The upper lip region is a central part of the facial aesthetics, which cannot be enhanced permanently with lip fillers. The upper lip lift is a permanent surgical procedure, which raises the vermilion border, making the lip look fuller.

There are many types of lip lifts, and your surgeon will pick the right technique keeping all your expectations in mind:
The patient may feel a little uncomfortable just after the lip lift surgery, as there will be a little swelling and a feeling of tightening. After a few days, the swelling starts subsiding sharply, and within four weeks, it would vanish completely.
The patient may be given antiviral and antibiotics in order to prevent the infections caused by bacteria and viruses. A patient may be asked to apply an ointment to promote the healing on the incision site and to reduce the appearance of any scars.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia and takes less than an hour. The surgery shortens the space between the top of the lips and the bottom of the nose. It may sound complicated, but the procedure actually is simple and painless. Patients love the results, which give them aesthetically pleasing lips along with a more youthful appearance.
The procedure is not recommended for candidates with active infections around the mouth like lupus, herpes, blood clotting diseases, and diabetes.

The new procedure is performed in such a way that it offers lip lift with minimum scarring within the nostrils.
