What is lip lifting surgery?
Upper lip lift, sometimes called upper lip shortening, is a surgical procedure which involves removing excess skin from the upper lip area in order to shorten its vertical length so the lips look firmer and fuller. Moreover, upper lip lifting results in a more balanced and youthful look as the face regains its natural symmetry that may have been lost due to age-related skin stretching etc. It is worth noting that the incision is made underneath the base of the nose thus post-operative scarring is almost non-existent.
Who is a proper candidate for lip lifting surgery?
A proper candidate for lip lifting surgery is someone with a significantly low vermilion border which is a margin between the upper lip and normal skin above it. This is a result of skin lengthening that is usually associated with aging or one’s natural anatomic properties. If the droopy skin of the upper lip hangs over one’s teeth with or without smiling, lip lift is just the right solution for a wider smile and more visible upper lip vermilion. Last but not least, a suitable candidate for lip lifting surgery should be in good health and have realistic expectations about the surgery results.
Preparation for lip lifting
In order to properly prepare for lip lifting surgery, a few pre-operative guidelines should be followed:
Practice a healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly, having your diet balanced and staying hydrated will strengthen your body and recovery will be faster.
Stop using tobacco products and consuming alcohol at least 6 weeks before the procedure.
In order to prevent perioperative complications, taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and other blood thinners should be avoided, unless the operating doctor has advised otherwise.
Consult a plastic surgeon about your allergies, previous surgeries and daily medications. If you have any pre-existing conditions that require daily usage of medication, your operating doctor should be informed about it. Follow your specific pre-operative instructions as they may vary depending on your personal medical history.
Recovery after lip lifting surgery
Recovery after lip lifting surgery is usually fast and smooth. Here are some post-operative tips and useful information for a patient to know:
Can lip lifting be combined with facelift or other surgeries?
Upper lip lift may be easily combined with several other cosmetic surgeries, such as a facelift, rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, or facial implantation, for a more thorough facial rejuvenation. However, when several surgical procedures are combined, facial soft tissues are exposed in a relatively large area and so a greater risk of infection and a higher complication rate regarding wound healing may be observed.
After lip lifting surgery
Once the surgery has been performed, only a few more things should be taken into consideration for a smoother recovery:
It is required to keep the incision sites dry and clean up to 48 hours after the surgery. Later on patients are highly encouraged to maintain their personal hygiene routine or adjust it to the doctor‘s recommendations.
