Improve appearance with an upper lip lift instead of injectables

Patients looking to improve the appearance of the upper lip may be told by a professional that cosmetic injectables may be a great way to add volume to the area and achieve the desired results. However, fillers only last a few months, and patients who know they want a more permanent result will want to talk to a Board-Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon such as Dr. Edmund Kwan of New York, New York, to find out more about facial procedures such as the upper lip lift. The upper lip lift is a cosmetic plastic surgery that offers a great way to achieve a youthful look and avoid continued injections.

What is an upper lip lift?

The upper lip lift procedure lifts the upper lip area, resulting in a more voluptuous lip appearance.

What happens during the upper lip lift?

The upper lip lift surgery is performed at the base of the nose. The incision is hidden at the alar crease and curves up inside of the nostrils. A small amount of skin is removed, and the muscle surrounding the lip is tightened. Stitches are used to close the skin incision.

What can the upper lip lift surgery achieve?

The final aesthetic result will yield a much more youthful perioral appearance. The length from the base of the nose to the upper lip is reduced. Some of the perioral wrinkles may also improve. The upper lip will appear fuller and more vibrant without the unnatural over-filled look of a filler.

Who is a good candidate for the upper lip lift?

Many patients aged 30 and older are good candidates for this procedure, especially those with thinning upper lip. There is a relatively short downtime, and patients can resume normal activities quickly following the upper lip lift treatment.
