As you age, the area between the nose and lip lengthens, giving a curtain appearance.  Based on your photos, you could benefit from a lip lift.  Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for an exam, and to discuss your options.  Best wishes!

Lip Lift

Based on the picture posted, the distance from the base of the nose to the upper lip is slightlt long. A lip lift and possibly a subtle lip enhancement can be of help. However you need to accept a scat at the base of the nose and the ala of the nose.
