Lip Lift Beverly Hills

Facial proportions are the key to a natural and well-balanced appearance. Often time when one proportion is off, this draws unwanted attention to that area. An elongated lip, or sometimes a thin upper lip, appears as a disproportionate amount of skin between the pink of your upper lip and the lower part of your nose. This can also be seen when there are minimal teeth showing with smiling. A lip lift is a great option to improve the balance and natural symmetry of one’s face.

During the procedure:

Lip lift is performed as an office procedure using local anesthesia where the patient is awake and comfortable. The incision is made within your natural crease right underneath your nostrils. Fine sutures are used to close the incision and they are removed after seven days.

Recovery:

The downtime for lip lifts is usually between 1-2 weeks, depending on how each patient heals. Some bruising and swelling is normal and expected and patients can usually expect to return to social activities after two weeks.
