The Lip Repositioning Procedure:
Simply put, lip repositioning is the lowering of the upper lip. Lip repositioning is a brief surgical procedure that restricts the top lip and positions the lip to reduce the amount of exposed gum tissue.
During this procedure, a small strip of tissue is removed from the inside of the upper lip and the exposed area is sutured into a new, lower position. The procedure generally takes about 30-45 minutes but the results are immediate – a beautiful, confident smile.
