Good afternoon doctor, I want the consul why I don’t have a curve under my nose? Is there a solution. I am often bullied by my friends. Please help me:'(

Hello Nadya,


Thank you for the question.

Curvature that is under the nose, and above the mouth, in the medical world is called philtrum. Not everyone has a clear philtrum. Conversely, there are also some people whose philtrum is wider and more concave so that it is more easily observed, even from a distance.


If you don't have a clear philtrum, you may experience smooth philtrum. This condition is actually not always a disorder. Could be, this naturally occurs due to genetic variations related to development from birth. Although indeed, sometimes, smooth philtrum can also be associated with a disease, such as mental retardation, genetic disorders (such as trisomy 17p112, Kallman syndrome, Gillessen-Kaesbach-Nishimura syndrome, Lehman syndrome), nephrotic syndrome, sialuria, post-injury or inflammation, effects beside certain medical procedures carried out around the nose or mouth, and so on.


As long as there are no other complaints that accompany, your condition really does not need to worry. In fact, with your typical philtrum, you will be more easily recognized from your other colleagues. This certainly will be very disturbing in some conditions, for example if natural disasters or calamities disappear.


However, if indeed the complaint appears along with other complaints that interfere, or if you feel very disturbed by the form of your philtrum, you can consult further with your doctor at the nearest health facility. In some cases, if it is felt necessary, maybe the doctor will refer you to a plastic surgeon later to get the right treatment.


I hope this helps.
