As we age, our lips lose their fullness, which makes them appear older. Lips descend because of loss of support. This distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip gets longer over time. The lip sometimes becomes so long that it hangs over the teeth. Others are born with naturally thin lips with a long white lip and thin red lips. Whether young or old, lip lift surgery can be performed if you are a good candidate for this operation.
A lip lift is an outpatient surgical procedure that shortens the space between the nose and the top of the lip. The procedure increases the amount of pink tissue that’s visible. And after the operation, the lips look fuller and more pronounced. It also increases how much of your upper central teeth show when your lips are resting. It’s a good option for people who want to add height instead of volume to their lips pink tissue. Unlike filler injections, lip lifts are a permanent solution.
