How is a Lip Lift performed?
A lip lift is a minor facial surgery with a quick recovery time. The procedure involves placing a hidden incision along the bottom of the nose with subsequent removal of skin and tissue in order to lift the entire central portion of the upper lip and reveal more of the pink region of the lip. Sutures are removed five days after surgery and a thin, red line will be present beneath the nose for a few months prior to fading away.
Lip Lift or Fillers?
Dr. Givens can help you to have a more attractive facial balance by enhancing your lips with dermal fillers or with a lip lift surgery. In either case, you can be confident that her precision and approach will create natural, defined lips that leave you feeling more confident and youthful. However, as patients focus more on the structure and shape of their lips, they desire consistency without breaking the bank. The constant upkeep of temporary fillers, the uncertainty that the filled outcome will be similar to the last appointment, and the endless cycle of bruising and swelling directly after injection can be wearing. If you have relied on regular filler injections to enhance your lips, a lip lift is an alternative that lasts.
What other treatments are recommended at the same time as a Lip Lift?
Not only does a lip lift in Austin improve visible signs of aging and redefine the contours of the upper lip to provide results that last for decades, but it also can be performed simultaneously with many other aesthetic procedures. Additional treatment options include facial contouring, nasal reshaping, skin rejuvenation, revision and repair, and non-surgical maintenance.
