What is an Upper Lip Lift?
Many of our patients want plump, luscious lips, but weren't gifted with them naturally. Rather than turn to lip filler and lip injections, many of our patients turn to a longer-term solution called an upper lip lift.
An upper lip lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that reduces the stretch of skin between the base of the nose and the upper lip to expose more of the lip and create the illusion of a more full and plump pout. Dr. Bresiter Ghosh and her team typically recommend this solution to patients who want a more permanent solution to their naturally thin lips. If you're interested in learning more about the lip lift and whether it's right for you, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Bresiter Ghosh. She'll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
What are the Benefits of an Upper Lip Lift?
There are many benefits of receiving an upper lip lift with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:
- Reduces the stretch of skin between the nose and the upper lip called the "philtrum"
- Enhances the natural volume of the lips by exposing more of the upper lip underneath
- Creates the illusion of fuller, plumper lips
- Results have the potential to last a lifetime
- Boosts overall confidence
How is an Upper Lip Lift Performed?
Your upper lip lift will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. Dr. Breister Ghosh will make strategically make discrete incisions underneath the nose that will be concealed after the recovery process. Through these incisions, excess skin between the nose and the upper lip is removed and underlying structures within this area of the face are tightened. The entire surgical procedure may take up to an hour to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Upper Lip Lift?
Following your upper lip lift, a dressing will be placed around the nose to reduce swelling and promote healing. Dr. Breister Ghosh will also provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure your healing process is quick and easy. We often encourage our patients to ice their treated areas often to reduce excess swelling and bruising. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for around 3 to 5 days off work.
How Much Will My Upper Lip Lift Cost?
The cost of your upper lip lift will likely vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results.
