Lip lift - how much can be removed

Thank you for asking about your lip lift.
  • As a general guide, 25% or in your case, 5.5 mm, is usually removed.
  • The reduction can be made more, or less, depending on the look you want 
  • When the lip is as long as yours, it is reasonable to take a little more.
