A lip lift is a procedure that spans all ages. We know that as we age, the lips begin to elongate; therefore in the past, the lip lift was performed primarily on older patients. However, lip lifts are now very popular among much younger patients as well.
Lip lift treatment details
Our lip lift in San Jose can be performed with local anesthesia, and takes about an hour to perform. The procedure raises the skin between the nose and the upper lip, causing the lips to appear more lifted.
This results in a fuller, softer, “poutier” appearance to the lips and smile. Sutures are placed along the incision line, making any scars well hidden.
