Lip Lift


Full lips are a sign of youth and beauty. The popularity of lipstick and filler treatment to accentuate lips serves to highlight how highly society values this beauty trait

As we get older the fullness of our lips decreases. This is accentuated by the distance between the nostril and upper lip increasing. This results in the typically thin upper lip of older age.

Using a filler can help but it only adds volume to the lip and does nothing to correct the imbalance in length of the upper lip. Excess filler can deform the appearance of the upper lip.

A surgical lip lift is an ideal solution in this situation. It reduces the distance between the nose and the upper lip and also rotates out the upper lip making it look plumper and full
