Lip Lift Surgery

Plump, smooth lips are a highly coveted facial feature because they enhance a person’s smile and revitalize their entire face. Many individuals are born with thin lips, and others who have had luscious lips experience a natural loss of lip volume and other unwanted aesthetic changes to their lips as they age. These changes can include the elongation of the upper lip, reducing the visibility of the teeth, and the appearance of a perpetually angry expression due to drooping or sagging of the upper lip. While there are temporary solutions to boost lip volume, such as dermal fillers, lip lift surgery may be the best option for patients seeking a more long-term solution.

Lip lift surgery, also known as lip enhancement or lip augmentation, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the lips by increasing their fullness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The surgery involves making a small incision in the upper lip and removing a strip of skin to lift and shorten the upper lip. This can improve the proportions of the lips and create a more youthful, balanced, and refreshed appearance.

The benefits of lip lift surgery include increased lip fullness, a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance, improved self-confidence, and a more youthful and refreshed overall look. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and takes about an hour to complete. Recovery time varies depending on the individual, but most patients can return to normal activities within a few days.

If you’re considering lip lift surgery, it’s essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing this procedure. They can provide you with more information about the surgery and help you determine if it’s right for you. Contact us to find out what we can do for your lips.
