Full lips have an undeniably powerful effect on someone’s overall aesthetic. If you want to enhance the position and shape of your lips through a single procedure, a lip lift in Beverly Hills can help you achieve the look you desire. The lips might be a small portion of the face, but they play a significant role in aesthetics and appearance overall. Genetics, age, or other factors might get in the way of having the lips you want, but a lip lift at Sykes Plastic Surgery can give you a fuller, more luscious, youthful pout.

With a lip lift, you can achieve a pair of stunning lips that match your desired appearance. Dr. Sykes works closely with you to discover your aesthetic wishes and then builds a plan to reach them.

What Is a Lip Lift?

A lip lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that modifies the shape of the lips by removing excess skin or simply tightening the area around the mouth. This will result in a fuller, more youthful appearance to the lips. Many patients choose the procedure to improve the shape and position of their upper lip, but additional aspects can be changed as well, such as the curve of your lips. Different types of lip lifts can be performed, depending on your goals and desired results. Dr. Sykes will work with you to determine the best lip lift procedure for your needs.

What Happens During Lip Lift Surgery?

Lip lift surgery is usually performed by Dr. Sykes as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home the same day. The lip lift surgery is typically relatively quick, taking only about 30 minutes to complete. We start by ensuring you are completely comfortable, usually through local anesthetic, but sedation is also available.

Dr. Sykes will make incisions in the desired area and remove the skin and tissue necessary to achieve your goals. The incisions are then closed with dissolvable sutures. Once Dr. Sykes confirms the procedure was successful, you can return home immediately. For safety reasons, having someone drive you home is ideal.

Am I A Candidate for Lip Lift Surgery in Beverly Hills?

Ideal candidates for lip lift surgery are in good physical health, non-smokers, have realistic expectations, and seek to improve their lips’ shape or position. During your consultation with Dr. Sykes, he will assess your candidacy for lip lift surgery and answer any questions you may have about the procedure.

For patients who do not want to commit to a surgical procedure, we also offer non-surgical alternatives, such as injectable fillers. These treatment options can provide impressive results through quick visits, but the results will fade over time. Together, you and Dr. Sykes can find the best solution for your plans and goals.

The Lip Lift Recovery Process

After your lip lift in Beverly Hills, you can expect some swelling and bruising around the mouth and lips. These effects are temporary and will dissipate over the following days and weeks. Most patients take about a week off before feeling comfortable enough to return to their regularly scheduled activities. It is vital during this time to follow all post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Sykes to ensure optimal healing. We are happy to provide any additional information or help if you have any questions or concerns during your recovery.

Do I Need Both an Upper and Lower Lip Lift?

Usually, patients do not require a lift to both the upper and lower lips. In most cases, injectable fillers or an upper lip lift will draw the mouth upward enough to satisfy the client’s aesthetic goals. For those who have tried injectable fillers and an upper lip lift and are still dissatisfied with the shape of the mouth or the exposure of bottom teeth, the lower lip may be lifted with fat transfer augmentation, sometimes called “fat grafting.” 

A minimally-invasive procedure, fat grafting can be done under local anesthesia. It involves harvesting fat from other areas of a patient’s body and injecting it into the lower lip and surrounding areas, plumping up the lower third of the face and giving it a more lifted and youthful appearance. Lower lip incisional procedures are less common since the lower lip vermillion (red part) can be altered easily with filler or fat injections.

When Can I See the Results From My Los Angeles Lip Lift?

Lip lift surgery provides patients with immediate results that will continue to improve in the following days and weeks as any swelling subsides. The results of lip lift surgery are long-lasting, provided you take care of your skin and lips post-operatively. With proper care and a healthy lifestyle, you can enjoy the benefits of your lip lift for a lifetime.
