Lip Lift

Lip lift Lip lift surgery is a surgical procedure often referred to as an upper lip lift. The procedure elevates the position of the upper lip to create a more youthful and relaxed smile. Lip lift shortens the skin distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip. You've probably all heard of lip injections called fillers or lip implants. Unlike lip fillers, there is another method that is permanent and gives the lip a voluminous appearance. The name of this procedure is Lip Lift, also known as lip lift or lip lift surgery.

A small strip of skin is removed under your nose to lift your upper lip. This also rounds out a bit, resulting in the appearance of larger, fuller lips. As you age, the skin between the lower part of the nose and the upper part of the upper lip lengthens, which can make your lips appear smaller and longer on your face. An upper lip lift shortens the area between the nose and upper lip (an area called the philtrum) that brings out the red of the lips, permanently enhancing naturally thin lips or those that have thinned with age. Lip lift also exposes more of the upper teeth, making you look younger. 

Liplift increases the amount of the pink part, which makes the lips look fuller and more defined. In an attractive upper lip, the anterior incisors should appear with a smile a few mm. If your upper lips are long, it closes the appearance of your teeth, and with this process, the visibility of the upper lips is increased.

How is Lip Lift Surgery Performed?

The procedure is mostly done by numbing the upper lip area with local anesthesia, and then the excess skin is removed so that the skin in this area reaches the required length after special measurements.

In order to increase the visibility of the pink part of the lip, the lip is turned out with special stitches. Then, using absorbable suture materials, the wound area is closed so that the scar remains on the root of the nose, and the area is closed in a sterile manner with a special skin-colored tape.

What Should Be Done Before Lip Lift Surgery?

If it will be done with general anesthesia before the surgery, you should not eat and drink liquid food for 6 hours. If the lip lift surgery will be performed with local anesthesia, you do not need to be hungry. Smoking should be reduced 1 week before the surgery and for 2 weeks after the surgery. If general anesthesia will be applied, do not drink alcohol 48 hours in advance. Aspirin and blood thinners should be discontinued 2 weeks before the Liplift operation.

The lip lift procedure can be performed in a clinic and because it is not a very painful procedure, it is mostly performed with local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia.
