Lip Lift by Dermatologist Dr. Timothy Jochen

Lip Lifts Are Our Specialty at Contour Dermatology

A lip lift procedure results in several positive outcomes. Patients experience improved definition along the border of their upper lip as well as the Cupid’s Bow. Those bothered by an excessively long upper lip hiding much of their teeth when they smiled, notice a lip lift increases teeth visibility and their overall attractiveness.

What is a lip Lift?

A lip lift is a surgical procedure that enhances the appearance of the lips by removing excess skin and tissue from the upper or lower lip. This can result in a more youthful and refreshed appearance, with fuller, more defined lips. Lip lifts are performed by experienced dermatologists or plastic surgeons.

Two Types of Lip Lifts

There are two main types of lip lifts: the direct lip lift and the bullhorn lip lift. The direct lip lift involves making an incision directly below the nose and removing a strip of skin. The bullhorn lip lift involves making two incisions that resemble a bull’s horns, one on each side of the nose. The excess skin is then removed, and the remaining skin is tightened and sutured.

How are Lip Lifts Performed?

Lip lifts are typically performed under local anesthesia, and the procedure takes about an hour. There is some downtime associated with lip lifts, and patients can expect some swelling and bruising, which should subside within a few weeks. The results of a lip lift are typically long-lasting, although they may vary depending on the individual patient.

How are Lip Lifts Performed?

Lip lifts can be a good option for people who are looking to improve the appearance of their lips. However, it is important to consult with a qualified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations. They can help you determine if a lip lift is the right procedure for you and provide you with more information about the procedure and the recovery process.
