Dr. Yaker performs this procedure for patients who have a long distance between the nose and upper lip. The scar is at the base of the nose extending up the side of the nostrils. Once healed the scar is undetectable. Often patients come in with over filled lips from filler injections and they feel the upper lip looks funny. The reality is the patient has an upper lip, however with age the lip turns inward and under into the mouth. When Dr. Yaker performs the upper lip lift, the lip is brought upward and the fuller lip and shortened distance to the nose creates a better symmetry of the face.
