what procedure will prevent my lips moving all the way up when I smile

Q. I don’t like my smile because I show my gums at the top which makes me feel really conscious when I laugh, what procedure (if any) will prevent my lips moving all the way up when I smile and especially when I laugh?

A. Hi many thanks for your email, you could have lip repositioning surgery for a permanant solution. if surgery is off putting a quick non surgical method would be botox in the upper lip to immobilise the upper lip, this would last for around 4 months before it would need redoing. hope this is helpful.
