layla5000,

You are speaking of the jaw muscle (masseter muscle). A 4cm difference is size is a huge difference in the jaw muscles. You face must be very asymmetrical.

While it is not uncommon for persons to have a small difference in their masseter muscles, a 4cm difference is very uncommon. Persons who tend to chew on one side of the mouth, will develop a small difference in masseters. To correct this, the person has to chew on the other side of the mouth. Thus, evening out the masseters.


If you have this significant of a facial asymmetry, you may want to speak with an oral surgeon or a maxillofacial surgeon.

Good luck.
