Lip lift for fuller looking lip
Great question. There is certainly more than one way to perform the lip lift procedure. The important step to achieve a fuller looking lip is the release of the lip complex from the underlying musculature. This allows the red portion of the lip to be rolled upwards to provide fullness and upturn without actually elevating the lip itself (significantly). The distance between the nose and lip becomes shorter and there is more red show on the upper lip. There is a significant amount of artistry in facial plastic surgery and the lip lift is no exception. Good luck! - Dr. C.
