Lip Lift Surgery Sydney

About the treatment

Over time, our lip becomes longer, flatter and the vermillion or red part of the lip, which covers most of the top teeth, becomes thinner. A lip lift surgery aims to shorten the vertical length of the lip.


Lip lift surgery aims to shorten the vertical length of the lip. Lip lifts increase the display of teeth at rest and with expression. Essentially, a lip lift can also improve the shape of the lip.

What to expect from a Lip Lift

Lip lift surgery strategically removes a carefully measured amount of skin just under the nose. Specialist Plastic Surgeon, Dr Liew’s technique involves a deep plane lip lift where the procedure follows the closure of the wound in a deep plane to reduce any lip tension, and reduce scarring.
