Upper Lip Lift London

Lip Lift Surgery is a Specialist Plastic Surgery operation to create a more feminine upper lip shape by removing tissue from just below the nose. This effectively lifts the upper lip and improves the shape but does not add fullness.

If you are concerned about the appearance of your upper lip shape, due to a long philtrum and reduced upper lip, and would like to achieve a more feminine appearance, then Lip Lift Plastic Surgery may be suitable for you. Botulinum toxin treatment may also be beneficial to relax the active muscle in the upper lip and reduce lines and wrinkles. You should be aware of the side effects and risks before deciding if Lip Lift Plastic Surgery is right for you.
