Lip Lift Surgery

Lip-lift surgery is an aesthetic procedure that shortens the distance between the nose and the upper lip, everts it and improves its size, structure, and shape. It can be performed alone or along with other procedures, such as facelift.

You may want to consider lip lift surgery if you have any of the following: long distance between the nose and the upper lip, thin upper lip or lips that lost their shape due to aging and have become disproportionate to the rest of the face and did not improve with fillers alone.


1. What are the benefits of this surgery?

Lip-lift surgery shortens the distance between the nose and the upper lip, everts the lip, improves its shape, increases its size to be more proportionate with the face and gives the lips a more youthful look.

2. What type of anesthesia will I have?

Lip-lift surgery can be performed under local anesthesia alone.

3. What type of incisions will I have?

The lip-lift incision will be placed within the natural crease at the base of the
nose. This allows for removal of excess skin, tightening of muscles and lifting of the upper lip. It fades away with time and becomes barely visible. At The Skin Clinic we also use laser skin resurfacing to improve the quality of the scar.

4. What to expect after the surgery?

It is normal to have minimal swelling and some bruising for a few days after lip- lift surgery, at The Skin Clinic we are proud to have developed techniques that reduce them tremendously. This procedure has no downtime and you can resume your normal daily activities the following day. You will remove the sutures and do laser skin resurfacing for the scare 5 days after the procedure.

5. How long will the results last?

Although this surgery cannot stop your skin from aging in the future, it can rejuvenate the mouth and the lips for a long time. The result lasts at least 10 years.

6. What are the possible complications and risks of lip-lift?

Complications sometimes occur, but with proper patient preparation, careful execution and follow up we reduce their occurrence and if they ever occur we are able to manage them.
