A lip lift is a surgical procedure that modifies the appearance of your lips. It involves lifting your top lip to make the pink border (vermilion border) more noticeable. This technique gives your lips and lower face a rejuvenated appearance. Ideal candidates for a lip lift During your consultation, we will assess your body type, health history, and reasons for having the procedure. In general, you are an ideal candidate if: You are bothered by the appearance of your lips. You don’t have a bleeding disorder. You don’t smoke. You have narrow and deflated lips. You have realistic expectations. You have thinner lips. Our lip lift image gallery will help you to determine which lip conditions will benefit from the procedure. Main benefits Undergoing this procedure can give you the following benefits: Improved quality of life Increased self-esteem Increased tooth show Younger-looking lips How a lip lift is performed During the procedure, your surgeon will inject a local anaesthetic into your lips to prevent any discomfort. Your surgeon will then remove the skin between your upper lip and nose. This technique reduces the distance between your nose and lips. The upper lip will then be lifted to make it larger and more noticeable. Your surgeon will then close the incision sites using sutures. Recovery You may feel pain and soreness in your lips immediately after the procedure. This can be managed by taking pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. Before discharge, your surgeon will provide postoperative instructions such as proper wound care, activity restrictions, and when to return for follow-up. To achieve optimal results while recovering at home, you will need to clean your incision sites and keep your lips moisturized. You will also need to avoid the following to prevent complications: Hard-bristled toothbrush Sleeping on your face Smoking Sour and spicy foods Strenuous activities When to return for follow-up Follow-up appointments will be determined by you and your surgeon. In general, you need to follow up with your surgeon after a week for the removal of your sutures. However, you may need to consult immediately with your surgeon if you develop fever, severe lip pain, pus on the incision site, and bleeding.
