I'm 32 and I have double lips when I smile. It's very unattractive. I'm thinking of doing something about it. Please let me know what procedures can be done and any additional info would be greatly appreciated. I live in Southern California so if there are doctors out there that specialize in this area, please recommend. Thank you.

Lip reduction might be the answer for you
If your lip hangs over or is simply too big or as you are saying has a double configuration you might consider having a lip reduction performed. This is my specialty, and i perform a lip correction/reduction several times a week. 90% of my patients fly in for this procedure and can fly back out the same day since the sutures are dissolvable. I posted a link to my website for my before and afters and more information along with a video of the after care, which is a topic of special interest to many who are interested in having this procedure done.
