Introduction to Lip Lift

A person’s smile is one of their most memorable expressions. Smiles are framed by lips, and hence a lip lift can be an immediately impressionable alteration to our appearance. With age and gravity, the mouth can sometimes lower its placement on the face leading to a disproportionate facial appearance. A Lip Lift in the greater Orlando area with George Papanicolaou, M.D. can address this concern and help you achieve a more attractive facial anatomy. To learn more about this cosmetic procedure at Soma Plastic Surgery in Lake Mary, FL, please keep reading the information below.

What is a Lip Lift?

A Lip Lift is a surgical procedure that aims to enhance the appearance of the lips by reducing the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose. It is a popular solution for individuals who desire fuller lips with improved definitions. During the procedure, extra skin is extracted and the remaining tissue is shifted to lift and reshape the upper region of the mouth. With a Lip Lift from Dr. Papanicolaou, you can achieve fuller and more balanced lips that you’ve always desired, enhancing your overall facial harmony and boosting your confidence in your smile.

What are the benefits of a Lip Lift?

A Lip Lift in Orlando offers several benefits for individuals looking to enhance their lip appearance, such as:
  • Enhanced shape
  • Increased volume
  • Improved symmetry

What’s the First Step?

When you come for your Lip Lift consultation, you will meet with Dr. Papanicolaou and discuss your aesthetic goals. He will then evaluate the shape, size, and proportions of your lips to assess if this procedure is the best solution for you. This evaluation will also include a discussion about your medical history to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure and prevent any unnecessary risks. Once you and Dr. Papanicolaou have discussed and agreed upon every aspect of your surgery, he will create your custom procedure plan. Before you leave, our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule the day and time of your lip lift procedure and provide you with some pre-operative instructions to follow.

What to expect on the day of Lip Lift surgery

On the day of your Lip Lift in Orlando at Soma Plastic Surgery, you will first meet with Dr. Papanicolaou and discuss your procedure one more time. Dr. Papanicolaou may make some temporary marks on your lips for targeted and previously discussed positions of the incisions. You will then be administered either local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your comfort throughout the process. Dr. Papanicolaou will skillfully perform the Lip Lift by making carefully placed incisions along the natural lip line or beneath the base of the nose, depending on the technique he chooses. He will remove any excess skin and reposition the remaining tissue to elevate your upper lip. Once finished, Dr. Papanicolaou will close the incisions with sutures and apply some bandages for additional protection. The surgery typically takes about one to two hours, and after the procedure, you will receive detailed post-operative care instructions to promote proper healing.

Lip Lift recovery

After your Lip Lift surgery, our staff will monitor you in our recovery room until you awaken from sedation. It is recommended to have a friend or caretaker drive you home in case any effects of sedation last. As you recover, it is important to give your body time to heal. There will be some swelling and bruising around your lips but should subside over the next few days. We encourage our patients to avoid any strenuous activities for the first few weeks and follow the specific guidelines for eating, drinking, talking, and using the lip and overall mouth area.
