How Symmetrical Is Your Face?

We see beauty in symmetry. Balance is important more than details. Let’s take a look at our environment and surroundings. The beauty of flowers, tree leaves, and many other natural objects show us symmetrical beauty.
Scientific research has shown that our eyes are more drawn to symmetric patterns, then to an object itself.We find beauty in symmetry. That means, at first sight what people see is not the individual parts of your face but the symmetry in your face. Of course, asymmetry can be charming, attractive and eye-catching just like we see in art.


Here are photos of me. “Before” the Face Yoga Method exercises, right after my terrible car accident made my face asymmetrical. One side of my face is much higher than the other. Check out the eye size. One is bigger than the other. How about the eye brows? One side is much higher than the other. And the corners of the mouth? One side is much higher than the other. Quite shocking.

How To End The Asymmetry In Your Face

Most of us have an “asymmetrical” face, mostly caused by unconscious repetitive movements throughout the day. In this video, I will show you a simple eye exercise to make your eye area, especially eye brow more symmetrical. You will be surprised to see how the Face Yoga Method can change your face.

    1. Hello mam. I am seriously worried that my jaw is asymmetrical. 2 yrs ago I fell down on my right jaw. It got swollen and now I am feeling very sad when I am looking at myself. My right jaw is longer than the other. I want to set it right. Please say what to do mam.

  1. This helped a lot 🙂 But only with my eyebrows. What should I do to make my cheeks become even? Because, I’m really struggling on my cheeks. My right cheek is chubbier than my right cheek, so it becomes uneven and sort of unbalanced in the picture and it make me look odd. What should I do to make it even? I want to lessen the fat of my cheeks. I’m looking forward to your reply, response, help, advice, tip 🙂 I know you can help me 🙂 Thank you.

  2. Hello I have assymetric flat big lips. Is there any natural method to fic this please for thinner and more defined lips ? Thank you

  3. This is really good and works wonder but my left cheek is much more cubbier than my right! And it left jaw line is longer than the right…soo it makes me look like o have a bent face in pictures…any ways resolving that?

  4. Hello. I had bells palsy years ago and wasn’t told about muscle redefining. It never healed correctly. Now one side of my face is more muscular than the other causing me to be lopsided in the right side. My eye closes when I open my mouth and the jaw is slowly assuming into my face causing my teeth to move. My smile is crooked and it is uncomfortable to make normal facial expressions due to the tightness and pulling. Is there anything I can do to correct this? Please help!

    1. Hello Jenn,

      Thank you for your message and question.
      As for the bells palsy, I have had a couple of clients who wanted to try the Face Yoga as a part of
      rehabilitation. I am not a Dr and I cannot see you in person so hard to tell you but from my experience,
      I believe face exercise can help. It may take longer but effective way to correct the face muscles.

      So I assume you have tried this, right?

      and how about this one?
      This one is good to train your eye area too!
      Like I have said, it may take time but I hope you can start feeling/seeing some changes sometime soon!

      Please let me know your progress,



      1. Hi fumiko, I m srishty, even I had bells palsy one and half year back and have assymetry specially I have crooked smile and one eye smaller than the other it will be great help if you can by any chance help us with your facial yoga in my case and I have synkenisis too if u can upload some videos for rehabilitation it will be great help… Thanks in advance

        1. Hi Srishty,
          Yours is truly a very special case and we plan on looking deeper and doing more research exercises that help those with Bell’s Palsy. Thank you for the suggestion!

  5. This has helped me quite a bit. My right eyebrow and lid had started sagging noticeably in the last month or so. I felt so self conscious about it as my eyebrow was much lower and the eyelid made my eye appear smaller ( at least in my mind’s eye it was very noticable.

    This exercise has lifted both the eyebrow and the lid, so they’re even. I’ve been doing them in addition to the 28 day challenge, what I learned in the webinar, and the free ebook. I also feel brighter and more energetic for some reason.

    Thank you

  6. I also have a lopsided face. I wasn’t born this way but now the right side of my cheek area is much wider than the left. But when i look in the mirror it is barely noticeable. However i do notice it in some of the pictures i take and by the reactions and comments i over hear from people in public. I did have multiple abscesses on both sides of my mouth a few years ago and also an extended bout of tmj. I heard these conditions can actually cause some shifting of your face if left unattended and im starting to believe this is what caused this problem. If anyone has any solutions to this i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

  7. Thanks for this helpful video 🙂 Now i know why my left side is higher, cause when i was young i wanted to learn how to raise just one eyebrow, they used this method as well. Since i only trained one side it made my left side higher T^T . I am gonna master my right side now haha.

  8. I was wondering, could one even their masseter muscles by chewing a sliced in half mouth guard in which ever side of the mouth that is disproportionate? essentially it would be the same as chewing your food, just your chewing on rubber. If one can do this wouldn’t it cause for better results because of the resistance.

  9. my left eye look to be normal but the right one looks slightly stretched upward. will this excerise help with conditions like this?

  10. I am impressed with the video. Facial deformation can be a killing thing. People who suffer know the hurt, insult and pain it can cause.

    This video will surely help so many people!

    I also have made a number of techniques to correct chin, cheek and lip imbalance. If somebody needs help they can contact me.

    But this is not to take away the glory from Fumika! She has posted a remarkable video!

  11. Basically, your teeth and nose are the major culprits. The nose septum and cartilage will bend one way over time from bad habits as well as your teeth. These bad habits range from using facial expressions and having tendency to use one side of muscles over the other to sleeping on your stomach. The list goes on but just try to be as aware and conscious of your actions at all times. Best of luck!

  14. Hi Fumiko,

    I am a recent reader of your blog and I immensely enjoy and appreciate your knowledge. I turned 30 and I have never been more conscious about my looks. My face is asymmetrical with slightly prominent differences. I like my right side of my face but I do not like my left side. I would like my left side to resemble more like my right. Could u suggest exercises to make my left side more like my right so that there is symmetry?

  15. Hi Fumiko, I recently noticed that my chin in the left side is longer than the right side, my right side is upper! it used to be round and nice. and my left chick is bigger than right one. would you please give me or show me any yoga face practice. it really bothers me to see unsymmetrical chin on my face! thank you so much.

  17. What about for people who have who have bottom lips that have depressor anguli oris. My bottom lip only tends to move on left side. And my bottom lips dont move normally. And i was born with this. Are mouth exercises for this?

  18. Hello, my face is too small in proportion to my height. I am 5’7.5″ female. I am relatively skinny but definitely not anorexic and generally in good health, by God’s grace. But my face is so disproportionate with rest of my physique that people will always comment on the small size. Some people give me fake compliments by saying things like “oh your face so cute similar to a little child” while others say harsh comments like “do you eat? Or are you ill?” Some stranger may not say anything to me but I can see them staring or I can hear them gossip as I pass, whispers such as “maybe it’s downsyndrome” because they don’t understand. I am perfectly healthy in terms of mental and physical conditions. I personally think my jaw is too small because my forehead measures equal or close to other people my age. Please let me know if it is possible to correct this by yoga. Thank you.

  19. Hello fukimo, my face is insanely uneven. My left cheek droops low and my right cheek is higher. Also my smile is super uneven. I have a bit of a lazy eye and my right eyebrow is higher than the other. PLEASE HELP PLEASE REPLY

  20. My friend has facial paralysis from being hit in the face with a ball as a child. Would these exercises help if she has paralysis? I want to tell her about you…but don’t want to give her false hope.

    1. Hi Christine,
      Hers is truly a very special case and we plan on looking deeper and doing more research exercises that help those with facial paralysis. Thank you for the suggestion!

  22. I need help with my unsymmetrical eyebrows. Although, they are long and broad they aren’t well shaped at all and this makes me look idiotic.

  23. Can I just say what a comfort to uncover somebody who actually understands what they are talking about
    on the net. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people ought to read this and understand this side of your story.
    It’s surprising you’re not more popular because
    you surely have the gift.

  24. Hey! So for most of my life I’ve been sleeping on my right side, which caused my jaw to be slanted or uneven. I want to fix it but I’m not sure if there’s a massage to do that. My jaw slants towards my left. Is there a way I can send you a reference photo and you can tell me what I need to fix? And possibly recommend what exercises I should do?

    Thank you for your time! I hope to hear from you soon.

  25. Hi my left side cheeck is correct and my right side cheek is falling down. When I went to the doctor he told me to undergo a surgery.
