Not just for the older generation, lip lifts are popular with all age groups looking to enhance their natural beauty. Lip lifts are mainly done on the upper lip; however, corner lip lifts are becoming increasingly popular with older clients who feel the corners of the mouth have turned down, sometimes known as “sad mouth”.
