Question : My understanding is that lip lifts lift the lip, but why would somebody need this? How is this different from lip augmentation?
Answer : Sometimes patients have an actual loss of the height or the position of the lip due to gravity. In this case, the lip is drooping. Augmenting the lip involves injecting filler to the lip and increasing the volume. But in order to actually lift the lip up, a lip lift may be necessary. This will actually lift the lip higher if the lip is drooping.
