The lips are one of the most noticeable features of the face and are often an aesthetic concern for many individuals. As some patients age, the upper lip tends to drop and the space between the nose and mouth increases, changing the appearance of the smile. Others are born with thin lips or simply desire a fuller appearance for their pout. At Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery, our board-certified surgeons are highly skilled in lip lift procedures designed to enhance facial and smile aesthetics. Lip lifts reshape and deliver distinct definition to the curves and peaks of the lips to bring a more voluminous, attractive shape to the mouth. During a consultation at our Englewood, CO facility, our facial surgery experts can assess your cosmetic concerns and help you decide whether a lip lift surgery, lip implants, or lip fillers might help you meet your aesthetic goals.

Adults who have an elongated upper lip, thin lips, or whose top teeth no longer show when they speak may be excellent candidates for lip augmentation. Lip lifts may be performed under local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia and can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to complete. The procedure may be carried out in a number of ways, including:
- Lip lift surgery removes a thin portion of the skin between the lip and nose and pulls the skin upward to reposition the upper lip.
- Lip implants may be surgically inserted into the upper and lower lips to enhance volume and shape.
- Fat transfers are minimally invasive procedures that use unwanted fat in the face or neck to plump and volumize the lips.
- Lip fillers are nonsurgical cosmetic injections that use hyaluronic acid or other substances to increase the volume and fullness of the lips.
By augmenting the lips through surgical or nonsurgical procedures, a lip lift at Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery can increase the fullness and shape of the mouth, framing the teeth for an attractive, more youthful smile.
