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.
"Amazing Experience with Face and Neck Lift - I wasn't happy for some time with how saggy and loose the skin on my neck was, how I didn't have a defined jawline, and how deep my smile lines were, therefore I wanted to look more relaxed and rejuvenated before my 50th birthday. After visiting a couple of other facial surgeons, I met with Dr. Kowalczyk and was amazed by his expertise and professionalism. I wanted my surgery to be before the holidays and he was able to fit me in and my surgery ended up being November 28, 2022 exactly a month before the holidays and the exact time I wanted to have it done! He made me feel comfortable and I was confident he would do a great job. I was right, all of my expectations were met and more with his work. It didn't end there, the post-operative care was amazing from his and his staff and rest of team! I felt supported throughout the whole journey. There was always someone who answered the phone, not just a machine, no matter the time of day I always had someone pick up the phone. They addressed all of my worries and questions after the surgery. Also, the checkups with Dr. Kowalczyk were frequent because he wanted to make sure everything was healing well. Even today, 6 months post op I still go to my follow ups with him because even though I feel great now and everything is healed, he still wants to see my progress and make sure everything has healed and looks great. He always enters the room with a smile and with such a positive attitude and goes above and beyond for his patients to be happy with his work. I definitely recommend Dr. Kowalczyk to anyone wanting a face/neck lift as I am so grateful and happy with my surgery and results! Sincerely, Claudia T."- C.T. / RealSelf / May 16, 2023
"Dr.Kowalczyk performed a zplasty to improve the look of my turkey neck. Everything was well explained prior to the surgery and it was a painless process. Recovery was fairly swift, and just a couple of ibuprofen for 2 or 3 days were needed. The results are great. He provided a couple of follow-up checkups. Now precisely one month after the procedure the results are.... No turkey neck, Smooth looking firm skin and a tiny, nearly invisible scar. Office staff were also great to work with and knowledgeable. My work schedule changed and they were quite helpful rescheduling a couple of appointments. Overall 5 stars and pleased with the results. Highly recommend this office for their face surgery and advice."- D.S. / Google / May 10, 2023
"I had my surgery done beginning of January 2023. My surgeon was Dr. Imola. He is a great doctor and definitely knows what he is doing. I felt very comfortable and I was pleased with my result. Nobody could tell I had a plastic surgery done, it looks very natural. I highly recommend Dr. Imola and his coordinators are also welcoming and always tried to help with everything they could help. Well deserved 5+ stars!! Thank you!"- M.M. / Google / May 10, 2023

"A gifted surgeon with an artists’ touch. I also love the office and all office personnel. I have had a couple of procedures done on my face as well as my daughter who had Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis and needed her jaw joints replaced. He worked with an oral surgeon and did an amazing job - giving her back her beautiful jaw line. Highly recommend!!!!"- E.R. / Yelp / Mar 30, 2023
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.
