A lip lift is a targeted cosmetic surgery, focusing on just the lips, but it can make a big difference in your overall appearance, and possibly your self-esteem as well. A lip lift can correct sagging, length, size and more. It’s important to discuss the reasons for your lip lift with your doctor so they know to best help you get the results you desire.
Improve Your Smile
If the corners of your mouth turn downward, it may make you appear sad or angry. A lip lift can correct this to give you a more positive expression. Showing your upper teeth while smiling is a non-verbal cue for others as to just how happy or excited you are. If your lips don’t allow you to show much of your teeth when smiling, a lip lift may be able to correct this as well.
More Youthful Appearance
Our lips thin as we age and some things can make us appear to age faster, such as smoking. The vermillion line, or the border between darker lip tissue and the skin of your face, can become lighter or blurred as we get older. With a lip lift, this can be corrected so your lips have a more defined shape.
If you’ve lost confidence in your smile due to aging or you’ve just never been happy with the size, shape or definition of your lips, then a lip lift may be able to help. By improving your self-image, you may feel freer to smile and laugh, enjoying a more active social life as you share your new smile with those around you.
While injectable lip fillers offer more immediate results and shorter recovery time, a lip lift will provide more permanent change.
