Rejuvenate Your Smile With A Lip Lift

As we age, the skin between the nose and upper lip lengthens. Many choose lip fillers to help reverse this aging process, but there is a more long-lasting option for full, youthful-looking lips, known as the lip lift.

At Sunder Plastic Surgery, we understand that the desire for youthful, supple lips goes beyond the trend of the moment. Our clients, many of whom are dedicated to their families and careers, seek lasting solutions that allow them to get with their busy lives. Driven by innovation and expertise, we offer the lip lift procedure as a transformative option to achieve the youthful curvature and appealing shape of your lips. With our commitment to natural beauty enhancement, we ensure that your lip lift experience is tailored to your individual needs, helping you achieve your desired look with confidence and authenticity.

What is a Lip Lift?

As time takes its toll, the area between the nose and upper lip can gradually lengthen, affecting the overall appearance of the lips. For some, a longer upper lip is a genetic trait. While lip fillers have gained popularity as a temporary solution, a lip lift offers a more enduring and transformative approach.

A lip lift is performed in two ways: the upper lip lift and the corner lip lift.

  • Upper Lip Lift: This technique is the most common lip lift procedure and involves removing a small strip of skin and tissue just below the nose's base. The extracted skin is then carefully lifted, drawing the lip upward, nearer to the nose. To achieve this, a precise incision is made beneath the nose. Once sutured, this repositioning of the skin allows for a more prominent display of the teeth when you smile and enhances the volume of the pink portion of the lip.
  • Corner Lip Lift: For individuals seeking to address a "permanent frown," the corner lip lift is employed. This method necessitates creating a "wedge incision" positioned directly above the corners of the mouth. The incision is sealed using dissolvable sutures, facilitating a subtle and natural-looking uplift at the corners of the mouth.

The Benefits of a Lip Lift

Choosing a lip lift presents an array of advantages that cater to your desire for naturally enhanced lips:

  • Near-Permanent Fullness: Unlike lip fillers that require regular maintenance, a lip lift provides lasting volume for years by elevating the pink portion of your lip, resulting in a youthful and plump appearance.
  • Enhanced Lip Show: A lip lift exposes more of your teeth when you smile, creating a vibrant and captivating smile.
  • Versatility with Fillers: Opting for a lip lift does not exclude you from receiving lip injections in the future if desired. In fact, the combination can offer a more comprehensive and dramatic result.
  • Improved Lip Shape: The procedure repositions the lip's contour, yielding a harmonious and balanced appearance.
  • Minimal Downtime: Recovery from a lip lift is relatively swift, allowing you to return to your regular routine with minimal interruption.
  • Subtle Scarring: The incisions made during the lip lift are strategically placed to minimize visibility, ensuring your results are the focus.
  • Natural Look and Feel: The permanent enhancement maintains the natural integrity of your lips, yielding a result that is authentic to your unique features.

The Lip Lift Process: What to Expect

Your aesthetic journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Sarmela Sunder. During this appointment, you'll discuss your aesthetic goals, medical history, and any concerns you may have. Dr. Sunder will evaluate your lip anatomy and offer professional recommendations tailored to your unique needs. Based on the details of your consultation, Dr. Sunder will create a custom surgical plan designed to achieve your desired lip enhancement outcomes. Whether you're interested in an upper lip lift, corner lip lift, or a combination of both, the plan will be carefully crafted to align with your goals.

On the day of your lip lift, you can expect a comfortable and efficient experience. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure you're comfortable. Dr. Sunder will make the necessary minor incisions, remove a small amount of tissue as per the treatment plan, and skillfully reposition the lip to create a natural, balanced appearance. The lip lift procedure takes about an hour and a half and is performed under local anesthesia.

Lip Lift Recovery

Following your lip lift procedure, you can expect to experience some swelling, tightness, and potential minor discomfort. You'll be able to return home on the same day, and Dr. Sunder will provide you with detailed instructions on caring for your lips during the initial healing period. The first few days after your lip lift, you may experience some swelling and mild discomfort. You'll likely need to stick to soft foods for the first three to five days to promote healing and minimize stress on the lip area. While initial swelling is common, it will gradually subside, revealing the enhanced contour of your lips. Within a few days, your sutures will be removed. This appointment is a pivotal step in your recovery process. Dr. Sunder will evaluate and discuss your healing progress and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Subsequent follow-up appointments may be scheduled to track your healing and ensure your satisfaction with the results. Over the next few weeks, any residual swelling will continue to decrease, and you'll notice the contours of your lips becoming more defined. As the swelling subsides, the results of your lip lift will become more apparent, revealing the enhanced aesthetics of your lips. As your healing period completes, you'll see the full impact of your lip lift. The tightened upper lip and refined proportions will give you a more youthful and balanced appearance. You'll enjoy the benefits of your lip lift for years to come, as it provides a long-lasting solution to rejuvenate and enhance the beauty of your lips.
