Lip lift - good idea?
- Your lip doesn't look long in the photo but if it is 20 mm then it is quite long.
- It sounds as though a lip lift is a good solution for you.
- on average we reduce the lip 25% - some people want more but they have to take the risk because once shortened, the lip can't be lengthened again.
- There is not an ideal - the ideal varies from face to face.
- But a study has shown that the average length at age 30 is 11 mm, this does not make it everyone's idea but can be used as a guide.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
