Although lip lift falls under the category of lip augmentation, it is not a procedure performed with injectable or permanent fillers, but a surgical procedure that requires intervention on the skin above the lip. It is also popularly called the Bullhorn Lip Lift.
What is Lip Lift?
You may have a thin lip structure genetically or a duller fullness on your lips due to aging than before. Lip lift is a procedure that aims to make the pink part of the upper lip more visible. In this state, by paying attention to the lip-to-nose ratio, both the appearance of your upper lip increases and the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose is shortened. This surgical method can be an alternative to injectable fillers. It gives the best results especially for people with a long face structure and a long philtrum (the distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip).
Lip lift, which is a method preferred by many people who do not like the current structure of their lips and who apply to injectable filler applications at certain intervals, is a permanent application. It is also a good option for people looking for a natural-looking lip augmentation effect.
Who Can Have a Lip Lift?
If you have a thin upper lip, upper teeth that are not visible when you smile, and a long philtrum and you are tired of having lip fillings all the time, lip lift may be a good option for you. As a result, you get a larger upper lip, more balanced facial contours and a more attractive appearance. The effect of lip augmentation by lip lift is permanent and does not need to be repeated.
Lip Lift – How To Do Lip Lift?
Lip lift- Lip lift is a surgical procedure performed in the operating room environment. The surgeon removes excess skin from under the nose and shapes the lips. The procedure takes about 40 minutes and is performed under general or often local anesthesia depending on the patient’s condition. As a result, the upper lip appears larger and your philtrum becomes shorter. Lip lift usually leaves no scars. Traces are hidden under the natural skin under the nose. The scar under the nose disappears over time, takes the color of the associated skin appearance and is barely visible.
