Lip lift: Aesthetic touch between the nose and the lips

The lip lift, also known as the shortening of the upper lip, is aimed at patients who are unhappy with the length of their upper lips. If you look at it, I mean the upper lip, I'm talking about the distance between the upper lip and the nose.


We say the area between the columellar base (the middle column below the nose) and the reddish pink of the dorsal as we would like to express it a little more medically. For the most part, the ideal length of this area is said to be 12-15 millimeters. But of course, this range also varies depending on the facial features of the people and even the size of the face. Lip Lift is an operation demanded by our patients when they are far beyond these measurements and even at an abnormally long time.


Many patients who are interested in this procedure, which may be referred to as upper lip removal or ablation of the upper lip, should be clearly visible when they are resting, ie when they are not making lip movements. The vertical length of the upper lip is almost the lower lip-chin length, and a lip lift operation can be considered to create even more harmony and balance even with this condition. Most of the patients complain about this, they say that this long distance makes them feel sad, even tired and even a little stupid. I do not know how much ...


In addition, when the upper lip is so long, the teeth are not visible when they smile and they are deprived of the tooth image from the smiling face, which is extremely aesthetic.


In fact, the application of lip-lift is extremely simple. At the point where the upper lip region and the nose meet, an incision is made under the full nose. The length we will accept will be deducted.


After the excess skin is removed, it is stitched together. It is important to close the incisions in layers because it is vital that the seams are placed under the skin in order to maintain the shape of the lid and to provide sufficient force. Once the deep stitch has been placed, the edges of the skin are carefully aligned to make the cut as visually as possible.


The average improvement is recorded within 1 week. It is possible that the first few days have edema.


I see that not only women but also men suffer from this issue and are striving to camouflage the width in this area by leaving stupid mustaches. If you are interested, I would like to mention that aesthetic surgeon can also get help in this regard.


Take good care of your body and soul
