Upper Lip Lift Surgery

Includes a Live Web Event on 07/10/2024 at 6:00 PM (CDT)


Upper Lip Lift Surgery

Achieving consistent and desired upper lip lift results requires precision and expertise. This 60-minute webinar will give an in-depth overview of the upper lip lift procedure. Many patients considering a lip lift exhibit a long upper lip with diminished tooth exposure as a natural result of the aging process. During surgery, a small amount of skin is removed to shorten the upper, increasing the amount of pink vermillion and tooth exposed. The incision is well-hidden in the base of the nose, and the procedure can be performed in the OMS office with intravenous sedation or local anesthesia. This webinar will discuss patient qualifications for upper lip lift surgery as well as advice for attaining consistent outcomes.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Determine the proper selection of patients for an upper lip lift.  
  2. Perform the procedure in a sequential fashion.  
  3. Achieve consistent upper lip lift results.
