Lip Lift Melbourne

Lip Lift Surgery is a Procedure That Lifts the Top Lip to Provide A Natural, Subtle Change.

About Upper Lip Lift Surgery

Lip lift surgery is performed on adults and is designed to lift the top lip in people who have a “thin” lip.

Lip lift plastic surgery involves the surgeon operating above the lip line to make the hidden lip more visible.

The aim of the procedure is to reduce the space between the nose and the top of the lip (the philtrum), essentially raising the lip upwards to create a larger top lip.

An upper lip lift is also suitable for those who have a drooping top lip, whether due to genetics, medical conditions, or the natural ageing process, the top lip hangs low, covering the upper teeth. This is called lip ptosis.

Lip Lift vs Lip Fillers

When most people think of plumping up their lips, their first thought might be dermal fillers, a common procedure found in all kinds of skin and beauty clinics.

Lip fillers are designed to increase the size and volume of the lip by injecting product into the skin. Typically, fillers last around 6-12 months; over time, our bodies will naturally break it down, it will exit the body, and the lips will return to their original state. As such, maintenance appointments are needed.

The length of time lip fillers last will vary depending on lifestyle factors as well as your age, skin type, and condition of the skin.

The advantage of top lip lift surgery is that unlike fillers, results are permanent. A lip lift can:

  • Improve your smile
  • Show more of your teeth when smiling and talking
  • Balance out your facial features

Best of all, it is a permanent fix!
