Lip Lift in Winnipeg, at First Glance

What is a Lip Lift?

Full luscious lips and a beautifully shaped mouth is a sign of vitality and youth.

Unfortunately, as we age, our lips lose volume, and the supporting skin directly above our upper lip loses elasticity and begins to sag.

When the upper lip is sagging lower than it should, it can look thin, deflated, and out of place. Fine lines can develop, and the corners of your mouth can become turned down, resulting in an angry or sad expression when your face is at rest— adding years to your appearance.

A Lip Lift improves the overall shape and look of the lips. It makes the lips appear fuller, youthful, reduces wrinkles and lines around the mouth, and gives the entire face a more youthful look.

The corners of your mouth can also be lifted to create a beautifully shaped mouth and revitalized appearance.

Key Benefits of Lip Lift Surgery

  • Fuller, More Shapely Lips: One of the main benefits of a Lip Lift is that it can give the lips a fuller and more shapely appearance. By removing excess skin and tissue from the upper portion of the lip, the lip can appear fuller and more pronounced. This can also have a positive effect on the overall shape of the face, as it can create a more youthful appearance.
  • Improved Self-Confidence: Having fuller and better-shaped lips can do wonders for self-confidence. Many people feel self-conscious about the size and shape of their lips, and this can lead to feelings of insecurity. A Lip Lift can help you feel more confident and happy with your appearance.
  • Reduced Wrinkles and Lines: One of the telltale signs of aging is the development of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. A Lip Lift can help reduce the appearance of these signs of aging by removing excess skin and tissue from the area. This can help create a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.
  • Improved Facial Contours: A Lip Lift can also help improve the overall facial contours. This is because it can help reduce excess skin and tissue in the area, giving the face a more balanced and symmetrical appearance.
  • Reduced Recovery Time: Many people are concerned about the length of time it takes to recover from a procedure like a Lip Lift. However, the recovery time is typically much shorter than other cosmetic procedures. Most people can recover within a matter of days or weeks, depending on the procedure performed.

Proper Candidates for Upper Lip Lift Surgery

While a younger patient who wants fuller lips can be a good candidate, this procedure is often performed on older patients interested in facial rejuvenation.

How Is Lip Lift Surgery Performed?

A tiny incision is created at the base of your nose and a small strip of skin is removed to lift your upper lip. Lip Lift Surgery typically takes 1 hour to perform under local anesthesia.

Your upper lip may feel a little stiff for about 1 month after surgery. Throughout recovery, your upper lip will begin to soften, and your beautiful results will be revealed.

Lip Lift Surgery is often performed with other non-surgical treatments, including Botox and injectable Filler treatments, including Lip FillerUnder Eye FillerJaw ContouringChin FillerTop Model CheekbonesNon Surgical Rhinoplasty, Belkyra Double Chin Fat Removal, and Skin Boosters.


Choosing Your Surgeon

When considering a surgeon, it’s important to research all of your options and choose a Surgical specialist who is Board Certified in both Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. While many plastic surgeons perform many different types of surgeries, you should select a surgeon who focuses strictly on a specific procedure and is recognized for excellence in this procedure.

What are the benefits if your surgeon has a reconstructive surgery background? Most of the world’s best aesthetic surgeons began with reconstructive practices. In fact, almost all of the groundbreaking techniques in aesthetic surgery have reconstructive origins.

Reconstructive surgery cases are typically more complex and often require highly specialized surgical techniques. Comfort, confidence, and predictability with advanced reconstructive surgery techniques have become powerful tools often adapted to aesthetic procedures.

All of the Plastic Surgeons at The First Glance are Board Certified Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeons. Many of our surgeons are also Double Board Certified.
