The goal of the Lip Lift procedure is to raise the upper lip so that her lips are fuller.  This patient wanted a very conservative change, so Dr. Rodriguez performed a minimum lift. What this means is that only a tiny amount of skin is removed from the base of the nose. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and takes only 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The result is very subtle, but it really enhances her overall facial appearance.
