Upper Lip Lift Surgery

At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer lip lift surgery to augment the lips and provide noticeable improvements to the appearance of the mouth. As we age, wrinkles can begin to form on and above the lips, often referred to as “smoker’s lines” or “lipstick lines.” By shortening the distance between the nose and the mouth, lip lift surgery can eliminate these signs of aging and provide patients with youthful-looking lips. Additionally, lip lift surgery can reverse down-turned lip corners and make the lips appear more voluminous. Reducing the space between the mouth and the nose can help patients achieve more defined and rejuvenated lips.

What Is Lip Lift Surgery?

Upper lip lift surgery in Atlanta rejuvenates and enhances the appearance of the lips by shortening the distance between the upper lip and the nose, otherwise known as the philtrum. By doing so, patients can eliminate the appearance of wrinkles and achieve a refreshed facial appearance. Upper lip lift surgery can provide subtle, yet transformative improvements to the mouth area and smile. Lip lift surgery increases how much pink of the lips is exposed, as well as how much of the teeth show when the mouth is in a resting position.

When compared to filler to enhance the lips, lip lift surgery offers much more long-lasting results. On average lip fillers require touch-ups at least once a year in order to maintain results. However, the results of a lip lift are permanent. For patients who have thinner lips and are looking for a more dramatic enhancement, lip lift surgery can be combined with lip fillers to achieve optimal results. Unlike lip lift surgery, lip fillers will not eliminate wrinkles and fine lines above the natural lip line.

What Are The Benefits Of Lip Lift Surgery?

Lip lift surgery can enhance the appearance of the smile and offer youthful-looking results. When the philtrum (the area above the upper lip and below the nose) appears too long, it can affect the appearance of the mouth and create an imbalance in facial features. A shorter philtrum is seen as feminine and youthful, whereas a longer philtrum can be seen as masculine. An ideal philtrum allows just the tips of the teeth to be visible when the mouth is relaxed. Shortening the distance between the nose and the upper lip can volumize the upper lip and give the smile a more youthful and sensual appearance.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Lip Lift Surgery?

During your consultation for lip lift surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team of plastic surgery professionals will discuss your procedure goals, as well as evaluate your health history in order to determine if you are an ideal candidate. The ideal candidate for lip lift surgery is in good overall health, a non-smoker, and has realistic expectations concerning the results of their procedure. Patients who have a short philtrum are not typically good candidates for this procedure.

If you struggle from loss of volume, lip lines, wrinkles, or are tired of keeping up with lip fillers, lip lift surgery may be right for you. Lip lift surgery is ideal for both older patients looking to rejuvenate their lip appearance, as well as younger patients who are looking to augment their lip appearance. Additionally, lip lift surgery can help correct the appearance of asymmetrical lips. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we customize each lip lift treatment plan to meet the specific needs of each patient.

What Should I Expect During Lip Lift Surgery?

Lip lift surgery is most commonly performed under local anesthesia. During lip lift surgery, a small incision will be placed at the base of the nose. The skin is then carefully tucked up to lift the upper lip. By strategically placing the incision in this area, patients will notice little-to-no scarring. Before sending you home, an antibiotic ointment will be applied to promote healing.

What Should I Expect After Lip Lift Surgery?

Before sending you home after lip lift surgery, Dr. Killingsworth and his team of plastic surgery professionals will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions. It is important that patients follow these directions with care in order to minimize the recovery period and maximize their results. Each patient who undergoes lip lift surgery will experience a different healing rate.

Following lip lift surgery, patients can expect to experience mild-to-moderate discomfort, swelling, and bruising. However, these symptoms will subside in the days following the procedure. Any pain can be treated with over-the-counter medications. It is recommended that patients keep the incision site clean and covered to help expedite the recovery process. Additionally, patients should avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous activity.




What Results Should I Expect From Lip Lift Surgery?

During your consultation for lip lift surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team of plastic surgery professionals will discuss your intended results in depth. It’s important to remember that no two patients will experience the same lip lift results. The results of lip lift surgery are dependent on the patient’s aesthetic goals, healing rate, and more. To maximize the results of lip lift surgery, patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle and use daily sun protection.

Immediately after lip lift surgery, patients will be able to notice some of their results. However, it can take weeks for the full results to be noticed. As swelling continues to subside and the scar begins to fade, the results will become more prominent. As time continues to progress, the scar will continue to lighten and patients can enjoy the results of their lip lift.

How Much Does Lip Lift Surgery In Atlanta Cost?

Astra Plastic Surgery offers lip lift surgery for patients who wish to rejuvenate or enhance the appearance of their lips. The cost of your lip lift depends on a variety of factors. Because lip lift surgery is considered a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by insurance. We will provide you with the complete cost during your consultation. We accept payment by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
