Make It All About The Lips: Lip Lifts With Dr. Champagne

Did you know that perfecting your smile isn’t always about your teeth? Some individuals with an elongated upper lip often lack an appropriate amount of tooth-show when they smile, and those with a thin upper lip often desire more visibility of the pink lip tissue. This can be a subtle but drastic factor when it comes to the aesthetic balance of your smile and your overall facial appearance. Perfect for those in their twenties or older, for those looking to shorten a long upper lip, correcting an aging lip, or improving lip fullness, a Lip Lift procedure may be just what you’re looking for to give you the confidence you’re after.



What To Expect?

Now that you know if you’re a good candidate or not for a Lip Lift (see above), this is what you can expect if you’re ready to take the next step. Expert double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jason Champagne will review your medical history and perform a physical exam. Be prepared to answer questions about current and past medical conditions. Talk about any medications you are currently taking or have taken recently, as well as any surgeries you have had. It is extremely important to tell us if you are allergic to any medications. To determine your treatment options and candidacy for a lip lift, Dr. Champagne will examine and measure areas of your face with your mouth open and closed and while smiling. In addition, you will take photographs for your medical record. During your consultation, Dr. Champagne will discuss with you your reasons for wanting a lip lift and what your expectations are in terms of appearance after the procedure.

What Is The Recovery?

As a standalone procedure, a lip lift is performed in our office. Dr. Champagne creates a small, well-hidden incision placed just below the nose in the natural curvature where the nostrils meet the upper lip. No bandages are necessary, and care for the incision site requires only antibacterial ointment while the sutures are in place. Swelling is minimal, bruising is extremely rare, and small sutures are removed after seven days. Mineral makeup can then be used to camouflage any remaining discoloration while it continues to resolve.
