At our state-of-the-art facility, Dr. Trott provides an array of comprehensive procedures that have been shown to boost the overall appearance. One example is the lip lift procedure, which works to transform and bring distinct definition to the curves of the lips, providing a fuller, more appealing mouth and smile. During your consultation at Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS, our experienced team will get to know you, evaluate your cosmetic goals, and help you decide if a lip lift procedure is a good fit for you.

Ideal Candidates For a Lip Lift

This aesthetic surgery includes the weakening of the upper lip, causing it to drop to help cover the gums in individuals who believe that they have a gummy smile or excessive gum show. This surgery is minimally invasive, straightforward, and normally produces positive results. This treatment can be completed in conjunction with lip augmentation or in place of one. During your consultation with Dr. Trott, please be sure to explain your unique needs and specific reservations so that the correct lip procedure can be chosen for you. At times, patients request a full lip lift procedure when they in fact simply need this gummy smile concealing procedure.

Lip Lift Surgical Technique

At this time, there are various procedures that are usually employed during a lip lift surgery, and the most common are:

Gull-wing lip lift: This approach is commonly used to improve the appeal of the vermilion, also known as the lip line, which creates the top of the Cupid’s bow. For this procedure, the skin will be carefully detached and the lips are lifted and shaped to strengthen the depth of the lip line.

Sub-nasal lip lift: During this surgery, a small piece of skin from under the nose is taken and then lifted and stitched into place below it. This sub-nasal lip lift technique helps the lips to look fuller and larger, emphasizing the Cupid's bow and increasing the volume of the vermilion.

What to Expect

Lip lift or drop surgeries are meticulous in nature but commonly provide lovely, immediate results. Depending on the surgery chosen, lip lift and drop procedures can call for general or local anesthesia and can be performed in the office within minutes or can take two hours. Along with slight discomfort, you should expect bruising and/or swelling the first couple of weeks following a lip lift or drop surgery as the lips and face are tender areas. It can take two months for the full results of a lip surgery to be completely revealed. When the bruising and swelling have gone down, you should see marked enhancement and impressive results.
