V to Y Lip advancement

Please help! I had an lip reduction and I hate it. I would like to potentially reverse it as much as possible. When I smile my top lip is tight and tapers in and does not curl up instead it curls under and is flat. I need the VY lip advancement performed to curl my lip back up and give me fullness again. I was referred to check out oral surgeons but I’m just not getting any luck.

Without photos it is not possible to answer your question. Most lip lifts are done with an incision under the nose. A

V to Y advancement of the inside of the lip will not reverse the lip lift. I would caution doing surgery too soon after the lip lift. There are many fine plastic surgeons in Dallas. I would seek their consultation to discuss your aptions.
