City Facial Plastics, located in Manhattan, NY, provides a lip lift revision that restores balance and provides the appealing, youthful look you desire. What Is Lip Lift Revision?

While there are many different, specific reasons people may desire lip repair, in general the goal is to improve the cosmetic appearance of the lip and surrounding area such that a person is more satisfied and feels more confident about his or her results.
