Lip Lift Surgery

With ageing, the contours of the face start to sag, whereby the distance between the nose and the upper lip becomes larger, and the upper lips lose volume. This may give your face a grumpy, disapproving appearance. Also, a lower upper lip can hide the teeth, making your smile a little measured. A lip lift reduces the distance between the nasal tip and the upper lip, causing the upper lip to look fuller, your smile to look more welcoming, and your face to regain its friendly, youthful appearance.


The surgeon makes two butterfly-shaped incisions underneath your nose and removes a thin strip of skin, after which he shortens the muscles of the upper lip. Then the incision is sutured; the scar is almost completely hidden in the crease under your nostrils. This procedure can be combined with fillers to increase your upper lip's volume.
