The lip lift is a surgical procedure that can help enhance lip volume and provide a more youthful, attractive appearance without the use of dermal fillers or transferred fat. As a Fellowship trained, board certified plastic surgeon in NYC, Dr. Hutchinson has a keen eye for the artistry and balance required to produce elegant and personalized lip contouring results.
How a Lip Lift Works
A small area of skin is removed just underneath the nose, which shortens the central portion of the lip called the philtrum. This subtly elevates the upper lip, causing it to appear fuller in a very natural way. This type of enhancement may be preferred by some patients over dermal fillers, which need to be repeated and also introduce foreign substances into the body.
