A lip lift is an in-office surgical procedure that shortens the space between the nose and the top of the lip, according to healthline. 

It is favoured by people looking to increase the height of the lips, but not the volume which is usually done through fillers. 

The brunette also responded to questions about how she was feeling post-surgery.
