I had a primary procedure done which left me with an overly long upper lip and a "monkey smile" where the upper lip bunches up when I smile. I am interested in getting an upper and lower lip lift but would also like to get a revision rhinoplasty done for a harmonious balance. I have read that these cannot be done at the same time, lip lift and rhinoplasty. So my question is this -> For best results long term, should I get the lip lift done before or after the revision rhinoplasty procedure?
Should I Get the Upper and Lower Lip Lift Before or After Revision Rhinoplasty?

Lip Lift and Revision Rhinoplasty
That is for the most part correct- I do not recommend having the upper
lip lift and rhinoplasty at the same time. Also, I am not sure what you
mean by lower lip lift. The order of the two procedures is best to have
the nose surgery first, then the lip lift can be performed as soon as 6
