What Is A Lip Lift?

As a high-level overview, a lip lift shortens the area from the top lip to the base of the nose. The goal is to contour the upper lip so that it is balanced and better proportioned. In the majority of cases, a lip lift adds surface area to the top lip, which makes it seem as if it has had volume added. However, there is no plumping of the lip; if that is a concern, lip fillers are advised.

The key to a lip lift with great results is an experienced board-certified surgeon. Only those with in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and rigorous surgical training are able to make the meticulous and subtle changes necessary for symmetrical, harmonious lips.

Will A Lip Lift Work For Me?

The only way to know for certain if a lip lift in Austin with The Piazza Center will help you achieve your cosmetic goals is to have an in-depth consultation with one of The Piazza Center’s board-certified surgeons. During your consultation, they will listen with patience and empathy as you describe your ideal look and share your insecurities.

Next, your surgeon will conduct a thorough review of your medical history and carefully examine your face and lips. Once all the pertinent information is collected, your surgeon will assess whether a lip lift can help. If the answer is yes, they will then walk you through the procedure, answering any questions you may have. 

Typical Reasons To Pursue A Lip Lift

The seasoned surgeons at The Piazza Center see patients who request lip lifts for a variety of reasons, but the concerns below are quite commonly given:

  • Top lip is very thin, or barely visible

A Stress-Free Recovery

Dr. Piazza and his hand-selected team of medical professionals excel in the area of patient recovery, dedicating much more time to patients after their surgeries than competing practices. Driven by a relationship-based model of care, Dr. Piazza and his fellow surgeons hold each patient’s hand until healing is complete, and additionally conduct follow-ups to track outcomes and patient satisfaction. 

For most patients, a week to 10 days of rest is suggested, though some patients are comfortable resuming light desk work and non-taxing social activities after a few days. Swelling and soreness are to be expected, and subside in about a week. A soft-food diet is recommended, as is sleeping with the head elevated for the first few days after the procedure.
