Always wanted a fuller lip? Has your upper lip continued to get longer over the years? Not getting the result you would like from your fillers anymore? These are all great reasons to get a lip lift. A liplift includes removing a small strip above the nose to give a fuller and more youthful appearance to the mouth. A liplift reduces the need for lip filler and creates a more natural and youthful lip. This procedure can shorten the perceived length of the midface, improve definition of philtral columns and cupid’s bow and improve lipstick bleed line. A liplift can be combined with a variety of procedures to improve facial harmony and consideration should be given to doing rhinoplasty.
During your consultation, Dr. Berens will analyze your upper lip and determine if a lip lift would help you achieve your goals.
Liplift can be done comfortably in the office under local anesthesia.
Ice will need to be applied to the lips for the first 24-48 hours. Dressings will come off the day after surgery. You will be seen in the office the week after the procedure and follow up visits will continue at week 1,3,6 and 12. You should take 2-3 days off of work, depending how much talking you do at work.
Final cost will depend on consultation. Cost starts at $3,500.
