Lip Lift

Also known as a solution for the short upper lip, angel lip lift operation is fit for patients who are not satisfied with the length of their upper lips. The upper lip refers to the area between the columella base (column between nosetrils) and the reddish-pinkish area of the lip. In plastic surgery, the ideal length of this area is normally between 12 and 15 millimeters.  Nevertheless, this may vary depending on persons’ facial features and size. In lip lift surgery, we aim at reducing the distance in such area and creating an angel’s wing effect in persons’ lips.

The lips are one of the most important centres for communication. Any subtle changes in the contours of our lips have the power to tell if we are pleased, amused or unhappy. On top of being a powerful silent communicator, our lips also create a framework for our teeth. Full lips, and well-balanced tooth show emphasise the youthful appearance and a warm-hearted character of a person.

Upgrade lip volume with a lip lift!

A lip lift is a popular surgical procedure that can be done for patients of all ages, and benefits those who wish to improve their smile and the appearance of the mouth area. Through this procedure, the surgeon reduces the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose, which gives the appearance of full lips and an overall youthful complexion. A well performed lip lift can also eliminate the need for lip fillers as the lifting of the upper lip also creates an eversion effect and exposes more of the natural upper lip.

What are the reasons for having a Lip lift?

First of all, facial features of persons who are interested in an upper lip lift or upper lift shortening surgery are checked. The length of the distance between the nose and lip must be measured, while the person is resting, that is, when his/her lips are not moving. In fact, perpendicular length of the upper lip extends to almost the length of the lower lip-chin. This feature is a sufficient reason for considering the upper lip shortening application, in order to create more harmony and balance.

When we smile, it is normal for the upper lift to be pulled upwards and outwards, revealing a part of our teeth. If your upper lip is too long, your teeth are not seen when you smile. This is one of the reasons for having an upper lip lift surgery. When your upper lip is lifted, your teeth will become more visible.

What is the goal of lip surgery?

Whether inherited or as a consequence of aging and gravity, an elongated upper lip with little red lip show appears less feminine and makes a face look aged. Lip surgery restores volumes and proportions in order to draw attention to the area of your mouth. This means a shortening of the distance between the nose and the upper lip which results in an increase in tooth show and the restoration of volume to thin lips. There are various procedures that are summarised under the term lip surgery.

What is upper lip lift?

During the upper lip lifting surgery, the excess skin is removed, in order to shorten the vertical length. During the lip lift operation, an incision is made in the area where the upper lip meets the nose. The excess skin is removed through this incision. Edges of the incision in the nose base are sutured to complete the operation. This way, the distance between the upper lip and nose base is shortened, and the upper lip is taken up. After the lip lift operation, the upper lip will seem naturally upturned. Because sutures are made from under the nose in this procedure, operation scar is not visible. Most of the methods described above can be offered as a day case procedure, performed under local anaesthetic in our practice. If you are having a general anaesthetic for another facial procedure, lip surgery may then be combined.

Post-operation recovery process

Post Lip lift operation recovery process varies between 5-7 days. In this process, you need to apply ice massage to your upper lip. It is normal to have a swollen lip during the first 72 hours after the operation. Sutures are removed within 5 days, and you get back to your everyday life.

What are the results of a Lip lift operation?

  • After the operation, the distance between the upper lip and nose gets shorter.
  • Vermillion line of the upper lip is taken up.
  • Red line of the upper lip gets longer.
  • The ratio of the upper and lower lips changes.

Who are the best candidates for Lip lift?

Lip lift surgery brings positive results to those who look for permanent solutions for bigger lips and want to shorten the distance between their lip and nose.  After the one-hour operation, you can go back to your home and stand up within the same day.

What are the benefits of liplift?

Lip lift is an effective procedure that can significantly improve the overall balance of a face. It leads to a more feminine lip shape with long lasting results. Patients are able to see the difference immediately after surgery. Many patients report a lack of need for repeated lip filler injections following the procedure. Due to the initial swelling, your lips will look puffy and the movement as well as sensation will be reduced. As the swelling settles, your lips will regain the original movement. It usually takes between 3-4 weeks to see full results.

What are the complications?

The main complication after a lip lift is a noticeable scar. For this reason patients who have a history of poor scarring (hypertrophic or keloids) are not good candidates. Other rare complications include; infection, delayed healing, asymmetry, under or overcorrection, scar contracture and smile distortion.

What about the scar?

The incision is made into the natural lines and shadows at the columella (base of the nose), nostrils, and can extend slightly to the base creases. The scar is very well concealed and with appropriate surgical technique and aftercare it will become inconspicuous after a few months. After the initial period of wound healing and maturation, the scar can be covered with soft makeup during social interaction, until it eventually completely fades after a few months.
