Before & After of Corner mouth lift
This photo is a before & after of Corner mouth lift (Dr. Jeong, Tae-Kwang). To make better result, preoperative design is important.
The corner mouth lifting should not only lift the corner mouth but also consider the harmony with lips shape and face. For example, in the picture, Type A, B, and C all have lifted the corner mouth, but Type A looks so exaggerated because it lifted too high. Type B, on the other hand, result is not good. Comparing them, Type C is the most natural and better result. (based on the lip axis, the central part of the upper lip is thicker than low lip)
The ideal shape of mouth.
The ratios between the heights of the upper and lower lips should be 1:1.618, The volume of the lower lip is fuller than lower lip, and on the sagittal view the upper lip being 1-2mm more protruding than the lower lip. The oral commissure should be located inside of the line drawn vertically from the medial limbus of the iris, and not be drooping or descending.
