As with many parts of the human body, the upper lip often begins to stretch and sag as we age. This lends to the appearance of being worn out, sad, fatigued, or even curled under. In many cases, especially with older patients, injections are less than helpful and can weigh the mouth down. This is the opposite of what you want in the quest to update your facial features. In general, lip lifts are performed through modification of the skin and tissues above the mouth. This is performed through a discreetly placed incision along the base of the nostrils in order to remove a small strip of skin and underlying tissue. A meticulous closure ensues to allow the scar to heal nicely hidden. This procedure leads to improved upper lip show and shortens the distance from the base of the nose to the upper lip, which is one of the main causes of an aging perioral appearance. The operation is typically performed in the comfort and privacy of our in-office surgical suites under local anesthesia with light oral sedation, if needed. Sutures are typically removed in 5-7 days and you can resume full activities after 2 weeks. Scar care recommendations will be made and final results can take 6-12 months.
