A lip lift is a small surgical procedure done under local anesthesia that can restore or enhance the eversion of the upper lip showing more of the teeth and creating more of a pout rather than a horizontal protrusion or shelf.
As we age we lose bone structure support, and tissues tend to stretch and hang lower. This creates a flatter, less perky lip. Removing a small amount of skin with an incision hidden below to the nose, the lip is elevated and lifted upward, restoring it to a more natural position. This beautiful result is accomplished without constant injections or the risk of overfilling.
