In brief: It depends . . .

An upper lip lift does elevate the position of the upper lip by shortening the skin that is between the upper lip and the base of the nose.
It is a generally well tolerated. You will need to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for the upper lip lift or not. (http://www.cosmeticsurg.net/procedures/lip-lift/) Best wishes!

In brief: A

A lip lift can be performed in carefully selected patients.
The lip is shortened by removing the excess skin. This incision is placed along the nostril openings and usually heals well. You will notice an improvement virtually instantly, the swelling will resolve over 1-2 weeks. As always, there are risks to surgery, these include bleeding, infection, scar, and temporary numbness in the area.
