About Lip Lifts

Our plastic surgeons are experienced in advanced aesthetic procedures of the face. We offer a selection of complete facial procedures that can revamp your overall look. One example is the lip lift procedure. Lip lifts reshape and provide distinct definition to the curves of the lips to reveal a voluminous, more desirable mouth. During your consultation at DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics, we will ask you questions, evaluate your cosmetic goals, and help you determine if a lip lift procedure will help you meet your aesthetic goals.

Is A Lip lIft Right For You?

The treatment is minimally invasive, uncomplicated in nature, and usually yields favorable outcomes. You might be a good candidate if you:

  • have unbalanced or thin lips
  • prefer a more defined vermilion or Cupid's bow
  • undergo facial surgery and want to balance your lips with the rest of your features
  • have undergone rhinoplasty and found that your lips are now too long

During an appointment with one of our doctors, please explain your individual needs so we can choose the best lip procedure for you.

Surgical Technique

During your consultation, we will discuss the various procedure types offered during lip lift surgery. Generally, depending on your cosmetic goal, we use one of the following procedures:

Gull-wing Lip Lift

This approach is commonly employed to enhance the appearance of the vermilion or the lip line, which forms the crests of the Cupid’s bow. During this surgery, the skin is meticulously removed and the lips are lifted and reshaped to heighten the depth of the lip line.

Sub-nasal Lip Lift 

During this procedure, a little piece of skin from underneath the nose is taken and then raised and sewn into the correct place below it. This lifting technique helps the lips to appear larger, emphasizing the Cupid's bow and increasing the volume of the vermilion.

What to Expect

Typically, lip drop or lift procedures provide gorgeous and immediate outcomes. Based on the technique chosen in your consultation, lip lift and drop techniques may require local or general anesthesia. The duration of the procedure takes anywhere from a few minutes or two hours. Along with some discomfort, you should expect bruising and swelling the first two weeks following a lip lift or drop surgery because of the delicate skin on your lips and face. It can take two months for the full results of a lip procedure to be unveiled. After the swelling and bruising have subsided, you should see obvious enhancements and beautiful results.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a lip lift?

A lip lift reshapes the contours of your lips or the Cupid's bow. Overall, it helps enhance the outline of your lips and is an outpatient procedure. Both of our double board-certified doctors have extensive experience when it comes to performing delicate facial procedures. A lip lift can offer beautiful and long-lasting results without needing multiple dermal filler injections.

Am I a good candidate for a lip lift?

The ideal candidate includes patients who want to enhance their mouth because of thinness, stretched, or poorly defined lips. Before undergoing the surgery, we encourage patients to set realistic expectations and understand the recovery requirements and possible side effects. During your initial appointment, we will help you determine if a lip lift is right for you by discussing all of the possible choices and helping you feel informed about your options.

How much will a lip lift cost?

Before your surgery, we will complete a thorough assessment of your lips and listen to your cosmetic concerns. Next, we will create a care plan for you. After completing the care plan, we can determine the final cost of the surgery. Generally, the fees will include our surgeon's fee, the anesthesiologist, operating room, surgical supplies, and your follow-up appointments. We do offer payment plans and low-interest surgical financing. Please be sure to ask our staff more about your payment options.

How long is the recovery?

Depending on the complexity of the procedure, patients can return to work after a week. Patients will experience some redness and bruising throughout the healing process; however, this should subside in the first 3 – 4 days. To reduce swelling, we recommend using cold compresses. We will remove your stitches at the first follow-up session.

Are there complications from the lip lift procedure?

Dr. DeRosa and Dr. Banks have extensive experience performing lip lift procedures. In general, you will experience some bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort, but infection, scarring, and nerve damage are not common. At your consultation, we will thoroughly discuss all of the possible risks to help you feel knowledgeable about the surgery.
