My jaw is uneven how can this be fixed?
Not everyone sees it but in pictures it's really visible sometimes and I am really insecure about it, that plus my acne scars.....what can I do to fix this?....I can email pictures to any dr. Who needs to see it in order to help, but I didn't want to upload them publicly.

Better yet seek in person consults to be examined.

Fillers may help  June 29, 2012 12:22 PM

Injectable fillers like Juvederm or Radiesse are often very effective in correcting mild jaw asymmetry. I like Radiesse because it lasts for a long time and gives good definition. Acne scars are tough to treat, but do respond to laser or injections of Juvederm, depending on how many there are and how deep they are. Pictures would certainly help refine recommendations, but I hope this helps.
