About Lip Lift

A lip lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the upper lip by lifting and reshaping it. Also known as an upper lip advancement or upper lip rejuvenation, this procedure specifically targets the vermilion border (the edge of the coloured portion of the lips) to create a more defined and youthful look. During the surgery, a small incision is made either directly beneath the nose or within the natural crease of the nostrils, allowing the surgeon to lift the upper lip and expose more of the teeth, resulting in a fuller and more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Lip lifts are chosen by individuals who wish to address issues such as a long upper lip, reduced lip volume, or signs of ageing. The procedure is customisable, and patients can work with their plastic surgeon to achieve the desired balance and proportion for their facial features. Recovery is relatively quick, and the results can be long-lasting, providing a natural and harmonious enhancement to the overall facial profile. As with any cosmetic surgery, consultation with a doctor experience in cosmetic facial surgery is crucial to identifying individual goals, potential risks, and expected outcomes.
