Botox and Face turned down
A small amount of Botox can help turn the DAO's in the lower face and it is best to combine with a filler like Restylane Lyft. Please consult a specilaist. Best, Dr. Green
Treating Downturned Mouth
Looking at your photo, you would benefit from Botox injections as well as fillers to the area underneath the lower corners of your mouth. Best wishes.
This can be corrected using fillers and Botox. Supporting the corners of the lips with filler and relaxing the muscle that pulls down on the corners of the mouth.

Turning a sad face into a refreshed, pleasant face
Congratulations for asking this question. Many people don't realize there are subtle ways of looking more refreshed and pleasant. Your jaw surgery will help with looking less mopey, and filler and "Brotox" can help polish the look. Since the appearance of sadness doesn't come from one area of your face, little adjustments can make a huge difference. Only filling the nasiolabial crease or fold is a technique that can lead to unnatural results if that is the only area of focus for fillers. It's important to find a plastic surgeon that has a natural eye for your overall appearance- even on the areas not included in your photo. People often leave out correction of the cheeks which can make you look old and tired or sad. Hope this helps.
We humans are indeed sensitive to unspoken communication by facial expression, as are non-human species. Wait until healed from orthognathic procedure(s), because your facial features will be changed. If you're still frowning at rest, consider corner of lip lift, which will produce a more neutral expression, or, if you want, a subtle smile.
My face always looks sad. What can I do
Thank you for your question and photograph. Though nothing replaces an in-person examination and discussion of your goal results I would advocate for dermal filler placement into your cheeks and conservative placement of dermal filler into your lips to help add volume and improve the downturned appearance of your lips. If filler alone does improve the corners of your mouth, Bbotox can be added later to help. Hope this helps.
