Why this procedure?
The lips are one of the most attractive features of a person’s face. Rich, colorful, fleshy lips are a sign of good health as well as a very sexy attribute. The sad thing is, time takes its toll on them too, making them thinner or hang down over your teeth, causing the gap between your nose and your mouth to become greater. If this is the case, a lip lift is just what you need.
What happens during a lip lift?
During this procedure, our surgeons remove a tiny strip of skin and tissue between your mouth and your nose, then they tighten the muscle and raise the upper lip to a new position. As a result, your upper lip will increase in volume and your mouth will have a more aesthetic proportion. If necessary, dermal filing, fat or collagen can be injected on the lips to give them a fuller, more sensual look.
You’ll be amazed at the new shape and form your lips and mouth will acquire. You’ll look happier and younger . . . and let’s just say kissing will get better too.
