Everyone’s face is somewhat asymmetrical, so slightly uneven lips aren’t highly noticeable to others. But uneven lips can be a frustrating cosmetic issue, which could affect your emotional health. Severely uneven lips, however, can affect how you eat and speak. If your lips are uneven, it may be due to your facial muscles being underdeveloped or weak. This could be the result of a condition such as Lyme disease, or it could be present from birth. Here are some facial exercises you can perform to make your lips appear more balanced: Tighten your lips as if you are going to attempt to whistle. Hold that position for 10 to 15 seconds. Repeat 10 to 20 times a day; Stretch your lips with your lips closed as if you are trying to touch the corners of your mouth to your ears. Hold that position for 10 seconds. Next, stretch your lips further with your teeth slightly exposed. Hold the position again. Then, stretch your lips as far as they can go with your teeth bared. Hold the position, then relax; Purse your lips. Suck in your cheeks so that they are close to touching each other (commonly called fish face). Then, move your lips up and down in the pucker position. If the above techniques fail, you will need to try cosmetic lip surgery.
