If you want to enhance the contour of your lips with a more permanent treatment than dermal fillers, a lip lift may be exactly what you’re looking for.
What happens during the lip lift procedure?
It’s best to stop the use of blood-thinning medications and supplements for a couple of weeks before surgery. Patients have also found it effective to take arnica Montana several days before the procedure in order to reduce bruising. Dr. Bloom can perform a lip lift with the patient under local anesthesia only.
He will raise the skin just beneath the nose to cause the upper lip to lift up, which results in a fuller, poutier, more sensuous and contoured look for the lips and smile. Sutures are then placed along the incision line under the nose, concealing the scar. The procedure takes about one hour to complete.
