There should be no risk of an allergic reaction or the body rejecting it. Lip implants, made of a soft, pliable silicone rubber or a biodegradable substance, need tiny incisions in the corners of the mouth for the insertion of the implant. An upper lip lift treats the longevity of the upper lip between the base of the columella and the pinkness of the upper lip. An upper lip lift involves making an incision at the base of the nose and removing excess skin to lift, and shorten, the upper lip.
