Question: I’m 55 and the corners of my mouth have begun to droop. Can this be improved with a facelift?
Answer: Corners of the mouth should not be improved with facelift alone otherwise your mouth will look “plastic” or “fake” or “done.” Think about Joan Rivers. That’s not a good look. You may need Botox at the corner of your mouth to the DAO muscle or fillers to the marionette area and/or a facelift. There is a procedure called a “corner of mouth lift” but the scar is unacceptable for most younger patients like yourself.
