Assymetrical face from sleeping on side

After many years of sleeping on my right side, I have pushed my right eyebrow downwards. This bothers be quite a bit, and although it might not be consciously notable to other people, I can tell that if I lift it up manually I look a lot better.

I guess I have two questions:

1.) If I stop sleeping on my side will my face eventually become symmetrical again?
2.) Are there any exercises I can do to help my right eyebrow come back up?

Asymmetry of the face is universal.  Good photo studies have been performed on famous people by replicating half of their face to the other side.  When each side is viewed as a full face, they look completely different.  It is not clear if your sleep habits have caused the brow asymmetry and it is equally not clear if altering this habit will change your brow level.  I know of no exercises that will correct this problem.  Surgery may be an option, but even this will not assure symmetry.
