Lip lift to decrease Philtrum length? (photos)
Doctor Answers 3
You are a perfect candidate for a lip lift which would remove a custom portion of skin beneath your nose to shorten your philtrum and raise your upper lip. There are modifications to the standard technique to minimize lip roll if needed. This would ensure your lips don't look "too big". Rhinoplasty could be done at the same time or after but care should be taken in designing the incisions so as to preserve blood supply for healing. Good luck!
