What is a Lip Lift?

Lip lift involves raising the upper lip towards the nose. This is done when aging causes the philtrum to elongate, allowing the vermillion of the upper lip to retract over the teeth. This gives the appearance of thin upper lips that many people find unattractive. Using various incision styles the upper lip can be lifted in various locations to decrease the distance from the red of your lip to the bottom of the nose.

Lip reshaping is a surgical technique used to lift the lips and bring them into better proportion. Over time, aging of the mouth area results in elongation of the lip, change in skin texture, drooping of the corners, and loss of volume. Although fillers may address the volume issue, the shape of the lip is changed.

Lip reshaping utilizes various finesse techniques to restore the youthful anatomy of the lips. Skin texture or fine wrinkling is addressed with laser resurfacing or dermabrasion. The corners of the mouth are lifted with a small procedure. Or, the entire upper lip may need to be lifted from the base of the nose. There are other procedures in addition to the ones above that can give you an augmented lip that is more youthful and in better proportion.

Precisely which set of procedures for lip reshaping will benefit you most is determined during a thorough consultation with Dr. Panossian. He will take into consideration various factors and analyze your lip and mouth area to achieve the best possible long-lasting result.

Lip reduction refers to removing volume from the lips. It is usually done in the setting of previous aggressive plastic surgery and with the injection of certain permanent fillers, such as silicone. This is usually done through a side-to-side incision in the mucous lining of the upper and/or lower lips under a local anesthetic. It is usually done in the office setting and you can go home the same day. Depending upon the amount of excess tissue, the procedure can take 1-2 hours to perform. Dr. Panossian will remain available to answer any questions or concerns you may have during your recovery period.
