Drooping Mouth Corners

Introduction to downturned lips / drooping mouth corners

Down turned mouth corners gives a sad and old look to the face even when you are not sad. This makes the face aesthetically less pleasing.

As we age the collagen and elastin fibers of the skin reduce making the skin lax, simultaneously soft tissue volume loss along with gravity brings the cheek downwards and results in down turned mouth corners.

Another important cause of down turned lips or mouth corner is the over activity of DAO (Depressor Anguli Oris) muscle. This is a facial muscle that begins from the jaw line and attaches to the corner of the mouth. Its contraction brings the corner of the mouth downwards and closer to the jawline. Over activity of this muscle is easily correctable with anti-wrinkle injections.

At Kalpana Aesthetics we evaluate the entire face as a whole and suggest the best customized treatment plan for you.
