This 42-year old male had 1.5 cm (15 mm) pre-op distance from the vermillion border (top lip) to the base of his nose. Dr. Rodriguez placed the surgical marking to remove only 2 mm-4 mm of skin (at the base of the nose) to achieve the best shape for the lips. With even just this small amount of skin removed, the distance between his nose and upper lip was noticeably shortened to bring balance to his lower face.
