Will A Mouth Corner Lift Give Me A Better Smile?

Q: Dr. Eppley, 27 yo female who is unhappy with smile/avoid being in pictures. Desire for upturn of corners of mouth when smiling/more even smile.

A: Smiling is a dynamic facial movement while surgery is a static procedure. Thus at rest the corners must appear more upturned and the mouth wider for a bigger more upturned smile.
