Many people ignore the role of the philtrum (upper lip), it is a place that affects overall facial harmony. In the older patients, having a long philtrum can give people the impression of a long face, older appearance, not sophisticated, or even being harsh and aggressive. Benefits of shortening the philtrum include a younger appearance, increased lip thickness, fullness, and a nasal lip angle correction to increase facial attractiveness. With a surgical shortening there is a risk of permanent scarring.
The advantages of TipLyft™, in addition to being reflected in the nose, can also shorten the philtrum with non-surgical injection, further creating a sense of refinement for the whole face.
TipLyft™ not only lengthens and lifts the tip of the nose but is also a done in a completely safe way. Everyone’s anatomy is different not all blood vessels and veins are exactly as a depicted in a textbook. Most plastic surgeons have experienced problems with the nose tip during an injection process, because the nose and tip are very vascular, which is a big minefield, and accidentally injecting into the blood vessels can cause a disaster, such as compression of the nasal vessels causing artificial ischemia, disfigurement of the nose skin, and hyaluronic acid into broken blood vessels causing embolism. How to avoid these complications and ensure the safety of treatment depends entirely on the experience and technique of the physician. Dr. Arthur Yu can perform this treatment due to his years of surgical experience in the plastic surgery industry.
With 20 years of surgical experience and a professional plastic surgery background, Dr. Yu has successfully created TipLyft™ a non-surgical nose that transcends surgery. This technique perfectly avoids these risks, and all injections are performed by Dr. Yu himself, creating the most natural and beautiful structure with the assurance of safety.
Tiplyft™ is an exclusive injection technology developed with Dr. Yu’s 20 years of experience in rhinoplasty. This is his own unique technique which utilizes a previously unappreciated space in the tip of the nose and injects hyaluronic acid filler to achieve optimal contouring. The injection technique is done according to each individual client’s condition and can promote nose lengthening, tip enhancement, and these are just a few of the benefits. Patients can achieve a surgical result with non-surgical injection and the effect is amazingly beautiful, natural, soft, and delicate.
This is a new technique and there is nothing like it in the current industry. With this new discovery and technique, we have applied for a patent (USPTO) pending. This is highly popular and well received all over the US and will eventually become one of the leading non-surgical procedures internationally.
