Upper lip lift: improvement of facial appearance
In the world of facial aesthetics, surgical procedures are becoming increasingly popular to achieve a younger and fresher appearance. The upper lip lift is one such procedure that has gained popularity among those who want to improve their facial appearance.
What is an upper lip lift?
Upper lip lift, also known as “upper lip lift”, is an aesthetic surgical procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the upper lip. The main purpose of this procedure is to lift and tighten the skin and tissues in the upper lip area, so as to achieve a firmer and more youthful lip contour. This procedure can be performed independently or in combination with other facial aesthetic procedures, such as rhinoplasty or facelift.
Who is the right candidate for an upper lip lift?
The upper lip lift is a suitable option for people who have the following characteristics:
- Loose or aged skin in the upper lip area.
- Drooping or flattened upper lip.
- The appearance of “smoker’s mouth” or “neck beads,” caused by vertical wrinkles of the upper lip.
- People who want to achieve a younger and firmer facial appearance.
It is important to speak with a cosmetic surgeon to assess whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure and to discuss your individual expectations.
Upper lip lifting procedure:
The upper lip lifting procedure is performed under local anaesthesia or sedation, depending on the patient’s preferences and medical indications. Here are the typical steps of the procedure:
Marking: The surgeon marks the area to be treated, establishing the incision points and the direction of traction.
Incisions: Small incisions are made in or near the red border of the upper lip. These incisions are discreet and will not usually be visible after healing.
Lifting and tightening: The surgeon lifts and tightens the skin and tissues in the upper lip area to correct sagging or laxity.
Closing the incisions: The incisions are carefully closed with fine sutures.
The results of the procedure can be seen immediately, and most patients can return to their usual activities within a few days.
