Technical Information


This very small surgical procedure solves all the shape defects of the upper lip in a few minutes by making a small incision in the natural fold that we all have under the nose, between the nose and the skin of the upper lip (prolabium).

Through this incision, a small portion of skin and subcutis will be removed and the upper lip can be pulled upwards, raising the edge. In doing so, the lip will become higher and more evident and its natural design can be modified by modifying the CUPID'S ARCH thus obtaining more voluptuous and fuller lips as a result. The improvement will be very noticeable not only frontally but also in profile.

The PROFILE OF THE LIPS is in fact very important and is often not taken with due consideration by non-expert operators who instead pay more attention only to the frontal aspect.

THE UPPER LIP LIFTING OR LIPLIFT ALSO IMPROVES THE PROFILE OF THE LIPS

Many patients undergo infiltration of the lips using volumizing substances called FILLERS (hyaluronic acid and more) hoping that by volumizing their lips they can also improve their shape, often obtaining very unnatural and unsightly results…
NOTHING MORE WRONG as when the lips are too thin or their shape is wrong increasing their volume will accentuate that defect rather than correct it.

IN THESE CASES YOU WILL FIRST NEED TO SUBJECT TO A LIPLIFT OPERATION TO IMPROVE THE SHAPE OF THE LIPS AND ONLY THEN CAN YOU VOLUME THEM WITH FILLERS IF NECESSARY.

OFTEN AN UPPER LIP LIFTING SURGERY IS COMPLETELY RESOLVABLE AND THE PATIENTS WILL NO LONGER NEED TO PERIODICALLY USE PIN PINS WITH FILLERS.


 

Post-operative


The lip lift is performed under local anesthesia in the surgical clinic.

The duration of this intervention is 15-20 minutes and allows an immediate return to daily life.

Small stitches are used which will be removed after 5 days.

It does not involve bruising but only slight swelling of the upper lip which will disappear within 4-5 days.

The UPPER LIP LIFTING surgery does not involve any major risk or complication. It will only be necessary to pay attention to the good healing of the surgical scar which usually becomes invisible in a few weeks

The result will be definitive.
