Lip Lift Plastic Surgery
As you get older, your upper lip can droop and cover your top teeth when you smile. It can also make you seem tired and affect your self-esteem and confidence. Lip lift plastic surgery elevates your upper lip to achieve a more youthful smile. Your lips will look more naturally balanced and proportionate with the rest of your facial features.
Lip Enhancement Cosmetic Surgeon
The procedure is performed in about an hour using local anesthesia. A lip enhancement cosmetic surgeon typically makes an incision under the nose and removes a small strip of tissue and skin. During surgery, lips can also be augmented with collagen, fat transfers or dermal fillers. You may experience some swelling and bruising after the surgery. Scarring is minimal and should fade over time.
Results are noticeable immediately and will continue to improve for the next six months. Normal activities may be resumed within a week following the procedure. You may need to follow a soft food diet for the first few days to help minimize discomfort from chewing.
Ideal Lift Lip Candidates
Individuals in good general health who are unhappy with their smile can benefit from lip lift enhancement. It may not be ideal for people who have keloid scars, cold sores, infection or an active skin disorder. A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon will help you understand any potential risks and determine if you are an ideal candidate.
