The ideal lip formation is one where the upper lip is slightly narrower than the lower, and there is a clearly marked area between the outer contours of the lips and the surrounding skin. If the distance between the upper lip and the nose is just big enough to cover the front teeth than the ideal aesthetic look is achieved.
There are of course other age-related or congenital deviations from this ideal, that a lip correction will help overcome. The ideal candidates for Lip Surgery are men or women of any age who are physically and mentally able to understand the realistic successes of such a correction.
Patients who will benefit from such a correction could be those who have inherited thin lips, older women who have lost the fullness of their lips, and particularly good results can be achieved for those who have wrinkles outside their lips.
