What is a Lip Lift?

If you feel like your face looks bland or you'd like to plump up your lips, a lip lift may be just what you need. Dr. Matthew Karen, a double board-certified Winchester, VA plastic surgeon, performs lip lifts to transform and provide distinct definition to the peaks and curves of the lips to reveal a voluminous, beautiful mouth. During your appointment at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa, Dr. Karen will learn more about you, evaluate your cosmetic goals, and help you decide whether a lip lift surgery will help you meet your aesthetic goals.

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.
