Alip lift is a procedure designed to lift the top lip in people who have a thin upper lip. It is a permanent solution and is most beneficial for those wishing to improve the perceived volume of their lips and aesthetic of their smile and facial proportions. A lip lift can also reduce the signs of ageing often prevalent around the mouth.
Lip lift surgery involves a surgeon carefully removing a small amount of skin under the nose in order to “lift” the upper lip. The procedure is performed as day surgery, usually under local anaesthetic. The procedure generally takes less than an hour. Lip lift surgery is tailored to each individual to ensure natural looking results are achieved.
It is worth noting that a lip lift is only performed on the top lip. Often lip fillers are also used in the bottom lip to create balanced, voluminous lips.
