A lip lift procedure creates the appearance of a fuller upper lip by reducing the length of the philtrum, which is the tissue between the nose and upper lip. This increases the amount of pink tissue that is visible in the upper lip for a fuller appearance while also creating a more proportionate, balanced look. In addition, a lip lift may be performed to correct downturned corners of the lips, creating a more pleasant resting appearance. Lip lifts require little downtime and can be completed under local anesthesia, reducing risks and the overall recovery period.LEARN MORE
