Voluptuous lips are seen as a sign of beauty and youthfulness. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural aging process, if you are dissatisfied with your lips or the appearance of your mouth, a Lip Lift may be the answer you are looking for. There is no shortage of treatment options to plump up your pout, and if you are strictly looking to address lines around the mouth or temporarily add shape or volume to your lips, dermal fillers may be your best option. However, if you want to permanently plump your upper lip a surgical Lip Lift will give you the long-lasting results you desire.
What is an Upper Lip Lift?
A Lip Lift is a surgical procedure that removes extra skin between the nose and mouth, increasing the appearance of the upper lip. The procedure requires making a small incision around the base of your nose, carefully removing a small amount of skin, and securing your remaining skin with very small sutures so that it lifts the upper lip towards the nose. By doing this surgically, your lip will have additional height and will also have a more visible pout. Variations of the procedure can also be performed to expose your teeth when you smile or to correct a downturned mouth.
Who Is A Good Candidate For A Lip Lift?
A Lip Lift is a good solution for patients that naturally have thin lips as well as patients that have lost volume with age or have noticed an increase in the length between the base of their nose and their upper lip. Lifting this area can not only provide a pout but can also be used to achieve a more youthful appearance.
