Lip service for the stiff upper lip PLASTIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY Zide, B. M., Bradley, J. P., Longaker, M. T. 2000; 105 (3): 1154-1158


Lip augmentation procedures can restore volume and shape to the aging, thin upper lip, but some patients may develop problematic lip tightness. This stiff upper lip is manifested by a restricted smile and an adynamic central upper lip. We have had success in treating postreconstruction and postaugmentation stiff upper lip with a therapeutic device and treatment regimen. This therapy alleviated tightness and inability to smile. Also, the change in lip commissure-to-commissure distance in repose and when smiling improved after treatment.
