Smooth Over Fine Lines and Wrinkles

If you’re considering a lip lift, it’s important to understand that the texture of your skin will not be modified by the lip lift procedure. If you have extensive wrinkling around the lips due to heredity, smoking or sun exposure, this can be treated with laser skin resurfacing before or in conjunction with a lip lift procedure to improve the texture of the skin and to minimize the recurrence of wrinkles in the lip area. This will be discussed in your consultation. Rest assured, we know how to create the most attractive result for your particular needs.

Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Lift Surgery?

As we age, it's fairly common to notice that fine lines and wrinkles start to develop around the lips and mouth. Some patients also notice that sagging or drooping has started to set in, thanks to the loss of facial volume. These are all easily corrected with a lip lift, which can restore your face's youthful glow, smoothing over fine lines and wrinkles and effectively eliminating some of the earlier signs of facial aging.

A lip lift is needed when injectable fillers no longer give the results that you seek or, in discussion with your surgeon, you mutually decide that a long-lasting solution is best for you. Because a lip lift can be done to address poorly shaped lips at any age, this procedure can be done on any healthy adult. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you explore your options for rejuvenating your facial area.

The lip lift is great for addressing:

  • Thin upper lip
  • Long upper lip

How Lip Lift Surgery Is Performed

Lip lift procedures are performed under local anesthesia  in our Boca Raton accredited in-office surgery suite on an outpatient basis. If performed during another facial cosmetic procedure, it may be done under general anesthesia. During the procedure, an incision is placed just beneath the nose and a small strip of skin and tissue is removed. The lip is then elevated to a new position Should it be needed, dermal filler or fat can be injected into the lips to give an overall fuller appearance. The procedure takes about an hour.

What to Expect During Lip Lift Recovery

For a lip lift procedure, recovery time is two to four days, but it could be slightly longer, if additional procedures were performed alongside your lip lift. You will experience some swelling and bruising, which is completely normal, and can be relieved with pain medication and ice packs. You should see this swelling fade away over the course of just a few days, at which point you'll be able to enjoy a refreshed and rejuvenated facial appearance!

Customizing Your Procedure

Your lip lift is a great way to walk back some of the early signs of aging and smooth over facial issues like fine lines and wrinkles, and during your consultation, we'll help you explore other options that might increase your sense of facial symmetry and harmony. Other facial procedures, like a chin augmentation or even something non-surgical like laser skin resurfacing, can often help to truly bring out your results, enabling you to put your very best face foward, every single day.
