  • $\begingroup$ I think it's that I give portions of the mesh more subdivisions than others; for now I'll just remember not to do that... $\endgroup$ – ball2000 Nov 7 '14 at 7:12
  • $\begingroup$ I'm thinking smooth vertex takes an average of connected vertices; those vertices which moved inwards were connected by an edge to the upper curve whereas those which moved downwards weren't. Rather than... I don't know, averaging infinity vertices of the suggested idealized shape? (may increase calculation time) ;) $\endgroup$ – ball2000 Nov 9 '14 at 6:18

This tool doesn't seem to like ngons (faces with more than four vertices).

Assuming you want to make the outer edge circular, instead you might try using To sphere
(⎇ Alt⇧ ShiftS):

Or you might try the bundled loops tools addon.
