Lip Lift

The lip lift is done with local or sedative anesthesia depending on patient's desire. The incision is placed in the nasolabial creases and inside the nose.

Lip lift

I recommend the standard bullhorn type lip lift incision. This is done under local anesthesia, takes approximately 15 minutes, has excellent results and costs $2,000. The distance between your nose and upper lip is shortened, your upper lip is rolled out and your incisor show is increased.
