Lip Lift

Lip lift

Get the pout without the ouch.

Do you regularly get lip injections? Do you have a long upper lip? Then you are likely a perfect candidate for a lip lift. This procedure can be done under local anesthesia in the office by removing excess skin of the upper lip to flip your red lip up and out permanently, providing fullness and a rosy hue that enhances your lips’ natural beauty and balance.

The incision is hidden in the shadows of the base of the nose and heals very well. Sutures are typically removed at one-week postop and downtime is minimal. This can be a great solution for patients with a thin upper lip looking for a more permanent solution!
