As we age the lips begin to lose plumpness and begin to droop. By shortening the height of the upper lip with a Lip Lift, a more attractive and youthful appearance can be achieved.
A Lip Lift is a subtle yet transformative procedure that removes tissue just below the nose, which essentially lifts the upper lip, and in turn creates an enhanced feminine upper lip shape. Modification of the lips in this way adds volume and plumpness to a thin lip while enhancing an overall youthful appearance.
With the Lip Lift procedure, immediate improvement of the upper lip is seen. You may go back to your normal activities after 7 – 10 days. Some swelling is expected in the first 3 to 5 days before the final results are evident at 2 to 3 weeks. Avoid bending over and sleep with extra pillows for the first 5 days. The upper lip may be uncomfortable and mildly swollen for the first week. Scaring is minimal and often goes unnoticed because the point of incision is right under the nose where the eye naturally sees a crease.
