A lip lift shortens an abnormally long upper lip to enhance the smile and dental aesthetics. When a person is resting, others should view a couple of millimeters of the incisor teeth. When they smile, others should see a couple millimeters of the gum tissue. Upper lip lift makes an incision under the nose and a small strip of skin and tissue is removed. The lip is lifted while exposing a larger portion of the pink part of the lip and the teeth. A corner lip lift is performed on the edges of the mouth for those who have a permanent frown because the corner of the mouth is turned down. The procedure removes a little triangle of tissue from the corner of the lips and turns it upwards.
