Lip Lift Surgery

It is a method used by patients who are not satisfied with the length of the upper lip area. When the red part of the lips is less visible, the upper lip appears short and the lip-to-nose distance appears longer. Thanks to the lip-lift operation, the person can achieve an appearance that is compatible with the facial features and dimensions. It should not be forgotten that this procedure is permanent and should not be confused with lip fillers. In lip augmentation processes, the lips are thickened by using various fillers. However, in the lip lift process, the distance between the upper lip and the tip of the nose is shortened, and a relatively outward turning and fuller appearance is obtained in the upper lip.

How is Eyebrow Lift Operation Performed?

Lip lift operation can be performed under local anesthesia or combined with another surgical procedure under general anesthesia. The skin that is planned to be removed to reduce the lip distance,ıt is marked by drawing to preserve the shape of the lip. After this excess skin is removed in the operating room, it is stitched after the combining process is done. After the sutures are placed, the skin edges are meticulously aligned to make the incision as less visible as possible. The skin incision is hidden as much as possible in the fold that lies under the depths of the nose and extends into the nose. The healing process varies between 5-7 days depending on the skin structure of the person. The stitches can be removed within five days and the person can return to his/her social life.
