According to the website realself.com, 85% of those who get lift lips consider them “worth it.” A lip lift is a small change in your face that can have a surprising impact. Only a facial plastic surgeon with a lot of experience can tell you if you need one.
A lip lift, unlike augmentation, doesn’t actually make the lips any bigger. Instead, it balances the upper and lower lips if the upper lip is a little too narrow. Facial plastic surgeons have found that the perfect balance between the lips is for the upper lip to occupy about a third of the space between the base of the nose and the tip of the chin. The surgeon tightens the upper lip and brings it out a little more. This can usually be done in the surgeon’s office, resulting in only a little swelling and bruising, plus the sutures. Don’t put on makeup until they’re out, which should take five or six days.
