Looking for a more permanent lip enhancement solution? Lip lift procedure might be the right option for you. Lip lifting is a minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure that modifies the cosmetic appearance of the lips by reshaping them to balance the upper and lower lips or to increase their prominence. This procedure creates fuller and more distinct-looking lips. Dr. David Shamouelian, our highly-skilled facial plastic surgeon, has perfected the art of lip lift procedure to ensure appealing and natural-looking results.

How Lip Lift Works
Lip lift procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia. It takes about an hour to complete. During the procedure, Dr. Shamouelian creates an incision along the base of the nose. A small area of the skin will then be removed in order to lift the lip upward and to increase the extent of the visible pink in the upper lip. After detailed and patient specific adjustments, the incision is meticulously closed with sutures, which will are typically removed after about a week.
