Is It Possible to Get Rid of the Fat Under my Upper Lip? (photo)

It's located under my tubercle and there's lots of it. It completely deforms my smile. Is there anything I can do to get rid of it? I'm seventeen, by the way. If there IS anything I can do, am I too young to get it done?

i see what you are talking about but i need to see a photo with your lips in repose or not moving. i think this can be corrected with a simple office procedure unless it is a anatomic problem with your maxilla or teeth.
