The lip lift procedure is a simple means of shortening the upper lip to provide more pout and enhance aesthetics. The procedure also allows the patient to show more teeth when talking and smiling. Although many patients heal fine without the laser, those patients who desire a more aesthetic scar can be treated with the one minute procedure. The skin heals in about 10-12 days and the scar becomes much more blended.
