During social interactions, we are naturally drawn to someone else’s face, especially the lips, whether it is to help determine what words are spoken, what emotions are conveyed, or what non-verbal cues are attached to their feelings. While younger men and women are sometimes susceptible to drooping or sagging at the outer corners of the mouth, age plays a large role in how the lips and mouth change over time. As we age, the skin of our upper lip becomes longer with the pink lip becoming thinner, reversing the favorable upper lip ratios. Because of this, many clients become self-conscious of the appearance of their lips. Many individuals who are unhappy with the shape or size of their lips can become self-conscious. An upper lip lift is a great solution for those who wish to achieve a more prominent upper lip restoring that youthful look or to improve the symmetry between the top and bottom lip.
