Sagging mouth corners "wrinkles of sadness"

The drooping mouth corners are also called "wrinkles of sadness" as they give the face an expression of sadness, causing associations with helplessness and a tendency to complain. Is this a manifestation of character?


Not really. The reasons of "wrinkles of sadness" are objective and age-related: reduction of cheek volume and skin elasticity makes it hang over this area. These changes are more evident at 35-40s even when you are calm; it looks like you are sad and depressed. Drooping mouth corners can be inherited as well. These people are usually asked -"Why are you sad?" - not only in difficult moments. We think everyone agrees that the situation is not pleasant and they want to get rid of the wrinkles despite of reason.
