Cause & concerns

Thin lips

Fuller lips are synonymous with attractiveness and youth. Some people are born with thin lips, creating facial disharmony.

Top lip thinning when smiling

When you smile certain facial muscles lift and curl your top lip. If your muscles are on the stronger side, it can seem like your top lip disappears completely.

Abnormal ratios

Lip imbalance results from discrepancies in shape, volume and support (from both your teeth and jaw bones).

Having ideal lip ratios is considered more attractive.

Poor definition

Often due to a lack of volume, poor lip definition blurs the boundaries of your lips.

Asymmetry

While slight asymmetry is normal for lips, prominent asymmetry can make your face and smile look crooked and uneven.

Ageing lips

With age your lips lose volume, becoming thin, deflated and developing wrinkles.
