What would give me a better smile?
Facelift

I had orthognathic surgery to correct an underbite. I've also had a midface lift in 2009 and neck lift to remove some of the redundant tissue after the bone removal/adjustment. I find my smile relatively unaesthetic. I don't like the dark buccal corridors and amount of tooth show, and find that my cheek, while voluminous, don't have much definition. I think I look young for 41, which is nice; at the same time, I want a more pleasant, easy, larger smile. What do you recommend?
