Lip Lift

A lip lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to enhance the appearance of the lips by shortening the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Inspire Aesthetics use cutting-edge techniques to create a more youthful and balanced facial aesthetic. Contact our offices in Delray Beach and Fort Lauderdale, FL, to schedule your consultation for a personalized lip lift.

The Impact Of Lips
On Facial Features

Lips play a crucial role in defining and enhancing facial features. Their shape, size, and proportions significantly contribute to your overall facial aesthetics. Well-proportioned and balanced lips can create a harmonious and youthful appearance. Full, shapely lips are often associated with sensuality and attractiveness. Conversely, thin or asymmetrical lips can detract from facial symmetry and overall appeal. Inspire Aesthetics offers procedures like lip lifts to restore optimal facial harmony.

About Lip Lift Surgery

A lip lift enhances the appearance of the lips by shortening the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose. It is a popular choice for individuals looking to achieve a more youthful and balanced facial aesthetic. During the procedure, a small incision is made at the base of the nose, and excess skin is removed to expose more of the upper lip, resulting in a subtle lift. This creates a fuller and more youthful appearance.

Lip lifts are chosen for various reasons, including correcting naturally thin lips, reducing the signs of aging by addressing sagging or elongated lips, or improving overall facial proportions. Unlike lip fillers, which add volume, a lip lift focuses on reshaping the lips’ structure. The procedure can be tailored to meet individual preferences, ensuring natural-looking and proportionate results that enhance your facial beauty and self-confidence.

Lip Lift Treats:

  • Thin or elongated upper lips
  • Age-related lip sagging
  • Facial imbalance due to disproportionate lip-to-nose distance

Your Lip Lift Consultation

During your lip lift consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your goals and concerns with a skilled plastic surgeon. They will carefully assess your facial anatomy, lip shape, and overall health to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure. You can expect a thorough examination and a candid conversation about what to expect from the surgery, potential risks, and the recovery process.

Testimonials

Why Our Patients Love Us

Awesome office and staff! I was out of the country while coordinating surgery, and they made sure to help me navigate scheduling, planning, and testing virtually so I’d be ready for surgery! I got a lip lift and tracheal shave and they both turned out great! Very natural looking while maintaining the integrity of the lips and neck. I would definitely recommend and go to Inspire for future surgeries.
