About Lip Lift surgery

Plastic Surgery Vegas offers an extensive list of aesthetic procedures for the face, including lip lifts.  This minimally invasive procedure reshapes and provides a distinct definition to the curves and peaks of the lips to create a more voluminous appearance. If you have thin or deflated-looking lips, a surgical lip lift may be the solution for you. In addition, we offer several different types of dermal fillers that can enhance the look of your lips if you are not ready for a surgical procedure. Fillers can also be combined with your surgical lip lift to elevate your results. During your appointment at Plastic Surgery Vegas, our skilled team of specialists will evaluate your cosmetic concerns and determine if a lip lift procedure will help you meet your aesthetic goals.

Is a lip lift for me?

This plastic surgery includes the weakening of the upper lip, causing it to lower to help hide the gums in patients who feel that they have an excessively gummy smile. This surgery is minimally invasive, uncomplicated in nature, and typically provides positive outcomes. It can also be completed with dermal fillers or performed as a standalone procedure. During your scheduled consultation, please explain your individual needs and specific concerns so that the correct lip procedure is selected. 

Surgical Technique

Currently, there are various procedures that can be considered during a lip lift procedure, and the most common are:

  • Gull-wing lip lift: This procedure is typically used to improve the appeal of the vermilion, also known as the lip line, which constructs the top of the Cupid’s bow. For this procedure, the skin is carefully removed and the lips are reshaped and lifted to strengthen the depth of the vermilion.
  • Sub-nasal lip lift: During this surgery, a tiny section of skin from under the nose will be detached and then lifted and stitched into place under it. This sub-nasal lip lift technique helps the lips to appear larger and fuller, increasing the volume of vermilion and emphasizing the Cupid’s bow.

Lip lift surgery is meticulous in nature but commonly provides lovely, quick outcomes. Depending upon the technique agreed upon, general or local anesthesia may be required. Lip surgery may take only a few minutes or may take up to two hours, depending on your facial contour and unique needs. Along with slight pain, you should expect swelling and bruising the first two weeks following a lip lift surgery as the lips and face are delicate areas. It may take a couple of months for the final results of a lip surgery to be completely revealed. When the bruising and swelling have gone down, you should see noticeable improvements and dramatic results.

Will there be scarring?
Our seasoned team of cosmetic surgeons are highly trained and experienced in performing lip lift surgery. For this reason, we will strategically place stitches and make incisions within the natural curves of the lips to make any scarring as inconspicuous as possible. 

How much skin will need to be removed?
The amount of tissue that needs to be removed is dependent on your specific lip contour and personal goals. Generally, we remove about 5mm – 7mm of tissue, but this will vary from patient to patient. During your initial consultation, we can discuss this further.

Can I combine another procedure?
Yes. Many of our patients opt to combine another procedure with their lip surgery. Most commonly, dermal fillers are included, but other nonsurgical and surgical options can be performed as well. We offer a long list of facial surgeries, including cheek augmentation, nose surgery, and facelifts.
