry, but facial exercises are the only way that doesn't involve surgery. 

These things can be done by yourself and in the comfort of your own home.

Face exercises can help you get a symmetrical smile.

The facial workout is making over-the-top expressions and actions in order to strengthen the muscles in the face.

Think of it as resistance training for the face. 

Sagging skin around the eyes and jawline can be prevented or at least slowed by working to strengthen the supporting matrix.

Facial aging is caused by a loss of elasticity and by the gradual movement of fat pads between muscle and skin, which tend to slide down over time.

The idea behind working out is that if you build up your muscles, the fat pads will be more likely to stay where they are, making your face look fuller and younger.

You can, however, speed up the muscle of the other side by using mastic gum.

The gum is 10 times harder than regular gum, so you can use it to strengthen your weaker side.

It does its job 10 times faster.

Facial Exercise for a Symmetrical Face


Partial Wink

This activity puts the tissues around the lower eyes and upper cheek in the right place.

It involves partially blinking 50 times.

Wait a second between each wink.

Then press your fingers into the skin of the temple. 

Pull the skin back a little bit and tightly close the eyes while keeping your fingers in place.

About 20 repetitions of this exercise routine at a time will help.

Facial Stretching

Face up and pull the tissues under the upper lip to cover the bottom lip.

This will make the face look longer.

Even though the face is still stretched out, smile big. 

Doing this exercise 20 times will refresh your skin and align your facial muscles so that your face looks more symmetrical.

The lateral jaw stretch is another one.

To do it, put your jaw at rest and push it to the side.

Keep it there for 30 seconds. Do it twice, once on each side.


Cheek Toning

One side of the cheek can be smaller than the other if the face isn't symmetrical.

This kind of imbalance is easy to see.

With three fingers from each hand, press the upper cheek. 

Use your fingertips to push the muscles toward your jaw when you smile.

Try to resist the pressure of the fingers by moving the tissues in your cheeks with your smile.

Don't move your head while working out. 

A smile can be symmetrical if the cheeks are in the right place.

Facial Yoga Exercises

The movements of facial yoga not only increase blood flow but they also work the muscles that help tighten the skin.

This lets a person avoid the jowls and sagging skin that comes with age caused by gravity, and the facial muscles weaken over time.

Try some of the yoga moves for your face that are listed below.

  • Push air into the mouth, puff out the cheeks, and move the air from side to side four times. Do this up to five times daily to help the cheeks stand out.


  • Make the eyes big, the eyebrows high, and the tongue sticking out. Hold for up to one minute and do it up to ten times. The neck and cheeks benefit from this.


  • Make an O with your mouth. Then, smile and squint your eyes without letting your mouth move. Do this 10 times to tighten the skin all over.


  • Hold your hands up to your face and smile big. Make sure the hands cover the mouth so it can't smile. The goal is for the facial muscles to work against the muscles in the hands. Do this 10 times to help tighten the muscles in your face.


It is normal and common to have a face that isn't symmetrical.

Most of the time, it's caused by genes, aging, or lifestyle choices.

Even though a person may be aware of their own facial asymmetry, other people probably won't be.

As a matter of fact, studies have shown that it's probably a good thing and a big part of what makes each individual special.

In some cases, asymmetry of the face can be caused by an underlying medical condition.

If you treat the condition, it might make the difference look less noticeable.

If the asymmetry happens all of a sudden or is causing pain or other health problems, it might be a good idea to see a doctor.

Anyone who is worried about how they look can talk to their doctor about it.

However, those who are concerned with how they look may opt to correct whatever asymmetry they may have by trying these at-home remedies.
