What is a lip lift?
Most lip enhancement involves making lips bigger, usually with fillers. For a significant number of patients, elevating the upper lip smaller via a lip lift is the more appropriate aesthetic procedure.

What is the lip lift procedure like?
As mentioned above, the lip lift is a very simple and straightforward surgical procedure that can be done alone, or in combination with other facial procedures (rhinoplasty, facelift, etc). The procedure begins with skin markings on your upper lip based on the surgical plan you design with your surgeon. Next, numbing medicine is injected into the area similar to a dental procedure. Once ready, the necessary portion of skin just beneath the nose is gently removed and any light bleeding is controlled. The incision is then closed with many small sutures to create the most cosmetic result possible. Following the procedure, the area is kept covered with antibiotic ointment and sutures are removed starting several days later.
