I have heard two conflicting opinions on this. A surgeon feels that filler will end up looking as if it is being pushed down and outward (like a duck) because I have too much heaviness in my face, and I really need a lip lift. (I.e., fillers don't defy gravity). A dermatologist feels that ~1/4 syringe (more on right in pic) on each side should not cause a "duck" look and would help raise the area. I am 32, so it's not time for a facelift - but this area has definitely aged.

Lifting the corners of the mouth
I think filler will help your problem with the corners of the lips. This will not give you the "duck look". The "duck look" is usually caused by filling the lips.Also, a little Botox at the jawline (DAO) would probably help your situationa bit.You will not get totoal resolution of your problem but i think it would help a lot.
Lip lift for the corners of the mouth
- A little filler in the corner of the mouth (not the lips) will help raise the area a little bit
- The results will improve the look, but it will likely not make it fully resolve
- If you hate the results, the filler can be dissolved so if you are not ready for something surgical, the filler is a great place to start
Corner of Mouth Lift for Skin Overhang
Fillers are a good place to start because of their simplicity. If this is not effective, you should consider a corner of the mouth lift to get rid of the skin overhang.
