If you’re tired of fillers or injectable treatments, but you want full, appealing lips and a beautiful smile, there is a procedure that might be perfect for you–the lip lift. Lip enhancement doesn’t have to mean endless fillers or Botox. The results you want can be achieved long term, providing a full upper lip, and a symmetrical supple mouth.
What Should I Expect During a Lip Lift?
Before your lip lift procedure, you will have a thoughtful, detailed consultation with Dr. Tansavatdi. She will review your medical history, examine your lips and skin, discuss your aesthetic concerns, explain the procedure in detail, and design a personalized treatment plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Once your procedure begins, Dr. Tansavatdi will inject local anesthesia into the upper lip area. She will then draw marks under your nose where the incision will be made. This incision is made precisely to ensure scarring is kept at an absolute minimum. Dr. Tansavatdi will then remove a small section of skin under the nose. She will lift the remaining skin very gently upward to the base of the nose and secure it with sutures.
