UPPER LIP LIFT
As a person ages, the length of the upper lip skin increases and the red portion thins out. An Upper Lip Lift can make it look fuller and more youthful.
Who is a good candidate for Upper Lip Lift?
Patients with thinning of the red portion of the upper lip and elongation and wrinkles of the skin may be a good candidate for an upper lip lift.
What should a patient expect during and after Upper Lip Lift?
This can be performed with a face/neck lift under general anesthesia or in the office under local anesthesia. It generally takes about 20 minutes to perform and has 1-2 weeks of down time if performed alone.
What results can a patient expect from Upper Lip Lift?
One of the main signs of facial aging are elongation and wrinkle formation of the upper lip. For the right patient, this can significantly improve the appearance of the mouth. This can also make the red portion of the upper lip look fuller and more defined; similar to the result following a small/moderate amount of lip filler.
