Although for many patients it seems something new, the upper lip lifting procedure is an increasingly sought-after intervention lately.
Basically, the procedure involves shortening the area between the upper lip and the nose and pulling it up, so that the lip gets more volume.
What is the main advantage of this procedure? The biggest advantage of the procedure is the permanent effect it provides. It is not like lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid where the result is temporary (about 9 months).
The procedure is primarily addressed to people who experience lip asymmetry – the lower lip is larger than the upper. At the same time, it is necessary that the distance between the lips and the nose be generous, allowing the procedure to be carried out safely and harmoniously.
How is the upper lip lift performed?
Upper lip lift is a surgical intervention. This consists of a small incision along the area under the nose and the removal of a small portion of skin.
The procedure, although surgical, is not painful and is performed under anesthesia for the patient’s comfort.
Another major benefit of the procedure is that although it is performed surgically through an incision, it leaves no marks or scars.
The doctor will work very gently, and the joint will be done at the base of the nose, for an optimal effect.
In the case of the upper lip lifting procedure, the results will begin to be visible in approximately 6-8 weeks after the procedure.
We have to keep in mind that we are talking about a surgical procedure, so here too, the patient will need a recovery period.
This is between 10-14 days, during which he will strictly follow the medical recommendations.
The patient must come to the post-operative consultations, according to the guidance of the Legacy Med specialists.
The rules after the upper lip lifting procedure
Clean the area carefully with physiological serum and keep the area hygienic at all times.
Use the creams and/or ointments recommended by the specialist doctor.
Avoid using patches or dressings on the incision area.
Do not expose yourself to the sauna or solarium and stop intense physical activity during the recovery period.
