Unhappy with the shape of your mouth?

There are certain genetic features which I do not advise altering by plastic surgery. We all have certain self image concerns-e.g.: when I was younger I would have preferred to be six foot two inches tall and blond. Instead I am five foot seven inches and had dark hair (now greying)- lol. Based on the photos you submitted, you actually have a big smile with full lips that give a strong masculine appearance.In fact, most patients want a bigger smile! My advice is not to surgically alter the shape of your mouth or your lips. Like surgery around the eyes, many times this alters shape and balance of facial features that create a more unnatural look.
