Hi, everyone, I\'ll try to be as brief as possible.
I\'m a male close to 30 years old. I just had a lip lift to rejuvenate my upper lip. The result was very nice, but I couldn\'t achieve my real goal, which is to be able to show my upper teeth when my mouth is relaxed, like most young people do. If the Doctor lifts it again, another 3-4 mm, I\'ll achieve my goal, but I\'m worried about the following:
Currently, my nose to upper lip distance is about 15 mm and my lower lip to chin distance is about 36 mm (I have very thin lips). That is, right now my nose to lip distance is only about 29.5% of my overall nose to chin distance (51 mm). I think this is not very aesthetic, since I believe my chin looks too long already. If the distance between my nose and upper lift becomes only 10 or 11 mm, my chin will look even longer, as the new nose to lip ratio would only be 23.5%, from the overall nose to chin distance.
I just want to know the opinion of other people, on what is an aesthetic and unaesthetic ratio, for distances between nose to lip and lip to chin, to have an idea if 23.5% is not a completely unaesthetic (or even weird-looking) ratio.
I really want my upper teeth to show and make me look younger, so I don\'t want to discard the 3-4 mm new upper lip lift. Instead, I\'d like to know how to reduce the distance between my lower lip and chin, but I can\'t afford an expensive genioplasty (chin bone reduction), and I don\'t believe it would work anyways, based on other people\'s experiences.
Any suggestions for surgery or other procedures to reduce lower lip to chin distance?
Sorry for the lengthy message, any comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
