What is a Lip Lift?

An upper lip lift is a surgical procedure that involves removing a small strip of skin beneath the nose to restore a youthful and attractive lip. This lip is classically defined by a relatively short white skin portion of the upper lip and a full, everted red portion. As one age, the distance between the base of the nose and the top of the red upper lip—known as the philtrum—typically lengthens, while the red upper lip loses volume and becomes less prominent.

The most common technique for this procedure is the bullhorn lip lift. It involves making an incision shaped like a bullhorn along the curvature around the base of the nose. A small amount of skin, predetermined during the preoperative consultation, is removed. This is followed by meticulous, tension-free closure of the incision in layers. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia alone or with general anesthesia for added comfort. It may also be done in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a face or neck lift.

What Are the Benefits of a Lip Lift?

The lip lift procedure effectively provides long-lasting rejuvenation around the mouth, eliminating the need for repeated lip filler injections. Additionally, this procedure enhances the lips’ receptiveness to fillers for patients who wish to pursue further red lip augmentation in the future. Our clinic exclusively employs the bullhorn lip lift technique due to its numerous advantages over other methods. These include: 

  • A more natural appearance of the upper lip.
  • A less noticeable incision, as it is concealed beneath the nose.
  • Improved tension distribution during wound closure, promoting superior scar formation.

Who Are the Best Candidates for a Lip Lift?

The best candidates for a lip lift are typically individuals seeking to enhance the aesthetics of their mouth and lips. These potential patients often have a longer-than-average distance between the upper lip and the nose. They may also have lips that turn inward or appear thin. Some individuals opt for this procedure to address visible signs of aging around the mouth. For those seeking a gender-affirming procedure, a lip lift can impart a more feminine effect on the face. Moreover, candidates should have realistic expectations about the results, maintain good health, and understand the potential risks associated with surgery.

What’s the first step?

If you are seeking to enhance the harmony and proportions between the lower and middle thirds of your face. In that case, the initial step is to schedule a consultation with Edelstein Cosmetic in Toronto. During your initial appointment, you will learn about the procedure, discuss your goals with our experienced board-certified plastic surgeons, and comprehend the potential outcomes. Our clinic is dedicated to demonstrating the significance of a personalized approach that resonates with your aesthetic aspirations.

What to Expect on the Day of Lip Lift Surgery

Every patient’s experience is unique, and your surgeon will provide you with the most accurate and personalized information regarding your surgery day. On the day of your lip lift surgery at Edelstein Cosmetic in Toronto, you should arrive at the clinic well-rested, having followed all the pre-operative instructions provided. We will prepare you for surgery, which includes cleaning the surgical area and administering anesthesia. Local anesthesia is typically used for a lip lift, meaning you will be awake but not feel any pain. The procedure involves removing a small strip of skin under the nose to enhance the appearance of the lips. Immediately after the surgery, we will keep you comfortable until you are ready to go home. You will be discharged once the medical team determines you are stable and ready to go.

Lip Lift Recovery

Recovery from a lip lift procedure at Edelstein Cosmetic in Toronto involves a comprehensive process to ensure the best possible results. Postoperatively, you may experience some tightness and swelling in your lips. You will receive pain management instructions to alleviate any discomfort. Stitches from a lip lift are typically removed or dissolved within a week, which is a significant milestone in the healing journey. Swelling usually peaks within the first 48 hours; applying cold compresses can help reduce it. Our surgeons will recommend rest and avoidance of strenuous activities to promote a smoother recovery as you gradually return to your regular activities. Optimal results should be visible in approximately one to two weeks, although the total recovery time can vary.
