What Is a Lip Lift?
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.
"I could not have picked a better plastic surgeon! Found out I had a rare tumor growing on my cheekbone, which left an indentation or “dimple” and needed surgery. Dr. K got rid of all of it and I came out amazed! Since the surgery, Dr. K performed a fat transfer and my cheek might look better than before! 🤣 Dr. K and his team work absolute MAGIC and I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone in the office makes you feel so welcomed and cared for. You will be in the best of hands!!"- M.V. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"I went to see Dr. Kowalczyk about 7 months ago to fix my broken nose from a bad fall. My septum was significantly deviated and I had major breathing troubles and headaches. Functionality was my main focus. Dr. Kowalczyk fixed my septum and it ended up straightening my crooked nose a ton. No more breathing issues or headaches, plus a straighter nose. Triple win."- P.N. / Google / Jul 01, 2021
"I had been interested in getting botox/dysport for a few years before I finally saw Dr. Kowalczyk to get them done. I did not know much about injections and felt really nervous to have them done since I felt very pressured by other clinics when I had mentioned my interests in the past and was always scared of having a "frozen" look. When I visited with Dr. K, he explained how the products worked, what would be best for me, and did not pressure me to make any certain decision. I chose to get Dysport to help with my stubborn forehead wrinkles. The injections were easy and painless! Three days later I saw amazing results. Dr. K promised I would have a natural and seamless result which is exactly what I got! I look more refreshed and I couldn't be happier with my results. I will definitely be coming back to this office to see Dr. K for my injections!"- A.Z. / Google / May 21, 2021
"Dr. Kowalczyk and his team are the best at what they do! I came into the office with a deviated septum issue and wanting to change the look of my nose. He fixed my broken septum and gave me the nose I’ve dreamed of. On top of fixing my nose he also made sure I was being taken care with my asthma/allergy issues. Would highly recommend this facility for rhinoplasty surgery. Very kind office staff they make you feel at home!"- L.B. / Google / May 18, 2021
"I spent a long time obsessing about a droopy eye lid and what options I had to correct it. I had a consultation with Dr. Imola and discussed the option of an upper blepharoplasty. While a bit anxious about the procedure, I felt confident in Dr. Imola and scheduled the appointment. The procedure took place in the office and was completely painless. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Imola to do this procedure. I am very happy with the result and highly recommend Dr. Imola and Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery. Lisa Adams is a huge asset to CFPS. She is welcoming, kind and easy to talk to. I am grateful for the generosity she showed me on the day of the procedure and always enjoy catching up with her when I am in the office."- K.(. / Google / May 01, 2021
How Does a Lip Lift Work?
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.
