It is only three weeks since surgery and many lip lifts will look a little tight or overdone initially. That will relax over the next few months. You need to be patient and give the result time to be fully realized before trying to change something else. Lip lifts can not be reversed as you can not replace the skin that has been removed. I suspect the 'chipmumk' look will improve significantly with more time.
