I am only 26 years old but my mouth looks pouty, and not in a sexy way.

Question:

I am only 26 years old but my mouth looks pouty, and not in a sexy way. If I am not smiling, it seems like the skin to both sides of my mouth is too loose or thick. Is that fat in the cheeks? Would a mid-facelift address this problem?

Answer:

To address this question it is very difficult to give guidance without a photograph. It may be that your cheeks are a little too full or perhaps your lips or chin are a little bit on the weak side. Certainly there are things that can be done in that area to improve the cheek/lip region but without a photograph it is very difficult to tell. For example, a patient who has thin lips may benefit best from some conservative plumping of the lip and pre-jowl area with a soft tissue filler. A somewhat weak chin area may benefit from a conservative chin augmentation and patients with very round full cheeks would benefit most from a buccal fat pad removal. Regardless, this can be discussed considerably more in detail in an official consultation.
