I am a 28-year old mum who was born with downturned lips, heavy jowls and a speech impediment. Although I may not be able to change the impediment, I hear there may be treatments or procedures that can upturn my lips and significantly lift or reduce the heaviness of my jowls as well. I am now ready to go under the knife but am unsure of what treatments or surgery entail.

If you have downturned lips with heavy jowls and a speech impediment, I wonder what the underlying cause is. I think you need a consultation with a plastic surgeon. You may benefit from a facelift surgery, or even a thread lift of the midface with a Botulinum toxin induced Nefertiti lift of the jaw line and into the depressor muscles of the mouth angles. This will definitely help.
