Why you should opt for a lip lift?

Ageing is inevitable. As we start to age the skin starts to stretch and loses collagen which gives rise to the formation of deep lines and wrinkles. One of the common changes that we ignore most often is the elongation of the upper lip. As the facial muscles and skin lose their elasticity and start to sag, the upper lip may slowly start to extend slightly lover and cover the front teeth. This may cause the upper lip to appear thinner than it was before.


If you are one of those who are bothered by the position or the shape of their lips, then this procedure is for you. As we age the pink tissues of the lips slowly turn inwards. The upper lip measurement which is ideally 2mm of the teeth with mouth open may begin to lower. In some situations, the teeth are also naturally hidden. Lip Lift fixes exactly that.


What happens during the procedure?
