As we age, the length of the distance from the base of the nose to the upper lip increases, which makes the lip look smaller and less youthful. A lip lift procedure is a small intervention done under local anesthesia where an area of skin is removed at the base of the nose to shorten the distance from the nasal base to the lip. This has the effect to show more of the upper lip which makes the upper lip look fuller. The result is permanent. This procedure is performed in the office and the recovery is 1-2 weeks for the skin to heal.
