“My lips have never touched at rest. My bottom lip is very full and my top lip quite thin, so I was wondering if I got my top lip augmented, maybe my lips would close naturally. I can force them to close, but then my chin looks odd- dimpled from mentalis strain. The lip incompetency really messes up how I look. I need a solution that won’t alter my face too much or be too costly. Jaw surgery isn’t necessary- I have a perfect bite from having braces. If only I could get my lips to close!”, asks a RealSelf user.
“What you are trying to achieve can be done with a combination of injectables. For your upper lip, you can undergo Restylane or Juvederm (lasts longer) as well as Botox to lower the mid portion of your upper lip. In addition, you may undergo Botox injections in the mentalist muscle (chin) to decrease the prominence and further close the gap. Please look for an advanced injectable practitioner for providing these services. Best of luck.”, explains Aristocrat’s certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S.
