What is a Lip Lift

A lip lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the appearance of the lips. It typically involves shortening the space between the nose and the upper lip (the philtrum), which helps to lift and accentuate the upper lip, making it appear fuller and more defined. The procedure is often sought by individuals looking to counteract signs of aging in the lip area or to improve the balance and aesthetics of their lips in relation to other facial features. It can also help in elevating drooping corners of the mouth, contributing to a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
