THE ART OF ENHANCEMENT

LIP LIFT

20’S AND OLDER; REDUCES UPPER LIP LENGTH, ENHANCES SMILE WITH INCREASED TOOTH VISIBILITY, REJUVENATES AGED LIPS, BOOSTS LIP VOLUME.

Experience the elegance of the Lip Lift, a refined procedure that reshapes the aesthetics of the lips for enhanced facial harmony. Dr. Jason Champagne excels in this precise technique, aimed at reducing the space between the nose and the upper lip, thereby lifting the lip to unveil a fuller, more youthful look. Perfect for those desiring a lasting enhancement of the lip contour without continuous filler treatments, the Lip Lift offers a one-time, sophisticated modification. Seize the chance to highlight the natural allure of your lips, resulting in a harmonious and rejuvenated facial appearance that shines from within.

Natural Beauty Through Subtle Elevation

An elongated or thin upper lip, whether a genetic trait or a consequence of aging and gravity, can be elegantly addressed with a lip lift. This condition may result in insufficient tooth visibility when smiling for those with an extended upper lip, while individuals with a thinner lip may seek enhanced exposure of the pink lip tissue.

The lip lift technique effectively shortens the upper lip, enhancing the visibility of both the pink lip portion and the upper teeth. This adjustment not only augments the fullness of your smile but also allows for a more expressive and vibrant appearance.

Who is an Ideal CANDIDATE for a Lip Lift?

  • Elongated upper lip (from the top of the pink portion of the lip to the bottom of the nose).
  • Thin upper lip (pink portion).
  • Minimal tooth show with smiling.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

Dr. Champagne will review your medical history and perform a physical exam. Be prepared to answer questions about current and past medical conditions. Discuss any medications you are currently taking or have taken recently, as well as any surgeries you have undergone. It is crucial to inform us if you are allergic to any medications. To assess your treatment options and eligibility for a lip lift, Dr. Champagne will evaluate and measure aspects of your face with your mouth open and closed, and while smiling. You will also take photographs for your medical record. During your consultation, Dr. Champagne will explore your motivations for seeking a lip lift and set realistic expectations for the post-procedure appearance.

Preparing for Your Lip Lift

Certain preoperative tests may be required based on your age and overall health. We will ensure these are conducted before your procedure. Smokers will be advised to quit smoking before the procedure and throughout the recovery phase to enhance healing and minimize risk. Assistance in quitting smoking will be provided if needed. You’ll be instructed to avoid certain medications, like aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements that could increase bleeding. We will give you a comprehensive list of medications to avoid. The lip lift is performed in our procedure room for your comfort, with medications provided to ease and minimize discomfort. Arrange for transportation to and from our office on the day of your procedure.

Recovery Insights

The lip lift procedure involves a discreet incision under the nose, following the natural contour where the nostrils connect to the upper lip, thus ensuring minimal visibility. Post-procedure care is straightforward, requiring only the application of antibacterial ointment until the sutures are removed. Typically, swelling is minimal, bruising is rare, and sutures are removed after a week. Mineral makeup may be used to conceal any lingering discoloration as it fades.

Other Beneficial Procedures

In addition to a lip lift, patients may enhance their results with lip filler injections, such as Restylane, for added volume and definition.
