Lip Drop After Titan Laser

Effects of Titan
There is no conceivable reason why the Titan treatment would cause an inability to smile. The picture on the bottom shows a fuller upper lip which suggests that some form of filler or fat was used to achieve greater lip volume.
I'm not sure Titan has anything to do with your wife's lip position. She appears to have had a filler injected into her lips--the "after" photo shows much fuller lips than the "before" photo. Her upper lip is more full, which may be why it's covering more of her teeth.
Depending on the type of filler used, she may be able to have it removed. She should see her plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
