This procedure is quite simple; lip lift reduces the distance between the nose and the top of the lip. The pink tissue is made more prominent after the operation, making the lips appear larger and more prominent. Additionally, when you smile, it increases the amount of your upper middle teeth that can be seen while your lips are resting.
Benefits of Lip Lift Surgery
Properly applied lip lift offers a number of benefits to patients. Similar to other areas of your face, the upper lip tends to enlarge and lengthen with age. As a result, there is often a "rolling" in the red part of the lip. Also, the upper lip slides down and hide the upper teeth, which can make the mouth appear older and drooping.
These changes can be reversed by reducing the upper lip. As a result, the mid face looks lifted and rejuvenated. As a result of the increased lip volume, there is also a permanent appearance of fullness in the lips.
Lip Lift Procedure
This treatment takes about 30 minutes and can be done under local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia can also be used for those who are nervous. In order for this surgery to be performed, the excess of the upper lip skin behind the nose must be removed. Lip lift surgeries have been made in a variety of ways over the years.
A small amount of skin is removed from the area where your pink lip meets your skin, according to the original recipe. Using more advanced procedures, the incision is made slightly below your nose, resulting in a less noticeable scar. Small strips of skin are removed and stitches are used to gently and effectively close the wound. Our clinic use the most innovative techniques to achieve a longer lasting, more natural effect.
Although lip lift falls into the category of lip enlargement, it is not an operation performed with injectable or permanent fillers, but a surgical technique that requires intervention on the skin above the lip. It is also called Bullhorn Lip Lift.
