What Is a Lip Lift?

A lip lift is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the lips by reshaping and repositioning them for a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing look. During the procedure with Dr. Higdon, excess skin is removed from the area between the upper lip and the base of the nose, resulting in a more defined lip contour and a subtle increase in lip volume. This technique helps to reduce the appearance of a long upper lip, improve lip symmetry, and create a more youthful and attractive smile overall.

What to Expect The Lip Lift Procedure

A lip lift procedure at Higdon Plastic Surgery in Franklin, TN, typically begins with administering local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. Dr. Higdon then carefully makes precise incisions along the base of the nose, following predetermined markings to ensure symmetrical results. Excess skin is removed through these incisions, and the underlying muscles may be adjusted to achieve the desired lift and contouring of the upper lip. The length of the procedure can vary depending on the extent of correction needed but generally takes around one to two hours. A lip lift performed by an expert like Dr. Higdon strategically removes excess skin and tissue, allowing for the reshaping and repositioning of the upper lip to create a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Dr. Higdon's expertise in cosmetic surgery ensures meticulous attention to detail and natural-looking results tailored to your facial anatomy and cosmetic goals.
