Upper Lip Lift
An Upper Lip Lift, also known as Bullnose Lip Lift, is intended for patients who desire improved balance and fullness to the mid upper lip region.
An unbalanced aesthetic appearance of the mouth region, due to a vertically elongated upper lip (measured from the base of the nose to the white rolled edge of the upper lip).
By shortening the upper lip vertical height, this procedure will result in a more full upper lip and a shorter, more aesthetically pleasing and balanced appearance to the region of the mouth.
