There are essentially two types of lip lifts. One involves making incisions along the upper border of the lip (the vermillion border) and has a direct effect on the lip shape. The other procedure involves a thin incision just inside the nostril creases which hides the incision exceptionally well. Dr. Dahiya prefers the latter approach because his goal is always to get the best results that look the most natural without any visible signs of surgery. He will in some cases use fillers in addition to the lip lift to achieve the ideal full and youthful result.
