What is a lip lift?

A lip lift is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the height and definition of the lips, unlike treatments focused on adding lip volume. During a lip lift, excess skin is removed from the area between the upper lip and the base of the nose, resulting in a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

By shortening the distance between the nose and the upper lip, a lip lift can create the illusion of fuller lips and improve the overall balance and proportions of the face. This procedure is for you if you are seeking to correct a thin or elongated upper lip, enhance lip symmetry, or reduce the appearance of a gummy smile. Unlike dermal fillers or lip implants, which primarily add volume to the lips, a surgical lip lift provides long-lasting results and can achieve a more natural and defined lip contour.

What does a lip lift involve and why people choose it?

At Dr. Ducu Clinics we perform the lip lift surgery to offer you the aesthetics you desire.

During the procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision either directly below the nose or along the natural crease of the nostrils, and excess skin is removed. This helps to elevate the upper lip, expose more of the vermilion (pink part) of the lips, and create a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Many of our patients choose a lip lift to address thin or elongated upper lips, restore lip proportions affected by aging, or achieve a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance.

The moment I had stepped in to the clinic I was greeted by the lovely Dr Bisma who had performed my PRP. Dr Bisma was amazing from the start to finish,and with her wealth of knowledge and expertise, I knew I was in good hands. Whilst trying to provide comfort during this process and reassurance I was admired Dr Bisma’s sensitivity and compassion throughout. Thank you to Dr Bisma and the team for this experience. Would definitely recommend!

Lip lift surgery at Dr. Ducu Clinics London

1. Consultation

Prior to your lip lift surgery, you will undergo a thorough consultation with one of our plastic surgeons. During this appointment, the surgeon will evaluate your concerns, discuss your goals, and assess if you are a good fit for a lip lift. He will also evaluate your overall health, facial anatomy, and aesthetic preferences. Afterwards, the surgeon will measure your lips and digitally design the new look desired after surgery. This helps ensure that the outcome aligns with your facial features and aesthetic preferences. Also, this is the moment to ask all the questions you may have about the procedure.

2. The procedure

On the day of the procedure, you will receive local anesthesia, to ensure comfort during the surgery. The surgeon will make precise incisions either directly below the nose or along the natural crease of the nostrils, carefully removing excess skin. This elevates the upper lip, exposes more of the vermilion (pink part) of the lips, and creates a more defined lip contour. Throughout the procedure, the surgeon pays close attention to achieving symmetry and balance between the upper lip and surrounding facial features. This involves careful measurements and adjustments to ensure the final result aligns with your expectations. The procedure typically takes about one to two hours to complete.

3. Aftercare & recovery

After the lip lift surgery, you will be recommended to take prescribed medications to manage pain and reduce the risk of infection. Also, you should avoid strenuous activities and movements that could strain the incisions, and keep the surgical site clean and protected. Swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort are common during the initial recovery period, but these symptoms gradually subside over time. You may have to take 1 week off from work.

4. Results

You can expect to see initial results after the procedure, as swelling resolves and the surgical site heals. However, final results may take several weeks to fully manifest as the tissues settle and any residual swelling subsides. With proper care and patience, you can enjoy long-lasting improvements in lip height and definition, enhanced lip symmetry, and a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance that complements your facial features. Unlike temporary solutions such as lip fillers, a surgical lip lift provides permanent results.

Here are some of the most popular lip lifts:

Direct lip lift - Also known as a "gull-wing" lip lift, this procedure involves making a horizontal incision directly above the upper lip vermilion (pink part). This provides a dramatical change.

Central lip lift - The central lip lift focuses on lifting the central portion of the upper lip to enhance lip height and cupid's bow definition.

Subnasal bullhorn - In this technique, a crescent-shaped incision is made beneath the nose, resembling the shape of a bull's horns. This provides subtle to moderate enhancement.

Corner lip lift - The corner lip lift, also known as a "smile lift" or "lip commissure lift," targets the corners of the mouth to create a more youthful and upturned lip appearance.

Italian lip lift - The Italian lip lift is similar to the central lip lift but involves a longer incision along the base of the nose, extending to the nostrils. This technique allows for more extensive elevation of the upper lip and cupid's bow, resulting in a more pronounced enhancement of lip height and definition.

Your surgeon will recommend the right procedure for you.

What are the different types of lip lifts?

At Dr. Ducu Clinics we offer various types of lip lifts, treating any concerns you may have regarding their appearance.

Lip lift surgery London - Frequently asked questions

Ideal candidates for lip lift procedures are people who desire enhanced lip height, definition, and symmetry. They may have concerns such as thin or elongated lips, a flat cupid’s bow, or a lack of lip show. here are some people who are not suited for this procedure. One of the most common reasons for unsuitability is a significantly higher proportion of the teeth that show. If lifting the lip would result in further showing of the teeth, the patient won’t get the desired result of improving his or her features. However, a referral to a cosmetic dentist who can perform a tooth shortening treatment may address this issue. In those cases, the procedure may still be an option.

Yes, lip lift surgery is safe when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications, including infection, bleeding, scarring, asymmetry, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. However, these risks are minimum.

Yes, lip lift surgery typically leaves scars, but their visibility can vary depending on the specific technique used and the individual’s healing process. With proper wound care and scar management techniques, such as silicone gel sheets and massage, scars can often become less noticeable over time, allowing you to enjoy the aesthetic benefits of the procedure with minimal visibility of scars. Talk about this with your surgeon.

The results of lip lifts are long-lasting and can be enjoyed for many years. However, natural aging processes, changes in weight, and other factors may gradually affect the appearance of the lips over time.

To prepare for surgery, undergo a thorough medical evaluation, quit smoking, and avoid certain medications that may increase the risk of complications. Arrange for transportation and support during the initial recovery period, and follow your surgeon’s pre-operative instructions closely.

You can gentle cleanse your face, including the treated area, within a day or two after surgery. However, it’s essential to avoid scrubbing or rubbing the incision site directly, as this may disrupt the healing process and increase the risk of complications.

You should avoid strenuous exercise, heavy lifting, bending over, and activities that involve excessive facial movements or stretching of the lip area. Additionally, you should refrain from smoking and consuming alcohol during the initial recovery period, as these habits can impair healing and increase the risk of complications.

You can expect to take about 1 week off from work to allow for initial recovery. If your job involves strenuous physical activity, prolonged periods of standing, or other factors that may compromise your healing or increase the risk of complications, your surgeon may recommend taking additional time off.

Lip lift surgery typically involves some discomfort during the initial recovery period, but it is generally well-tolerated with appropriate pain management measures. Your surgeon will likely prescribe pain medications or recommend over-the-counter pain relievers to help alleviate any discomfort following the procedure.

Yes. Common procedures that may be performed in conjunction with lip lift surgery include rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), facelift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), brow lift, chin augmentation, and facial fat grafting, among others. Your surgeon will recommend the right procedures for you.
