Accentuate your lips & improve your smile
Upper Lip Lift
Do you feel that over time your smile is becoming less pronounced than you would like? Do you feel like you are showing less of your teeth or that your lip is drooping as you age? Regaining your full smile may be as simple as getting rid of extra weight on the upper lip.
Do I need an Upper Lip Lift?
As we age, collagen levels drop and skin elasticity decreases causing facial proportions change. These changes often result in a heavy or long upper lip. In turn, the added weight and tissue of the upper lip will thin the red portion of the lips, weigh down the corners of the mouth and reduce the size of your smile. Taken together, this produces:
a) a spontaneous smile that does not look as big and natural as it used to; or
b) the look of being tired or grumpy when you don’t feel that way at all.
In either case, an upper lip lift may help.
What does an Upper Lip Lift treat?
An Upper Lip Lift Can:
- Increase fullness of the upper lip
- Improve the shape of the upper lip
- Restore lip symmetry
- Expand your smile
- Lift the corners of your mouth
How is an Upper Lip Lift performed?
An upper lip lift consists of removing excess skin between the base of your nose and the red portion of the upper lip. It is one of the most simple and effective ways to permanently accentuate the upper lip and highlight the features essential for a full, natural smile.
The upper lip lift typically takes 45 minutes to 1 hour. The procedure can be performed as an office based procedure with local anesthetic or, if preferred, in a setting using twilight or general anesthesia. External incisions are well hidden along the base of the nose and within the nostrils. Most people experience minimal swelling making recovery and return to face-to-face interaction relatively swift.
