As the face ages, the upper lift will drop and the distance between the upper lip and nose gets longer. The Lip Lift shortens the space between the top of the upper lip and the bottom of the nose. It has the effect of enhancing the lips such that they appear more youthful, fuller, and beautiful.

On this patient, the pre-op length from the top of the vermillion border of the lips to the base of the nose was 1.8 cm (18 mm). Dr. Rodriguez excised the skin to make the final distance 1.2 cm (12 mm) . This means that he removed a total of 6 mm of skin from the base of the nose. 

For more in-depth information, see Dr. Rodriguez' s blog post, Lip Lift - A Technical Description of the Procedure.
