Philtrum locates in the center of the face, and the overall impression of the face varies depending on the position and length of the Philtrum. If the philtrum is short, the face looks small, but if the philtrum is too long, the face may seem long and broad. It may look like presbyopia or a monkey image. Philtrum reduction surgery serves to correct the overall balance of the face.

After the incision along the lower boundary of the nose, pull up the upper lip or cut off a portion of the skin to adjust the long philtrum accordingly. And complete a natural philtrum by making it the right length.

This surgery is suitable when the philtrum is too long, someone who had facial bone surgery, when the face gets longer after the orthodontic treatment, when the philtrum length long so looks older and who wants to make the change of impression.
