Why Choose a Lip Lift?

As we age our lip becomes longer and the red portion of the lip (the vermilion) tends to become less prominent. Oftentimes, less tooth show is visible on a full smile. This results in an aged appearance. For these individuals, a lip lift (also called a bullhorn lip lift) is a better solution than HA fillers. Fillers will tend to lengthen the lip, decrease tooth show, and need to be redone at 6-month intervals. Depending on your examination, sometimes a small amount of fat transfer will be combined to ensure a naturally balanced upper and lower lip.

Lip Lift Procedure

The procedure itself utilizes an incision that wraps around the lower contours of the nose in a bullhorn pattern (as seen in the diagram above). Intervening skin is removed and meticulous suturing is undertaken. Sutures are removed at 1 week. If fat transfer was planned, a small cannula is used to insert your own micro fat into the lips.

What Happens After a Lip Lift?

Social downtime is typically 7-14 days. The incision line can remain red for the first few months, however, it can be covered up with makeup. Final result and incision healing is normally appreciable by 6 months.
