What is a Lip Lift?

The Lip Lift (Upper Lip Lift) is a surgical procedure designed to permanently rejuvenate the lips by reshaping the upper lip. The distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip is shortened by removing excess skin and lifting the lip muscle, SMAS and skin. These proportional changes allow for more upper teeth show when one smiles and while speaking. Short upper lips with teeth show is one of the signs of youth. Patients who have a relatively long and thin upper lip, with complete upper teeth coverage when resting the mouth open may want to consider upper lip surgery. In addition, individuals who have tried to plump their lips with fillers, but the filler caused their lips to appear long and heavy may want to consider having upper lip surgery to aesthetically improve their lips and restore lip proportion. At ME Plastic Surgery, Dr Miotto performs awake lip lifts under local anesthesia or asleep with deep sedation in the operating room. It is such a transformative procedure in facial rejuvenation!
