Lip lift surgery is performed on adults and is designed to lift the top lip.
Lip lift plastic surgery involves the surgeon operating above the lip line to make the top lip more visible.
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, using either general or local anaesthetic. The procedure usually takes less than an hour.
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.
It is worth noting that a lip lift is only performed on the top lip. It is a permanent solution whereas using fillers in your lips is not permanent.
