Your lips are one of the most appealing facial features – or should be. Not everyone has been blessed with full, pouty lips. Dermal fillers can help you have plumper, fuller lips, but the injections must be performed at regular intervals and may produce a look you don’t like. For long-lasting and natural-looking results, you have the option to undergo a surgical lip lift. This procedure is ideal for people with naturally thin lips or who have lost lip volume due to aging.
Recovery after a lip lift What should I expect?
As with any surgery, swelling is to be expected, which varies from person to person. You must keep the incision site clean, and we will provide you with a special medical ointment to apply. The healing requires about two to three weeks, with the ultimate result achieved in approximately four to six weeks. The incision site fades to being virtually invisible, a thin white line that is hidden beneath the nose in a natural skin crease.
This procedure has the added benefit of shortening the distance between the upper lip and nose, creating a more youthful smile. When performed by Dr. Chamata, this procedure is customized and can include enhancing the look of the Cupid’s bow. As an artist and sculptor, Dr. Chamata has a rare combination of skills that can produce a superior result with this minor surgery.
