How Much Can Fillers Lift a Mouth Area?

Can fillers, fat transfers, or a skin-only lift help lift a mouth area that is still low on on the face after 2 facelifts?

Perioral rejuvenation

Fillers can help elevate the corners of the mouth and so can a facelift. It really depends upon what you look like and what is needed to achieve the results.  An exam is critical.

Facelift revision

our question cannot be answered given the limited information in your post. If the dissection during the facelift did not free up the ligaments the pull of the skin excision in front of the ear did not get transmitted to the mouth area. If a skin only facelift was performed that may have been inadequate. If the problem is a long upper lip that will require a subperiosteal facelift rather than your standard facelift. In any of these cases that would need to be redone. If the problem is loss of bone and/or dental support no amount of facelift alone will correct the problem.

In order to fully answer your question photos or preferably a face to face examination and review of the previous surgery operative reports is required.

I hope you realize that this format of posting questions and receiving answers lacks the face to face direct communication required for you to make an informed decision regarding your surgery.

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.
