Lip Lift

Is a Lip Lift Right For You?

Lip lift (also known as subnasal lip lift or upper lip lift) is an upper lip enhancement procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. It shortens the distance between the upper lip and the nose (known as the philtrum) causing an outward turn of the upper lip which makes it look fuller and lifter.

Who is a Candidate for a Lip Lift?

As we age, the space between the nasal base and the upper lip becomes longer which makes the upper lip thinner, flatter and longer. Some people are born with a long upper lift. Upper lift lip is a great procedure that provides instant upper lip enhancement.

Unlike lip fillers, lip lift surgery delivers permanent results but it cannot make your lips significantly fuller. This surgery is a perfect choice for patients looking for enhancement of a Cupid’s bow and a subtle increase in lip volume. It can be done under local anesthesia, and the downtime is minimal with a hidden incision in the nose.
