What is a Lip Lift?

A lip lift is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the amount of pink lip visible to others by shortening the space between the nose and the top of the lip. With lip lift surgery, patients can increase their lip fullness and give their lips a youthful appearance.

Lip Lift Surgery vs. Lip Filler

Lip lifts and lip fillers are both available at SkinDC, but it is important to note the differences in both of these treatments.

  • A lip lift delivers permanent results. The procedure can be performed under general or local anesthesia. It involves an incision made into the crease at the bottom of the nose and removal or repositioning of skin and tissue to lift the upper lip.
  • Lip fillers are used to give the lips a youthful appearance. They consist of hyaluronic acid and can deliver results that last about six months.
