While having full, plump lips can help heighten one’s aesthetic appeal, the sad truth is not everyone is born with them. For many people, having thin lips is the norm and achieving fuller lips is left to those who are genetically blessed. Thanks to the lip lift surgery provided by Robb Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, however, having aesthetically pleasing lips doesn’t have to be something you wish for.

What Is A Lip Lift?

A lip lift is a surgical procedure that modifies the appearance of the lips by making it appear fuller and more pronounced. Unlike other lip augmentation procedures such as lip injections or implants, a lip lift offers a permanent way to enhance naturally thin lips. The procedure is designed to shorten the space between the nose and the top of the lip while increasing the amount of pink tissue. This gives the lips a more volumized look that appears more natural than other methods.

How Is The Lip Lift Surgery Performed?

The lip lift is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of incisions to make the necessary corrections. The specific technique used will depend on the needs of each individual patient. The different types of lip lifts are:

  • Direct Lip Lift
  • Subnasal Bullhorn
  • Central Lip Lift
  • Corner Lip Lift
  • Italian lip lift

To begin, Dr. Philip Robb Jr. will administer an anesthetic to help you feel comfortable during the treatment process. He will then make an incision above the upper lip to remove the extra skin that resides between the nose and top lip. Once the desired corrections are made, he will close the incisions. The process may take about an hour to complete and patients can safely return home after the procedure.

Who Should Consider Having A Lip Lift?

A lip lift is an excellent option for those who have thin lips and want to add a subtle increase of volume and those who have a large amount of skin between their top lip and nose. Patients undergoing the procedure should be in good general health and have realistic expectations. Dr. Robb Jr. will perform an initial assessment of your lips with respect to your facial contours and ask you about your medical history in order to determine if you would make a good candidate for the procedure.

What To Expect After The Surgery?

After the surgery is over, you should make sure to take time off the rest of the day to heal. You will be provided with post-operative instructions that you will need to adhere to in order to experience the best results possible. These instructions will advise you to avoid performing strenuous activities, smoking, and sleeping on your face for a couple of weeks after the lip lift.

How Much Does a Lip Lift Cost?

The cost of a lip lift varies from patient to patient and depends on their individual needs. Factors that are taken into consideration are the technique used and the amount of skin that needs to be removed to create the desired look. Dr. Robb Jr. will develop your personalized treatment plan and discuss the associated cost during your consultation.
