YOU WROTE:

Current medical status: I have an asymmetrical lower lip. The cause of this was originally when I was 2 and split open my lip. After the doctors stitched me up, scar tissue developed and left a lump on the right side of my lower lip. When I was 17 I had the lump removed by an oral surgeon who removed my wisdom teeth at the same time. The lump was removed but it left my lower lip asymmetrical and I've been self-conscious because of it. Most people don't notice but it bothers me greatly. http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm135/J ersonic/DSC00051.jpg http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm135/J ersonic/DSC00047.jpg http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm135/J ersonic/DSC00046.jpg




Looking at your photos, I (like most people) can’t notice any asymmetry of the lower lip that disturbs your face’s aesthetic appeal. I can only advise you to stop seeking plastic surgery on your lower lip if it's not medically necessary. The reasons why “you’ve been self-conscious” may lie somewhere else, not in your lips.
