Lip Lift Surgery Sydney

About the treatment

Lip lifts have become one of the more popular surgical procedures to be performed in the last few years. 

As we age, our lip becomes longer, flatter and the vermillion or red part of the lip, which covers most of the top teeth, becomes thinner. As a result, as your face expresses various emotions, minimal teeth are displayed, which ages the appearance of your face.


Lip lifts aim to shorten the ageing vertical length of the lip for a more youthful, sensual appearance. Lip lifts increase the display of teeth at rest and with expression. Essentially, the lip lift improves the shape of the overall lip.

What to expect from a Lip Lift

Modern lip lift surgery is all about creating better balance to the lip and to the face by strategically removing a carefully measured amount of skin just under the nose. 

Dr Liew’s technique involves a deep plane lip lift where the meticulously designed procedure follows the closure of the wound in a deep plane to reduce any lip tension. The result is a more sensual lip with minimal visible scarring.

In most patients, the procedure can be performed at the clinic in Darlinghurst with local anaesthetic and some light sedation.

The procedure takes about an hour, and the stitches are removed in 7 days. Social downtime would be 7-10 days.
