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.
Lip Lift Reviews
"My journey with Dr. Andrew Silver began nearly a year ago after my neighbor had recommended I see him for a consultation regarding a procedure (PDO threads) that I had booked elsewhere. She had just gotten a facelift and neck lift and looked absolutely incredible only 10 days post-op. I noticed how quickly she was healing as well as her beautiful, natural results. She then showed me a photo of Dr. Silver and I called to make an appointment immediately. I was able to get in within a week or two which was nice, given his reputation as one of the top plastic surgeons in Las Vegas. I had a few other procedures I had recently taken interest in so I was looking forward to covering all of them in the consultation. When I arrived at his office I appreciated the aesthetic of the facility itself. It’s warm and chic, similar to one of the five star resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. His entire staff, from the front desk, to nurses, assistants, and office managers are all extremely friendly, and welcoming. When I finally met Dr Silver, I was a little disappointed because he was wearing a mask, but he introduced himself and asked what my concerns were. I quickly realized how thorough he was, patient, and a perfectionist of his craft! All of the things you look for in a plastic surgeon. He detoured me from the PDO threads and explained in detail why. He answered all my questions, and gave his opinion; which is refreshing because he’s conservative and I feel his approach “less is more”- helps give elevating results rather than changing anyone’s unique natural beauty. I had botched lip filler from another office he helped dissolve. He was able to meticulously dissolve the migrated filler without dissolving all of it, so he didn’t even have to add anymore! Last year the tiny bags under my eyes had started to bother me and I was feeling self conscious. Dr. Silver suggested a lower blepharoplasty with fat transposition for the results I was seeking. I could not be MORE IN LOVE with the results :) His surgery team was so caring and funny, or maybe it was me on the anesthesia, but either way it was a great experience. Preop was the following morning and my entire healing process from that procedure was seamless which I partially attribute to Stacie and her amazing pre-op, post-op instructions that she gives in person ; via email, and has written handouts. I’m also grateful for the healing pre/ post op vitamins they give you! Fast forward to today, I’m laying here on my sofa one day out from my second surgery (3rd procedure) with Dr Silver! This time I was correcting some excess fat sub-mental (double chin). I wanted to do it under general anesthesia as I was too chicken to do it awake, so I decided to try something I liked the look of that’s popular throughout the entertainment industry right now, an endoscopic brow lift. What I call a “pony tail” brow lift. I’m slightly swollen on day two, but I’m already ecstatic with the results I’m seeing!!! Same experience with surgery yesterday. Everyone was on their A game at 6am. I felt completely comfortable thanks to the whole team. I will update this review with before / after pics of myself as soon as I’m healed. I hope this reaches everyone exactly as it is meant to. I’ll just end by saying I’m never letting another surgeon touch my face, EVER!"- A.P. / Google / Oct 01, 2021

"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

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.
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.
after 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.
