Am I A Good Candidate For A Lip Lift?

This cosmetic procedure includes weakening the top lip, causing it to drop to help cover the gums in patients who believe that they have a gummy smile or excessive gum show. This procedure is minimally invasive, is not complicated, and usually presents favorable results. During an appointment with Dr. Burnett, please be sure to explain your personal needs and detailed reservations so that the preferred lip procedure is chosen. At times, patients wish for a more comprehensive procedure, when in fact they need this simple surgery.

How Is Lip Lift Surgery Performed?

There are numerous procedures that are usually employed during lip lift surgery. A gull-wing lip lift boosts the appearance of the vermilion or the lip line that makes the crests of the Cupid’s bow. For this procedure, skin tissue is carefully taken from elsewhere on the body, and the lips are lifted and reshaped to enhance the appeal of the vermilion. A sub-nasal lip lift removes a tiny piece of skin from underneath the nose in order to elevate the fullness of the lips. Based upon the procedure chosen, this may be completed in a matter of minutes or up to two hours. Along with some discomfort, you should expect bruising and swelling the first couple of weeks after a lip lift. It may take a couple of months for the final outcome of lip lift surgery to be totally revealed.

Lip Lift FAQ

Will a lip lift make me have duck lips?

No, a personalized lip lift performed by Dr. Burnett is done in such a way as to ensure that your results are natural-looking and never the exaggerated "duck lips" effect. Dr. Benett's goal is always to create subtle yet dramatic results that are in harmony with your natural facial features.

Does a lip lift cause scarring?

While a small incision will have to be made, Dr. Burnett does it in such a way that it is virtually invisible to the eye by placing it in an inconspicuous location. The majority of patients aren't even able to tell exactly where the scar is after it heals.

Should I get a lip lift or lip implants?

It depends on what your goals are. While lip implants can create dramatic effects, they can also produce the "duck lips" effect if not well paired with your facial features. That is why so many people have opted for a lip lift instead. During your consultation with Dr. Burnett, he can talk to you about the benefits and results you can expect with a lip lift and if it's right for you.

How long is recovery after a lip lift procedure?

Most patients will experience some minor level of soreness, discomfort, swelling, and bruising for about two weeks as they heal. After about eight weeks, when the swelling has gone down, and the lip has settled, the full results are usually achieved.

Kiss Thin Lips Goodbye

Although lip procedures are sensitive in nature, they can produce beautiful results. There is no need to worry about leaving John F. Burnett, MD with “duck lips,” or lips that have obviously been altered. Dr. Burnett performs lip lift procedures that yield observable, subtle outcomes that increase the overall symmetry of your face. If you are a Fresno, CA resident, and you have been considering a lip lift or lip drop procedure, say goodbye to flat lips and contact Dr. John F. Burnett to schedule an appointment.
