Upper lip shortening is a procedure where we remove about 3 or 4 mm of carefully marked, upper lip skin, just beneath the nose. This has the effect of shortening the distance between the nose and the lip border (vermillion) to give the upper lip a gentle “pout” and restore the “cupid’s bow”. Like upper eyelid surgery, the scar is hidden and is generally very well concealed.
Initial swelling and bruising associated with this procedure is generally settled with in a week. The sutures are removed at the 5th day after the operation. Potential risks and complications are few and are discussed at the time of the initial consultation. Most patients are able to go back to work within 7 days.
Upper lip shortening is an effective and relatively simple procedure to restore a more youthful appearance to the upper lip with a well concealed scar. It avoids the excessive “trout pout” appearance seen sometimes when fillers are used in this area.
Cost of lip lift surgery is $3,850. The results last for 15 to 20 years.

The practice of aesthetic medicine and surgery is as much an art as it is a science. The aesthetic sense of a clinician in evaluating a patient is as important as his or her clinical skills. At Medisculpt®, our philosophy is to artistically enhance your appearance in a way that stresses elegance over glamour.
