Plastic Surgery’s Did You Know? Lip Lifts


Lip augmentation is a very familiar and popular procedure. By injecting a variety of substances into the lips, they become bigger and more sensual. But not all lip issues can be adequately treated by injectable fillers alone, particularly older lips. Lips as they age often get longer, thinner and turn down at their corners. Adding volume rarely is the best solution. Facelift surgery does little to benefit the mouth area. But unlike the face, the lips can also be lifted. A lip lift can shorten the upper lip and give it more pout through an incision under the nose. The downturned corners can be reversed by a corner of the mouth lift. Volume through injectable fillers can also be done at the same time for additional rejuvenation. This look is consistent with what is portrayed in the sensous lips of models who have a short upper with a pout and a turned-up mouth. Such changes in the older lip can not be done with injections alone.
