A youthful, sensual lip is one that is full and balanced, with a few millimeters of upper tooth show when the mouth is in repose. Dr. Brace offers two main procedures for lip enhancement. Kitchener and Milton residents are a quick drive away. One popular solution is to fill the lips with a hyaluronic acid filler. This result is temporary. The other solution is a lip lift procedure which affords a more permanent result. A consultation with Dr. Brace is the best way to determine which procedure is best for you.
Who is a candidate for a lip lift?
When the skin between the nose and the upper lip is excessively long it gives an aged appearance to the lower face. Candidates for an upper lip lift are women who have a small upper lip, a long philtrum (skin between the nose and lip), asymmetry of the upper lip, a heavy upper lip from excess lip filler, severely wrinkled upper lip skin, minimal to no upper tooth show, and those seeking facial feminization.
Rarely men also seek this surgery to correct lip asymmetry or an elongated philtrum.
