Can A Midface Lift Elevate The Corners Of The Mouth?

Q: Dr. Eppley, In doing a mid facelift is there any way this can lift the smile to make the upper teeth more prominent?

Also can implants be done after a facelift or does timing matter?

A: In answer to your facial surgery questions:

1) A midface lift can not lift the smile, corners of the mouth or make the upper teeth more visible. This is asking such an operation to do more than it is capabable of doing.

2) Implants can be done before, during or after a facelift.
