Droopy lip corners?

Can lip fillers be done to only certain parts of the lip?

Absolutely! It’s possible to deposit a small amount of filler just under the corner of the lips, giving a slight lift to the corners. Another trick is to inject a small amount of anti-wrinkle injections, only a few units each side, to a muscle called depressor angularis oris (DAO). This muscle attaches to the corner of the lips and pulls it downwards. If you make your mouth frown strongly, you can probably see this muscle working. A small amount of anti-wrinkle injections will slightly weaken this muscle, meaning that the corners of the lips won’t be pulled downwards as much.
