faces are characterized by a delicate balance of features where even minor deviations from symmetry or balance can have a noticeable impact on our overall appearance. 

If you’re noticing asymmetry or lack of balance in your features, you’ll be thrilled to know that they can be corrected, and without the need for surgery! Dermal fillers allow us to enhance facial harmony and restore balance in a gentle, minimally invasive way. In this post, we’ll explore the use of fillers as powerful tools to achieve facial symmetry and create a more pleasing aesthetic outcome.

How Facial Symmetry Impacts Attractiveness

Facial symmetry holds immense importance in the perception of attractiveness and plays a significant role in our overall aesthetic appeal. Humans are innately drawn to symmetrical faces which we tend to perceive as more beautiful and pleasing. 

Unlike many other standards of beauty, symmetry is universally desirable across different cultures and societies. Studies have shown that individuals with symmetrical faces are generally rated as more attractive, healthy, and fit. 

This goes beyond the traditional definition of facial symmetry, which compares the left and right sides of the face. It also extends to how proportionate our facial features are in relation to one another. The size and shape of the forehead, eyes, nose, lips, chin, and jawline play a crucial role. When these features are proportionate and aligned, they create a sense of balance and harmony. 

How Fillers Can Enhance Facial Balance and Restore Proportion

Dermal fillers can improve facial symmetry and balance in a few different ways – here’s how you may benefit from their effects. 

Correcting Volume Imbalances

As we age, our faces tend to lose volume, resulting in a sunken or hollow appearance in certain areas. Unfortunately, this volume loss doesn’t always occur evenly on both sides of the face. 

Fillers like Juvéderm Voluma restore volume to these areas to give a fuller, more youthful appearance, and in the hands of a skilled injector, they can correct volume asymmetry. For example, if one cheek appears less defined or flatter than the other, targeted filler injections will replenish lost volume and bring balance to both sides of the face.


Refining Facial Contours

Fillers can also be used to refine facial contours and improve overall proportion. For example, if the chin appears weak or recessed, filler injections can improve its projection, creating a more balanced profile. 

Similarly, fillers can be used to enhance cheekbones, reshape the jawline, or smooth out irregularities in the nose, all of which contribute to improved facial proportion and balance.

Customized Approach

The key to achieving optimal results with fillers lies in a customized approach. Each client’s face is unique, and the treatment plan should be tailored to their specific needs and desired outcomes. 

A skilled practitioner carefully analyzes the patient’s facial structure, considers their aesthetic goals, and designs a treatment plan that addresses their specific volume imbalances and asymmetries. 

Expert Recommendations for Achieving Optimal Facial Symmetry With Fillers

If you’re dissatisfied with your facial proportions or symmetry, take your time and seek the advice of a professional. Here’s our process at SEV to ensure each patient achieves optimal facial symmetry with fillers:

Consultation With an Experienced Professional

  • We’ll always start by scheduling a consultation with your experienced nurse injector who specializes in facial aesthetics.
  • During the consultation, your provider will assess your facial structure, features, existing asymmetries, muscle dynamics, and skin quality.
  • Your provider will also review your personal goals, to ensure the treatment aligns with your needs and desires. 

Customize the Treatment Plan

  • Based on the assessment, your nurse injector will develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns and goals.
  • The plan may involve the strategic placement of fillers in areas that require volume enhancement or correction of asymmetry.
  • Your professional may also recommend complementary treatments, such as Botox for muscle balance or skin rejuvenation procedures.

Strategic Filler Placement

  • Your professional will use their expertise to strategically inject fillers in precise locations to enhance symmetry.
  • They may target areas such as the cheeks, temples, jawline, chin, or lips, depending on your unique needs.

Aftercare and Review

  • Following the treatment, your nurse injector will go over what you can expect and your aftercare plan. It’s imperative that you follow injection aftercare closely. 
  • You will likely experience some swelling for several days after your treatment. This is perfectly normal, so wait a few days before reviewing your results. 
  • Your nurse may recommend booking a follow-up appointment to check that the results are ideal and to make any corrections if necessary.
