The Lip Lift is a cosmetic procedure performed in-office using only local anesthesia, where the incision is made across the natural crease underneath the nostrils. The Lip Lift can help correct the disproportionate appearance of an elongated lip or thin upper lip and smiles where minimal teeth are showing. The Lip Lift can improve the overall facial harmony and balance. Fine sutures are used to close the incision, which are removed seven days after the procedure. Any swelling and bruising is very minimal, and no bandages are needed. Recovery varies from patient to patient, but most are able to return to their usual activities in the next day.
