Over time, the skin between the nose and upper lip loses elasticity and lengthens, resulting in thin, flat lips. A lip lift helps minimise the gap between the nose and the upper lip, which makes the face look softer and more feminine.

What exactly is Lip Lift?

Over time, the skin between the nose and upper lip loses elasticity and lengthens, resulting in thin, flat lips.

A lip lift helps minimise the gap between the nose and the upper lip, which makes the face look softer and more feminine. It also exposes more of the teeth, creating a more youthful-looking mouth. The procedure can even be combined with dermal fillers or a dermal fat graft to create a volumising effect.

Lip lifts are ideal for anyone who wants to reverse the effects of ageing or smoking on their upper lip but a consultation will be necessary to determine whether you are an ideal candidate.

What to Expect During a Lip Lift

Lip lifts are minimally-invasive and only require a local anaesthetic. A lip lift is minimally invasive, which makes it one of the safer facial rejuvenation procedures around today.

One of 2 techniques can be used during a Lip Lift. One option is for the incision to be made just under the nose! The other option is for the incision to be made along the corners of the lips to roll them out and give a happier appearance.

The average procedure takes about an hour and your sutures will be removed after 7 – 10 days, allowing your incisions to heal naturally.

Lip Lifts: What patients need to know.

  • Your smile will still look natural. Many patients are concerned that their smile will look unnatural after a lip lift but this isn’t the case
  • Scarring is minimal. Since the procedure only requires a small incision and it’s placed in a discrete area, scarring is minimal to non-existent after a lip lift
  • Swelling can be expected. Lip lift patients will experience some mild swelling for up to 3 days after the procedure but a cold compress can be applied to reduce it
  • Results will be visible in six weeks. Patients should wait up to 6 weeks to see the final results of their lip lift
  • Aftercare is important. Your mouth will be sensitive following your lip lift, which means you will need to be cautious about what you eat and avoid smoking. It’s important not to stretch your mouth during your recovery. Your surgeon will also provide you with additional aftercare instructions that will ensure you achieve the best results.
