"Dr. Trott has changed my life! I found her by getting recommendations from about 4 girlfriends who had the same procedure I was going in for. All were happy with their results, so I knew she was definitely someone I wanted to meet with. As soon as I met her for my initial consultation, I knew she was the surgeon for me. She is beyond friendly and warm and I knew I would be in good hands. She really took her time with me, showing me additional photos, thoroughly explaining the procedure to me. Aside from me really liking her work, I was happy with the fact that she only performs one surgery a day so she can take her time. I had met with another surgeon who would have slotted me as his 4th surgery for the day. Her surgical team is amazing, I didn't have one complication. She came to visit me at the aftercare facility and makes herself available to her patients by cellphone. Addy, her office manager, is so friendly and helpful. I am still healing but am already so happy with the results! Everyone I know tells me how amazing I look and that the work looks so natural. I literally cannot say enough good things about Dr. Trott. She is THE BEST!!!"- S.S. / Yelp / Jan 05, 2018
"Dr. Trott is incredible! She came highly recommended from my OBGYN. If you have any questions about a procedure, book a consultation, she and her team will go over EVERYTHING and answer every single question you have (and I had a lot). I felt very confident about my surgery, what to expect before and after, and what the recovery would be like. I am so happy with my results and have never..."- L. / RealSelf / Feb 12, 2019
"I recently had a "mommy makeover" with Dr. Trott. I've always worked out hard and eaten healthy food, but as a mom of two boys, working full time, I was not happy with how my body looked. Dr. Trott performed a breast reduction with a lift as well as some liposuction around my abdominal area and back. Dr. Trott had been recommended to me by a friend who also happens to be a surgical nurse, and I trusted her recommendation and I'm so glad I did. This procedure literally changed my whole attitude and increased my confidence tremendously. I used to hide my breasts with baggy shirts and minimizer bras. I had neck and shoulder pain constantly. Those issues have completely disappeared. My husband always said he loved me and looked great all the time, but now, he says I look like I did before I had our children and he's thrilled. The only thing I'm disappointed with is that it took me so long to make this decision."- S. / Healthgrades / Jul 19, 2020

I had complete confidence in my decision from my first conversation with you. And now that I can see the results of your hard work and talent I am completely in awe and couldn't have dreamed of it being any better. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"- K.J. / Yelp / Apr 26, 2020

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.
Plan Your Procedure
Kiss Thin Lips Goodbye
Although lip surgeries are sensitive in nature, they often produce beautiful results. There's no need to worry about leaving Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS with “duck lips,” or lips that have obviously been altered. Dr. Trott performs lip procedures that yield drastic but unrefined looking outcomes that improve the overall appeal of your face. If you are considering a surgical lip procedure and believe that the time is finally right, kiss your flat lips goodbye and contact our Beverly Hills facility to schedule an appointment with Dr. Trott.
