LIP LIFT SURGERY GOLD COAST
Lip Lift Surgery involves reducing the height between the base of the nose and the border of the lip.
- Gives a more youthful look to the top lip
- Can be performed under local anaesthetic at The Lotus Institute Clinic at Southport or day stay surgery
- Can be combined with laser to top lip skin
With ageing and sometimes in younger people the top lip can become elongated giving an aged look with reductions of the pink border of the lip and coverage of the top teeth. While injections of dermal fillers to the top lip will increase the fullness of the top lip, a surgical lip lift can reduce the distance between the base of the nose and the pink border of the top lip giving a more youthful appearance.
WHAT IS A LIP LIFT?
A Lip Lift involves making a small wavy incision across the base of the nose and taking a few millimetres of skin from the top lip and suturing together with dissolving sutures to reduce the height of the lip.
It will evert the pink border of the lip and give a more youthful top lip without a “trout pout” look.
