Wrinkles: Although the technical name for a facelift is rhytidectomy, it does not remove wrinkles, per se. However, by replacing sagging tissues and removing excess skin, some wrinkles are less apparent. After facelift surgery, there is less of an accordion effect of the excess skin falling on itself.

I have a big lower lip, part of it goes in my mouth& burns is there a surgery I could have 2 get rid of the pooch w/o getting rid of my lips fullness?

I have a big lower lip, part of it goes in my mouth& burns is there a surgery I could have 2 get rid of the pooch w/o getting rid of my lips fullness?

Identify cause first: Yes, surgical lip reduction can help reduce excess tissues but I am not sure what is causing the lip burning or whether that will dissipate following any surgery. See your pcp to diagnose the problem. If you have an inflammatory condition then that may cause burning sensation and may even cause some swelling and if that is treated then you may not need any surgery.

How can I get rid of the bad taste in my mouth after my wisdom teeth surgery? I rinse with salt water after I eat

Bad taste: . Do you have pain? Swelling? Stitches? Keep rinsing with salt water. Did the oral surgeon give you a syringe to irrigate the area with? Sometimes there is an unpleasant taste because of the healing process going on. Sometimes it can be from food debris stick in the hole. See the extracting dentist about this. It is the best way to get an answer.

What can I do to get rid of dry skin around my mouth?

What can I do to get rid of dry skin around my mouth?

My first question: Is are you a lip licker, which commonly creates dryness around the mouth. If yes, it needs to stop or you will never clear the dryness. If not a lip licker, what kind of lip stick are you using. I prefer ones with sunscreen as sun exposure will dry your skin.

I always get bad acne around my mouth and chin. What is the best way to get rid of irritating acne?

Sequence: Benzoyl peroxide is the best over-the-counter remedy; I've had success with adding prescribed topical Clindamycin and replacing benzoyl peroxide with a retinoic acid derivative if lots of blackheads. Next step if needed is a systemic antibiotic that's right for the person or the oral contraceptive pill for a woman who can & wants to take it. Dermatologists have the big guns.

A diastema between: Maxillary central incisors due to a thick and inferiorly attached labial frenum/frenulum can be surgically removed via a frenectomy or frenuloplasty and then the teeth can be brought together via orthodontics. This would be one instance where surgery can help eliminate a gap between teeth.

Lisps: Don't know of any such procedure. Therapy can help with muscular aspect of speech and orthodontics or dental work may be of benefit. Jaw plastic surgery (orthognathic) can change the position of the teeth relative to reach other but is mostly used to affect chewing. Would start with a speech therapist.
