A lip lift can help improve visible signs of aging by enhancing the appearance of the upper lip. Such indicators as a long upper lip, down-turned corner of the lip, covering of the upper teeth by the upper lip or smoker’s lines may cause unwelcome effects and an older appearance.
Dr. Barrett offers various types of lip lift procedures, including a central lip lift, which shortens the upper lip and uncovers the upper teeth. A lip lift procedure can also help to increase the show (or that red portion of the upper lip) by decreasing the distance between the nose and the upper lip. This type of cosmetic facial enhancement does not necessarily augment the lip, but helps to elevate the upper lip area to make it appear larger. The incision is easily hidden at the base of the nose.
