What Is a Lip Lift?
A lip lift is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the amount of pink lip visible to others. With lip lift surgery, an individual can enhance lip fullness and give the lips a youthful appearance.
Both lip lifts and lip fillers are available to enhance lip fullness, but it is important to note the differences between the two treatments. A lip lift delivers permanent results; comparatively, lip fillers provide results that last for only a limited amount of time.
A lip lift procedure involves the removal of tissue from beneath the nose. It usually takes less than one hour to complete, and ultimately, help improve lip volume.
Following a lip lift, a patient has stitches that often remain in place for about one week after surgery. In rare instances, lip lift patients experience bleeding and infection following treatment.
Am I Candidate for a Lip Lift?
The ideal candidate for lip lift surgery varies, and individuals of all ages may qualify for treatment. Dr. Azizzadeh performs a patient assessment to determine if an individual is a good candidate for a lip lift. In doing so, Dr. Azizzadeh helps a patient discover the best way to accomplish his or her facial rejuvenation goals.
During a patient assessment, Dr. Azizzadeh evaluates a lip lift candidate’s medical history and finds out why this individual is considering lip lift surgery. Dr. Azizzadeh also evaluates his patient’s lips, as well as the patient’s eyes, cheeks, chin and other facial features.
If Dr. Azizzadeh believes a patient can benefit from a lip lift, he then crafts a custom treatment program for him or her. Or, if a patient does not qualify for a lip lift, Dr. Azizzadeh offers lip lift procedure alternatives.
