Can A Reverse Corner Of The Mouth Lift Be Done?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have an unusual question. I know you are an expert at the corner of the mouth lift. My lips turn up at the sides too much as it is. Is there  any way you could perform a subtle corner of the mouth ‘drop’…a reverse corner of the mouth lift if you will. This would be a reverse procedure. When I pull my lips down slightly they look as good as possible and being a professional entertainer I could really use this improvement. Also can the lower lip be lengthened slightly– thank u so much for your time!

A: I have to admit that I have never done a ‘reverse’ corner of the mouth lift nor has anyone ever requested it before. But like a traditional corner of the mouth lift, the reverse can be done I am sure. Some lengthening of the lower lip could be done at the same time. Unlike the corner of the lift which is done on the upper lip, a corner of the mouth ‘drop’ would be done on the lower lip.

I would need to see pictures of your mouth to give a more qualified opinion.
