A Lifted Lip For Elevated Confidence

While lip fillers have become a common lip augmentation option, they require frequent maintenance, and it may be difficult to achieve a subtle outcome. If your lips are too thin, your upper lip disappears when you smile, or aging has diminished your lip volume, a Lip Lift can add a subtle yet supple look to your lips that is lasting.

What is a Lip Lift?

A Lip Lift is a minor surgical cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the lips by revealing more surface area of the top lip. To achieve this look, a tiny strip of skin is removed from just below the nostril, and the skin is pulled upward, which elevates the border of the upper lip, bringing it closer to the nose. There is very little scarring, and the results provide a subtle, natural-looking, and fuller lip appearance. Occasionally, a Lip Lift may involve the removal of skin at the corners of the mouth for those who feel their lips are turned down and would like a lift in this area.

Lip Lift as Part of a Facelift

As we age, the lips may begin to look smaller and lose some volume. As part of a facelift, the Lip Lift is a simple addition to the procedure for a single recovery and is a great way to address signs of aging in the lips.

Benefits of a Lip Lift

For many people, even subtle improvements of a small imbalance in the face can make a huge difference in confidence and quality of life. A Lip Lift is a permanent solution for those who would like to see fuller-looking lips and a more youthful smile. Our Fairfield County Lip Lift patients enjoy:

  • Elevated upper lip for the appearance of more volume
  • Lifted corners for a naturally youthful look
  • Discreet and nearly undetectable scarring
  • No general anesthesia for most patients

Am I a candidate for a Lip Lift?

Since this is a simple, relatively minor surgery, many people who would like to improve thin or aging lips are good candidates for the procedure. This surgery works better for certain facial proportions than others, so not everyone is an ideal candidate, and it's important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon.

Consultation and Preparation

Your consultation with our Fairfield County plastic surgery team will include an examination of your skin and facial proportions. We will also discuss your aesthetic goals and your health history and determine if there are any complementary procedures that may help you achieve your goals. Then, a personalized treatment plan will be created, and preparation needs will be provided.

The Lip Lift Procedure

In most cases, this surgery can be performed without general anesthesia, and your surgeon will opt for sedation with local anesthesia. Very tiny, delicate incisions will be made, typically just below your nostril, and a small strip of skin will be removed. The remaining skin will then be repositioned and sutured for the most minimal scarring possible. Typically, a lip lift takes less than an hour.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Following a lip lift Fairfield County patients typically only experience mild pain or discomfort, though some may want to avoid social interaction for up to two weeks until the incisions heal more fully. Optimal results should be visible after about 12 weeks and can last for as long as 10 years.

Lip Lift FAQs

For most patients, pain after a Lip Lift is very minimal, and most only experience some minor discomfort for a few days.

Since this is a minor surgery, there are risks, including bleeding, infection, or unusual scarring. When performed by a trained professional, there is a very low chance of serious complications.

Yes, since the skin above the lip is surgically manipulated, the lip lift results are considered permanent.

Sometimes, neuromodulator injectables are used in the area above the upper lip to achieve a similar appearance and flip the lip. Sometimes referred to as a "lip flip," these results are not permanent and only last a few months but may be a good option as a trial prior to committing to surgery.

The cost of a Lip Lift depends on each individual patient's treatment plan and their specific needs.
