A Lip Lift is a surgical procedure that addresses an elongated lip. As we go through the aging process, the upper lip elongates and loses definition centrally. Often patients have used HA fillers to address the thinning lip. While fillers are effective for achieving a fuller lip, it is not possible to shorten the skin of the lip with filler.

Our Preferences:

In our hands, a lip lift does more than just shorten the height of the upper lip. We accentuate natural aesthetic features, enhancing highlights and adding shadows to the central lip (Cupid’s bow). The incision is meticulously placed along the base of the nose and closed with very fine sutures. The results are natural, elegant and permanent.
