How to Correct my Deep Labiomental Groove

Hi. In 5 years I've had two fat injections and finally one time skin-fascia graft for my depp groove. Skin-fascia graft seems to work just a little bit while injections did nothing. My problem is beginnig at at the center of the lower lip mostly.Just under the center of the lower lip there is a huge hallow. My plastic surgeon suggested me some type of temporary fillers but im not sure what to do.Should i better use temporary filler or permanent something for the correction of the problem?Thanks

Without seeing photos it is difficult to say,b ut quite commonly I inject fillers( usually temporary) into the crease to soften them.

Without a photo or more detailed history your question cannot be answered in this format. Was this a result of trauma and previously normal? Were you born with a congenital deformity? Is there a cleft in the muscles or bone that could be amenable to some other surgical procedure? Is the chin bone retruded?

My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship.
