I am 28 years old.my smile looks very ugly like an old person.is it because of long upper lip or because of overbite or both.And if it is because of both then can i get lip lift done first before overbite treatment as overbite correction takes very long time?

Thank you for asking about your lip lift.
- First, you need an exam to have a reliable answer.
- However your photos suggest that your small chin and overbite are the underlying problem.
- I would have these corrected before having a lip lift -
- They are the structure of your face - the lip is only the cover and correcting structure first is important.
