how to fix asymmetrical cheekbones
« on: March 08, 2017, 09:07:34 pm »
the first month i began belt facepulling i was pulling almost only the right side of my face because the right side of my mandible was completely recessed while the left side was more developed.this in turn made my right cheekbone wider and fuller in comparison to my left cheekbone (my cheekbones were already a bit asymmetrical even before that).then i started pulling equally from both sides for another month which improved my left cheekbone but it's still asymmetrical.should i begin pulling only the left side of my face to make it symmetrical or just wait until it's fixed from mewing?btw my mandible is still asymmetrical but has improved a lot.i hope my text made sense :p

I'd love to see pics and know your method and routine. More info the better for all of us! Plenty of people on this forum are curious about working methods, because so few people share photos and routines with good results. Thanks!

I thought you people gave up on the belt facepulling? After reading about so many people who had done some pretty bad damage to their faces, although I really wanted to try it in the beginning too, I thought its pretty risky. After checking here and there I only managed to find two testimonials and the pictures of both people had reasons to look fake. I dont know if you have noticed, but absolutely everyone who has done some pulling method has a huge asymmetry. After reading some time ago about the importance of facial symmetry to facial beauty,  I immidiately started to notice the asymmetry of people I have known for a long a time, but noticed it just now, because it was something I expected to see and the other thing is that many people, uhm how to say it, sunk their teeth into their gums? with that method. Last days I fell upon facial exercises to tighten the skin, and there were testimonials of several people and I could bet that everybody had reduced his vertical growth and their upper jaw had gone forward, even showed it to a friend and he agreed. So I was thinking, Mike Mew spoke a lot about the importance of the proper use of facial muscles and their help to facial development. The example of Stephen Hawking and his weaking of the muscles resulting in melting of his face got me thinking that those facial exercises could be really beneficial. Some might be like "duh, that is why we strengthen the masseter and all", but here I am not talking just about the mewing and the masseter, I am talking about all muscles, even those at the back of your head, so everything pulls together for great results.  At this other forum there was this guy who mewed for a year, everyday with hours and the results were super amazing(age 20 by the way, I know u want to know), almost like that belt facepulling, minus the asymmetry and the upper jaw could use a little more forward movement, but his mandibula got super unlocked. On the "how to achieve facial growth" or sth like that utube video of mike mew there was this dude who claimed amazing results by constantly pushing with the tongue, (also around 19 years of age). Ive come this past 2-3 days to realise that unless ur body and head position is as proper as it can be, your tongue will get tired really fast and u would be able to push only for short periods, but with proper body and head position and  with time, it gets easier. So, to sum up:

1. Facial exercises to pull the whole skin, which pulls the jaw too(not yet tested, but from all pictures seen, I am almost certain it yields awesome results for no time)  That dude is the one who really really got me in the idea, that it will work, look at the vertical growth in the beginning, look in the end, plus u might check out other people there, because I am almost sure that that is the case.

2. Mewing, hard gum, for several hours a day - unwanted result is temporalis muscle hypertrophy, but not that much of a worry in my opinion, that or/plus ->

3. Pushing with the tongue hard, with absolute proper body and head position as long as you can.

Nothing new in the end really except the facial exercises, but I wanted to share them, because I think they are game-changer, plus I wanted to hear opinions on that and views. I think that this is better than the risky belt facepulling method and is what suggest.

And to add to the question, because I didnt say anything about it, many people who did the facial exercises reported fixing of the asymmetry in the cheeks and I dont really think it is because of the change in the muscles, more likely I think it is because it had impact on the jaw. Thing about those exercises is 1. that you must NEVER spot train, you should do for the whole face 2. dont make risks by combining from different people's exercises 3. it is hard to find really the proper ones for you and which will also support my idea 4. aaand also the guides usually cost money, although I consider buying the one I gave a link to above

I use Facerobics on YouTube by Peet's - it's free, with great reviews. Been doing it for a few months, and my muscles are a lot stronger. But it takes a long time to change. The series is many levels with a lot of education before getting into it.

Thanks for the recommendation. :) So you do support the idea that facial excersises will help with the upper jaw movement?

this is the result (of the pic) of a clinic that uses tongue activators 6 months (I mean... 6 months, wow..):

Correct me if I am wrong, but hasnt her face gotten a lot longer? Something we would like to avoid? Now I know that fixing the jaws could result in a bit longer face, because it gets unlocked, but here it looks much more than that. Could please also explain me what those tongue activators do and how they work and what is their purpose and influence to the tongue exactly? :)

It seems that the photos just aren't scale-matched. It becomes more apparent when they're placed next to each other:

You know the face is full of muscle, and we know that impacts the shape of bones in the skull. It makes sense that change should occur, but for myself I will have to wait and see. I've noticed some lifting since beginning all this stuff at the turn of the year, but I changed:

- swallowing : buccinators are hopefully now in atrophy
- tongue: I work on having it up and back all day
- chewing: my foods tend to be softer, so I chew mastic gum
-sleep: My chin is helped shut by using my hand with knuckles to shut jaw
- face exercises: these happen each day in the Facerobics series - still on Level 1, Series 1
- body posture : I try to keep it good, but I have a spinal weakened. I've revelry gotten a saddle chair and am able to sit on it now. This month I'm hoping to work on it with upright healthy alignment and good head posture

So some I'm doing good, others need more work. I'm starting with no jaw line, and oddly my husband says he sees definition coming in. I'd say what I'm doing isn't making me look any worse, and is helping my health. I'll be reporting any major changes, but probably need more months to see what happens since all of this naturally is slow going.

During the night I constantly wake up and feel that my mouth is open, but at least the tongue is staying on the roof even with open mouth so I am happy about that. I was thinking about tying my jaw so it doesnt open, but somehow don't really like the idea. I want to start chewing mastic gum too, but can't really afford to spend 30 euro on it, if there are no other options I would buy it, but do you have any other suggestions that come to mind, that will do close to what the mastic gum is doing for a gum?

Falim gum is much cheaper on Amazon and a good alternative from what people say...

so can mewing alone in theory without any other therapy fix  most asymmetries including asymmetrical cheekbones?

i have looked at pictures from when i was 8-9 years old and my cheekbones were symmetrical so shouldn't they align with time from mewing?

I think for sure it's better to have symmetry, but as far as it comes to attractiveness, I think it's role is not that big as often thought. With most people who have asymmetry, apart from something like a very uneven nose, you can not really tell in real life, unless they are photographed from purely the front, even if you've known the person for years. Striking features like good defined cheekbones are much more important than symmetry. Symmetry has to be studied, unlike much more apparent overal shapes and their composition to one another. Alot of celebs are full of asymmetry if you study their faces, but it does not really matter anyone much. Some have 1 eyelid visible and the other not, and if you mirror them, it doesnt really look that much better.I would much rather have good defined cheekbones that were a bit uneven than less cheekbones absolutely symmetrical. Not trying to discredit this thread in any way. Symmetry is always better of course, but forward growth and overal harmony between the different parts of the face (golden ratio) are much more important.

yes i know that but even in terms of forward growth one of my cheekbones is more prominent than the other so they are completely asymmetrical meaning that not only my maxilla is tilted to one side but that one side is also more prominent.so that's why i'm curious to know if mewing & chewing alone could fix this asymmetry.

yes it makes sense you want to fix it! I think purely theoretical at least pulling the opposites site of the one you pulled, will recreate the same situation in terms of symmetry as you started with. that would seem the most logical. From there on, another method could be better to solve the asymmetry problem
