"I’m a 71yr. old woman who had never received injections or any type facial surgery until last year. And I thought that maybe it was a little late to start. Sinead was highly recommended by a client of my aesthetician. She is absolutely remarkable! So professional. She explains every detail thoroughly before touching my face. I’ve seen her a few times now and am extremely pleased with the results. My lips are fuller in a most natural way. And the marionette and nasolabial folds are100% better. It’s hard to remember what it looked like before. But I was definitely avoiding looking in the mirror. I’m so appreciative and glad that such a wonderful “refresh” is available. I trust her artistry and scientific knowledge. And she’s gentle as can be. High High Recommendation"- L.D. / Google / Dec 18, 2021

Am I a Good Candidate for a lip lift?
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.
How is a Lip Lift Performed?
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.
What Should I Expect Following a lip lift?
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.
