LIP LIFT in Rockford / Hoffman Estates / Palm Beach Gardens

Your natural lips. Beautifully enhanced.

A lip lift is designed to elevate a thin or downturned mouth. It is done under local anesthesia and subtly lifts the corners of your mouth and shortens the distance between your upper lip and the base of your nose.

If you have a permanent frown or a large space between your nose and the top of your upper lip, a subtle lift can create a more attractive and pleasant expression.

WHAT CAN A LIP LIFT DO FOR YOU?

There are two different types of lip lifts. Depending on the option you select, the procedure has the power to:

  • Create fuller looking lips
  • Shorten the distance between your nose and mouth
  • Subtly elevate the corners of your mouth

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?

Dr. Pryor can help you determine if a lip lift is in your best interest after discussing your cosmetic goals and evaluating your lips during an initial consultation. However, we generally recommend the procedure to patients who have:

  • Teeth that don’t show when smiling
  • A large space between the nose and lip
  • Downturned mouth corners
  • A permanent frown
  • Thin lips

YOUR LIP LIFT OPTIONS?

Upper Lip

The upper lip lift shortens the distance between the mouth and the base of the nose. By exposing more of the teeth and increasing the amount of pink lip that can be seen, the procedure creates a more attractive and youthful look.

Corner Lip

The corner lip lift involves subtly elevating the edges of your mouth to create a more pleasant and relaxed appearance. It is designed for patients who look as though they are permanently frowning.

THE PROCEDURE

What To Expect

Your surgical experience will vary depending on which lift you are having done. Both are performed under local anesthesia and Dr. Pryor will make sure that you are still able to move your mouth naturally after surgery. Here’s what to expect during each procedure:

Upper Lip Lift

The upper lip lift will begin with Dr. Pryor creating a small incision at the base of the nose and removing a precise amount of skin and tissue. From there, he will elevate the lip to a new, heightened position – exposing your teeth, increasing the amount of pink lip that can be seen, and restoring a beautiful shape. The entire process takes about 90 minutes to complete.

Corner Lip Lift

The corner lip lift can be done on its own or in conjunction with the upper lip lift. To perform the procedure, Dr. Pryor will remove a small wedge of tissue from each corner of your mouth. As he sutures the openings back together, he will subtly elevate the edges and create a softer and more relaxed expression.

AFTER SURGERY

How to handle the recovery

Once your lip lift is complete, you will be free to return home and begin the recovery period. Here is a quick look at what to expect as you heal:

  • Follow a soft-food diet for the first few days
  • Return to work three to four days after surgery
  • Expect swelling to persist for about two weeks and disappear within a month
