Upper Lip Lift In Orlando

What Is An Upper Lip Lift?

Upper lip lift shortening surgery is a procedure used to reduce the space between the bottom of a patient’s nose and upper lip (also known as the philtrum) while increasing the upper lip’s size. Many patients are bothered by the length of their philtrum due to a variety of reasons such as their upper lip covering too much of their teeth or they feel it makes them look more “masculine”. Others wish to undergo upper lip lift surgery because their lips are asymmetrical or they wish to achieve a permanently fuller upper lip without the use of fillers.

How Is An Upper Lip Lift Performed?

Upper lip lift surgery is performed under local anesthesia and should only take about an hour. Your plastic surgeon will essentially remove a wedge of skin between your nostrils and upper lip to enhance the position, size, and appearance of your lip. We are able to tailor the results based on your individual needs - some patients may want a more defined area below the nostrils, called the “Cupid’s Bow”, or a more subtle change in the lips.

Ideal Candidates

Who Is A Good Candidate For Upper Lip Lift Surgery?

Patients decide to undergo an upper lip lift for a variety of reasons. If you identify with any of the following, then you might be a good candidate for an upper lift lip:

  • Asymmetrical lips
  • Thin lips

Why Get An Upper Lift Lip Instead Of Fillers?

Many patients opt for an upper lip lift over injectables because they are tired of the upkeep required to maintain their lip enhancements, they want to ensure that their lip enhancements look consistent, or they simply want a more permanent solution. Additionally, if the space between a patient’s nose and lips is already naturally long, fillers can sometimes result in the dreaded “duck lips” look where your upper lip pushes out rather than lifting up.
