Finding Corner Of Mouth Lift Doctors

I would start by contacting the offices of facial plastic surgeons in your area. Most will likely perform corner of the mouth lifts as these are fairly simply and straight forward procedures.

Elevating the corner of the mouth can be done surgically, with fillers, or both. Isolated surgical procedures can be performed to counter act the effects of the depressor anguli oris muscles at the corner of the mouth which pull down the lower lip. Facelifts can lift the corner of the mouth as well. Fillers can fill out the lip cheek junction to elevate the lip as well.

Upper Lip Rejuvenation

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

With the older patient the lip, in addition to wrinkles and furrows can lengthen. A lip lift with a gull-wing type of excision which hides the scars in the crease beneath the nostrils is quite effective and unnoticeable. Ant this will shorten the upper lip, add a little bit of vermillion show, and the Fraxel re:Pair laser can then be used to resurface the skin to address the wrinkles with quite effective results.

Perioral rejuvenation

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Perioral rejuvenation has many components.

An experienced plastic surgeon can give you an idea of which would benefit you for your best result.

For lost volume, the volume should be replaced. There are many methods for volume replacement; we prefer LiveFill(TM), an autologous graft from the patient's own tissues that is harvested and inserted atraumatically.

Corner of the mouth lifts lift up sagging corners of the mouth. They do not, of course, counteract a hypertrophic DAO muscle, a frowning muscle of the lip. The DAO can be separately divided.

Upper lip lifts are useful for a long upper lip distance. Maxillary length, tooth show, etc. must be balanced (occasionally VY flaps are required to increase mucosal show of the lip).

Resurfacing techniques are occasionally necessary for lip wrinkles.

Multivector facelifts treat sagging perioral tissues.

If any of these procedures is overdone, the results can be distracting and in some cases irreversibly bad (i.e. aggressive lip lifts). Nor can one procedure be done
'very aggressibely' to avoid having to do the others, should the indications be present. For example it is in some cases unwise to place so much filler in the lips so that the wrinkles go away, when the wrinkles are due to severe sun damage best treated by laser resurfacing. If overaugmentation of the lips is attempted, it creates a bizarre appearance. Lips should be beautiful structures, not resembling sausages, ducks or trout.

Surgeons who specialize in revision facelifts are no doubt fluent with all of these concepts.
