Reduces space above : If you have a long space between the base of your nose and the top of your upper lip, you may be a candidate for a lip lift. The lip lift reduces the amount of space between. It will raise your upper lip slightly so that a small amount of your teeth can be seen when your lips are in the resting position. This gives a youthful and refreshing appearance to the entire face . My patients love it!
