Would a lip lift work to give a 55-year-old a more symmetrical smile? (photos)
I had a rhynoplasty 3 moths ago so I am hoping my nose will look a lot better soon. Should I do a lip lift on one side? fat grafting so my cheeks will look more symmetrical when I smile? Please help! I am also considering a mini facelift. Is there some way for my surgeon to use the mini face lift to help me achieve a more symmetrical smile?

Lip lifts perform 3 functions: shortens the
distance between the nose and lip, rolls out the mucosa of the upper lip and
increases the incisor show.Asymmetrical
skin resection is done to produce a more symmetrical smile.

An asymmetrical lip lift might improve your upper lip symmetry. Cheek lifting is unlikely to help this. Best of Luck Dr Harrell
