Before & after comparison of Lip Lift

A lip lift is a plastic surgery procedure that modifies the cosmetic appearance of the lips. The lip is reshaped to increase the red part (vermillion) and reduces the distance between the base of the nose and the lip (columella) into a more aesthetically pleasing shape.

If you have a long columella, then this can result in your lower face looking longer. The normal distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip generally is 1/3 of the distance between the lower lip and the base of the chin. Therefore, the lip-lift addresses these aspects and hence reduces the discrepancy and restores the anatomy to the correct ratio. If you have thin down turned corners of the lips then the valentine lip lift (corner lip lift) will help to restore this to give an upturned corner of the mouth.

What does this involve?

This is carried out under local anaesthetic as a day-case procedure. The skin is removed from either above the lip margin or just below the nose lip margin. The resulting wound is then closed with stitches that remain in place for 1 week.
