Hello skakakzylls - Thanks for your question.  It is best for you to be evaluated in person to measure your lip length to determine the amount of lift necessary.  Normal lip height from the base of the columella to the vermillion border is 12-15mm.  However, the lip height after surgery should be based on the need to blend the lip into the rest of the face.  The measurement is not an absolute. Good luck, Dr. Shah
