The upper lip may be very long due to heredity or aging.
To shorten it, a horizontal incision is placed at the base of the nose.
Thanks to a modified technique used by Dr. Fanous, most of the incision is hidden inside
the two nostrils.
The chances for complications are possible but not probable, as in any surgery:
hypertrophic scars, asymmetry, hematoma, side effects of anesthesia, etc.
