Lips that were once full and pouty can thin and elongate with age. If this is the case for you, a lip lift in Beverly Hills can help solve this problem.

This is a fairly minor surgical procedure which can restore a more youthful appearance to the upper lip. The procedure is generally performed to shorten the length of a long upper lip.

A lip lift may also add a slight pout or cupid’s bow to the central lip as well as an overall appearance of greater fullness. It is possible the surgery can also enable more of the pink portion of the lip, or vermilion, to show and make the upper teeth more visible when the lips are slightly parted.

Am I A Good Candidate?

Dr. Stevens recommends a lip lift procedure for individuals in good physical health with realistic goals for improving a long or thin upper lip. The lip lift can be a good alternative to lip fillers for those seeking permanent improvement of thin lips.


What to expect after surgery

After surgery, patients may experience some degree of swelling and numbness. There is minimal pain associated with the lip lift, though pain medication can help to control any discomfort that occurs. Chewing and speaking may also be difficult at first. A return to work and light activity can typically be expected within a few days to a week after the lip lift procedure.
