Please Suggest A Remedy For Unbalanced Smile

Hi doc, I m worried because my smile is not balance. My right cheek has bigger, stronger and harder muscles and my left is softer, so when I smile my right side looks bigger than my left. I suspected that its because of the thing i do in swimming. I m a swimmer and to lessen the turning of my head when I m swimming I usually just pull my right cheek with my mouth at my right to get some air. How can I loosen up or make my right cheek smaller to make it like my left cheek that is softer. Can i do a stretching? or I would just let it loosen up?

Hi...

It may due to habit or abnormality of cheek muscle. Kindly consult the plastic surgeon for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment.

If the muscle and cheek tissues are normal, no treatment is neede. Just be conscious while smiling. If there is abnormality, plastic surgery may be considered.

Ok
