Can lip lift incisions be placed or hidden within the nose?

Unfortunately, lip lift incisions need to be placed either in the crease at the base of the nose or along the line where the red and white portions of the lip come together. When properly designed and very carefully closed, these incisions typically heal very nicely over time. I hope this information is helpful.
