SCIENCEHow do we do a lip lift?
ARTWhat is the final result of a lip lift?
A lip lift is a surgical technique used to correct drooping or elongated lips.
The surgery can be performed using several different techniques, but all involve cutting and repositioning the tissues of the upper lip.
How do we do a Lip Lift ?
Patients can typically have a lip lift performed and go home the same day.
Patients can have the procedure under local anaesthetic & sedation or can be asleep with a general anaesthetic.

The skin is removed and the scar is hidden in the natural crease around the nostrils and base of the nose.
What kind of patients would benefit from a Lip Lift?
A lip lift is likely to benefit those with previously fuller lips that have thinned with time with little of the “red” surface of the lip visible.
This may be for a number of reasons most commonly, age-related.
As patients get older, the area on the upper lip including the skin and muscle may begin to elongate due to gravity, resulting in a gradual decrease in the volume of the upper lip, that then looks thinner.
Those who wear lipstick may notice that less can be applied and so contributes to an aged look.
The signs of ageing include the various structures around the face drooping, so once a youthful face with the inverted triangular shape with most mass around the cheeks, shifts to the triangular structure with more emphasis at the bottom of the face, near the jawline.
One of the most effective ways of demonstrating this is to compare photos of the patient in their early 20’s to the present.
What do we do before a Lip Lift?
When patients come into the clinic, our UK-trained plastic surgeon makes a full assessment of the patient.
This includes any relevant history, including reasons for surgery and a thorough examination of the nose and the upper lip itself.
Part of this process is explaining to the patients what can be done, why, and what to expect, based on each patients’ anatomy and suitability for surgery for a lip lift.
What do patients see after a Lip Lift?
Patients are put into a “We see you in one week after surgery” to check on the patients and remove any visible stitches.
The swelling starts to come down gradually from 48 hours after surgery and within a few weeks patients feel brighter and fresher.
Once safe, patients are let out of the clinic with close follow up arranged to ensure improvements would happen as anticipated.
What are the alternatives to a Lip Lift?
One alternative to a surgical lip lift is the use of fillers which may be either synthetic which is temporary or use of natural ones such as fat.
This can provide a method to deal with the lost volume but does not adequately address the increased distance between the base of the nose and lip.
