"I went to see Dr. Karen two weeks ago for Botox and filler. I absolutely LOVE my results. My lips are plump and symmetrical. My forehead, under eyes and mouth look entirely rejuvenated. Also I’ve noticed a HUGE difference using ZO skin care. It’s only been two weeks but my acne has cleared up immensely my skin looks brighter and healthier. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Karen and speaking with Sabrina about ZO skin care. Sabrina is amazing!!! She is passionate about making you look and feel the best you can be. She was so easy to talk to and I felt very confident the money I spent on the skin care products would work. Worth every penny!!! I will be going back in the near future, and restocking on all of my ZO products 10/10👌🏼"- L.W. / Google / Jul 02, 2021
What Can I Expect from a Lip Lift?
Your treatment plan will vary, depending on the procedure you're receiving. When getting a lip lift, there are a few different approaches that are typically utilized, including:
- Gull-wing lip lift: This technique is typically used to improve the appeal of the vermilion, the lip line which shapes the crests of the Cupid’s bow. During this procedure, skin tissue is meticulously detached and the lips are artfully lifted and shaped to boost the depth of the lip line.
- Sub-nasal lip lift: During this procedure, a small part of skin from beneath the nose will be taken and then raised and sewn into the correct place below it, lifting the lip. This lifting technique helps the lips look larger and fuller, emphasizing the Cupid's bow and increasing the volume of the vermilion.
Lip lift procedures are delicate in nature but routinely yield lovely, immediate results. Depending on your particular treatment plan, a local or general anesthesia will be used and the process could take anywhere from a few minutes to two hours. Along with some discomfort, you can expect bruising and swelling in the first two weeks following your lip lift. It can take a couple of months for the full outcome of a lip procedure to be completely unveiled; however, once the swelling and bruising have diminished, you should see obvious enhancement and beautiful results.
