Fix Nose Asymmetry By Adjusting | Koko Face Yoga

I want to discuss how to fix an asymmetrical nose by adjusting the cheeks. An asymmetrical nose refers to differences in nostril size, shape, or position. This can be due to muscle and bone structures around the nose. Cheek muscles, specifically the dominant and non-dominant sides, can also affect the appearance of the nose. Balancing the cheek muscles can improve the symmetry of the nose and affect other facial features such as the eyebrows and eyes. If you notice that your glasses sit unevenly on your face, it may be due to asymmetrical cheeks that need to be balanced.

1.Cheek assesment

To fix an asymmetrical nose, adjusting the cheeks is important. The asymmetry in the nose can be caused by differences in the size or shape of the nostrils or the bone structure around the nose. It's important to pay attention to the dominant and non-dominant sides of the cheeks as well, as this can also affect the symmetry of the nose. For example, if one cheek is lifting up too much when smiling, it can cause one nostril to appear higher than the other. Balancing the muscles and bone structure in the cheeks can help improve the symmetry of the nose and also affect the eyebrows and eyes. When wearing glasses, if one cheek appears higher than the other, it could be a sign of asymmetrical cheeks that need to be balanced. By improving the balance of the cheek muscles, it can have a positive impact on the overall appearance of the face.

2. Cheek massage

First, let's determine which side of the peak is higher or bigger. We want to relax the bigger side muscle, so start with a small massage, avoiding wrinkles. Try touching gently, maybe like this. Then, remember which side is one and two. Next, intentionally mix it up and reverse the order when you smile. Start with one, then two, one two, and so on until ten. Take it slow and focus on feeling the difference.

3. Smile lift up slowly

Try to lift both cheeks while smiling with your tongue up. Watch a video to learn what mewing is if you don't know. Keep your shoulders down and press the outer side of your cheeks slightly with your elbows on a desk. Breathe deeply and press gently while inhaling. Don't press too hard.

4. Smile lift up faster

To improve facial symmetry, it's important to program the movement in our inner face and brain. Regular smiling is faster and more natural, so try to lift both cheeks as much as possible with your tongue up. First, assess which cheek is stronger and which comes out first. Then, massage the stronger cheek and do tiny movements. Next, do the exercise by lifting both cheeks simultaneously. Finally, do the exercise faster. These exercises work best when sitting up straight and not crossing your legs. It's important to understand the situation before trying to improve facial symmetry.

Improving the balance of the cheeks is crucial in correcting the symmetry of the nose and overall appearance of the face. Cheek massages and smile lifting exercises can help to balance the muscles and bone structure of the cheeks, and enhance facial symmetry. It's important to assess which side of the cheek is bigger or higher, and focus on relaxing the bigger side muscle. By practicing these exercises regularly, we can program the movement in our inner face and brain, and improve our facial symmetry.
