The ideal length of the space between your nose and the vermilion border of the upper lip varies with gender. For females, this length usually ranges from 1.0-1.2 cm. Males typically have a longer space averaging 1.3cm-1.5cm. The amount of space longer than that measurement is considered to be the excess part. The result of the lip lift is a more youthful and pleasant shape to the mouth and lips. The teeth will show more and the patient almost always looks happier and relaxed.
