Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal
Lip Service for the Stiff Upper Lip

By Barry M. Zide, M.D., James P. Bradley, M.D., Michael T. Longaker, M.D.

ABSTRACT
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 a dynamic central upper lip. We have had success in treating post-reconstruction and post-augmentation 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.
