About Lip Lift
Shorten Skin in Upper Lip
A lip lift in Southlake, Texas is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin in the upper lip to shorten its vertical length. As we age, the distance of skin from the base of the nose to the upper lip border is often elongated.
The lip lift shortens this distance to create a youthful lip and creates a slight eversion or ‘pout’ of the upper lip. The scar is well concealed in the base of the nose along its natural curvatures. With a lip lift in Southlake, our patients can perfect their pout and have beautiful lips they can be confident in.

“It is so important for a plastic surgeon to be in-sync with their patients- their goals, their aesthetics, their fears and concerns. The bond I develop with my patients over the course of their pre- and post-surgical care and the trust they place in me to envision what they desire and understand what they need is something I cherish tremendously. It’s the best part of my job”
Everyone is professional and caring, appointments were on time, information about the procedures and what to expect were explained thoroughly, and any questions or concerns I had post op were addressed immediately.
Dr. Mason took all the time necessary to discuss my concerns, address questions and provide options/suggestions. Extremely personable and attentive.
Dr Mason and his entire staff are the Best of the Best. Their patients come first, from the beginning to the end and every detail is utmost in their mind. I highly recommend Southlake Plastic Surgery
