Volume loss within the skin is a very common and natural occurrence of aging. This is true for the delicate skin of the face, neck, chest and hands. The lips are also often victims of volume loss over time. As you grow older your upper lip tends to elongate and thin out. This can cause you to look angry, tired or simply less vibrant than you used to look or currently feel.
A lip lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that shortens the distance between the upper lip margin and base of the nose, allowing for more visibility of the upper teeth when the lips are in a relaxed, slightly separated position. This procedure will make the middle section of your upper lip more full and restore balance to your smile. It will also help make you look years younger.
A lip lift is a little known surgery that offers big results – without the need for fillers or implants. It is performed in our office in less than one hour and done so under local anesthesia. This means you will return home the same day and less down time will be needed for recovery.
A lip lift involves a tiny incision placed within the natural crease just beneath the base of the nose to precisely elevate and reposition the upper lip. Recovery time is rapid and the concealed incision generally heals very well. Contact us to learn more today!
