LipLift is a procedure to correct the shape of the upper lip.
THE surgery AND TO WHOM IT IS ADDRESSED
Anatomically the upper lip is divided into 2 parts. The first is the white upper lip which is the part from the base of the nose to the contour of the lip. The second part is the red upper lip which is essentially the rest of the upper lip below the contour.
Over time, what happens in the area is an increase in the length of the white upper lip, a turning inwards and a decrease in the volume of the red upper lip. This situation cannot be corrected with traditional fillers with hyaluronic acid.
With this procedure we can restore the proportions of a young lip or even create them in lips that never had them.
The intervention is therefore aimed at those who
They have a long white upper lip due to age or by construction
Abnormalities in the contour, drop on the sides
They wish to renew the image of their lips in a perfectly natural way
The basic technique is performed with a small incision at the base of the nose, which after healing is almost invisible due to special ways of suturing and placing the incision in natural grooves.
In other cases, it can be combined with some internal incisions or with lip fat transfer when we want to increase the volume of the lips.
