Would you like to restore the natural contours and youthful appearance of your lips? An upper lip lift may be just what you need. The procedure is becoming a popular alternative for those wanting fuller, shapelier lips. But are you a candidate for an upper lip lift. Let’s find out.
What is an upper lip lift?
An upper lip lift is a surgical procedure that is done to reshape and elevate the upper lip. It shortens the distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip, creating a more youthful smile.
The procedure involves removing a thin strip of skin from the area of the lip that is below the nose, thereby shortening the space above the upper lip. The scar from surgery is usually well hidden. The elevation of the lip exposes more teeth, and enhances the appearance of the upper lip.
An upper lip lift is an outpatient procedure that takes about 1-2 hours to complete. The results achieved are permanent (learn more).
Are you a candidate?
If you would like to add volume to your thin, flat lips, or if you’d like to make them appear more youthful, you would probably be a good candidate for an upper lip lift. An upper lip lift is also done by individuals with a long space above the upper lip, which hides the upper teeth when they smile.
An upper lip lift is beneficial on several levels, as it gives the lips a fuller appearance, with a very slight pout.
