Lip surgery is one of Dr Barnouti’s specialties. In fact, he is one of the premier pioneers of lip shaping procedures in Australia, having performed this surgery on patients around the world. The upper lip lift is a procedure that elevates the position of the upper lip with respect to the teeth giving a broader smile. The amount of wet red lip margin that is seen is also increased giving the patient wider lips. The lips can also be made fuller with lip augmentation by injecting fillers or fat into the lips at the same surgical session. The overall effect of the lip lift is a more esthetically pleasing mouth with a youthful appearance. The patient satisfaction rate is very high.
Before any surgical step about your lip lift procedure, Dr Barnouti will enquire about your medical history.

The Effect usually last 6 months, at which time another injection is essential. After numerous treatments, the effects may begin to last longer, occasionally up to 9 months. We recommend treatment every three months for the first year, and then repeat treatment as needed. This treatment is provided on the same consultation day. Lip treatment with soft tissue fillers usually leaves no bruises as it is done from inside the lip.
