Down turned lips - what to do
Thank you for asking about your lip surgery and down turned lips.
- Please do nothing at this time - you are swollen from surgery and need to wait at least 3 months.
- I do not like the scars of corner lip lifts or margin lip lifts.
- Since the corners are pulled down with muscle, Botox to the depressor anguli oris muscle should lift your lip.
- If it does not, it is very likely to be from surgical swelling so give it more time.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
