Individuals who are interested in enhancing their facial appearance, specifically around the lip area, may want to learn more about procedures such as the upper lip lift.
What is a lip lift?
While many women have used cosmetic injections such as dermal fillers to enhance the shape and size of their lips, there is another way to improve the appearance of the pout. With the upper lip lift, patients achieve permanent results, instead of scheduling regular injections of dermal fillers with a cosmetic surgeon.
The lip lift is a specialized in-office surgery that is performed to shorten the space that exists between the nose and the top lip called the philtrum. Patients interested in increasing the height of their upper lift versus just volume will find this procedure to be the best solution to their desires. It increases the pink lip tissue that is visible making the lips more pronounced and fuller than before. The procedure is highly desirable by patients who have thin lips or who want a more fuller appearance when the lips are in their resting position.
What types of upper lip lifts are available?
There are various approaches to lifting the upper lip. Dr. Ellen Mahony may suggest any of the below techniques:
- Direct lip lift
- Subnasal bullhorn
- Central lip lift
- Corner lip lift
- Italian lip lift
Determining the lift appropriate for an individual requires them to schedule a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with our team of professionals.
