Question

I had an unwise and unsuccessful chin implant 6 years ago which had to be removed. The area then did not heal straight so my mouth slants downwards slightly to the right.

I think the stitches were too low on the right side. I am wondering if it is possible for it to be bonded slightly more up, so that my lip does not droop anymore, and if this could be at low cost.

I am starting out as a film actor, and though I have got good roles, I am still very conscious of my right side of my face.

Answer

It is difficult to visualise the problem that you describe without a formal examination.

It would be helpful to see in some photographs the appearance of the lower lip prior to the operation, to understand the degree of changes and therefore advise about what can be done to improve the symmetry.

Complete symmetry however is not possible in anybody, but the degree of improvement may be an option with a relatively small operation.
