Re: Surgery for lip incompetence

I see you had for promlars extracted. sorry for me I your face is not that long. also you seem to have little gummy smile.so the surgery to correct this called maxillary impaction .similar to lefort . it makes your face shorter and will conceal the little gum when you smile.
