Previously, Philtrum Shortening could only be corrected with surgery. But nowadays, you can get a TipLyft™ in Arcadia, CA to achieve an aesthetically pleasing nose without any downtime. Dr. Yu of Premier Cosmetic Surgery has developed an innovative nose injection technique that can be used for the non-surgical upper lip shortening.
Philtrum Shortening with the TipLyft™ Many people ignore the role of the philtrum (upper lip), it is a place that affects overall facial harmony. In 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 surgical philtrum 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.
After a TipLyft™ treatment, the immediate result shows that the nose becomes normal in size and shape. The upper lip appears significantly shorter, and the nasolabial angle, along with the columella veiling, is improved. The philtrum columns have a better relationship with the columella. As a result, the upper lip is also better positioned. Overall, the facial profile, balance, and proportion are improved significantly.
