Lip Lift Facial Plastic Surgeon

Does your upper lip appear thin, inverted or flattened? Is the distance between the nose and your upper lip too long? Does your upper lip hide your teeth? Perhaps your upper lip is too heavy in relation to your lower lip, or maybe the effects of aging have caused your lips to lose fullness. Whatever the case, a lip lift has become a trusted lip procedure that restores and refreshes the appearance of the upper lip, with more permanent and satisfying results than lip augmentation or lip injections.

In essence, a lip lift procedure involves removing excess skin in the upper lip in and shortens its vertical length. Several techniques are used to accomplish this including a "lip roll" method in which a small incision is made along the border of the upper lip. The sub-nasale upper lip lift uses a technique in which a small incision is made beneath the nose where it meets the upper lip.

What can a lip lift accomplish?

  • Give the mouth and lips a more sensuous look
  • Decrease the length of skin from the nose to the pink lip
  • Improve visibility of the upper teeth
  • Make the upper lip more voluptuous and fuller
  • Evert the upper lip
  • Rejuvenate the upper lip and mid-face
  • Eliminate or diminish the need for filler injection into the lips

Cosmetic Lip Enhancement Surgery

For patients bothered by the appearance of a long upper lip, or for those concerned that their upper lip is hiding too much of their teeth when they smile, cosmetic lip enhancement surgery is a suitable solution to elevate the upper lip, creating a more confident, relaxed smile.

While an upper lip lift shortens the distance between the upper lip and the nose, a corner lip lift involves the corners of a patient's mouth for those that feel that they have a permanent frown expression.
