Do I need a lip lift?
Doctor Answers 4
Is a lip lift needed?
An exam would be needed with measurements.
Your photo doesn't suggest a very long upper lip - but photos can be deceiving.
Measure your upper lip in millimeters.
If it is 11 mm (1.1 centimeters) - it is normal length.
If it is 20 mm (2 centimeters) - it is probably too long.
In between - shortening can be done but only a little.
A lip is never shortened less than 1.1. m m- and usually only by 24% of it existing length.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
