WHAT CAN A LIP LIFT ACHIEVE?
There are no lip fillers or implants used during a lip lift, so the final results are much more natural looking
The area around your mouth can seem completely rejuvenated
As the upper lip is elevated, it can make your lip seem fuller without the need for any injections, and overall the procedure creates a youthful smile
WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES TO A LIP LIFT
Lip fillers can act as an alternative to a lip lift, although lip fillers offer slightly different results. Lip fillers are a good option if you would like to lift the lips, not to raise them or remove unwanted skin tissues.
BEFORE YOUR LIP LIFT
Clear communication between yourself and your cosmetic surgery team are vital for a relaxed and comfortable surgery experience. You need to feel sure about safety well before your surgery.
Dr Cotrufo always invites his patients for at least two consultations before any surgical procedure to make sure everything is clear. The targets are agreed in writing and patients are fully aware of the possible risks and complications associated with lip surgery.
DURING YOUR CONSULTATION, YOU WILL:
Be able to discuss your circumstances
Be given time to ask advice and pose questions to Dr Cotrufo
Undergo a health evaluation
Have a full assessment of your face and lip area
Discuss the options that are open to you, including costs and timescales
Ask about risks, benefits and alternatives to lip lift
Learn more about the lip lift procedure
In the run-up to your procedure and in the days immediately before surgery, you may be asked to make small changes to your lifestyle and to avoid certain medications or activities.
This may include:
Refraining from drinking alcohol
Adjusting or taking certain medications
Avoiding aspirin, herbal supplements and anti-inflammatory drugs
Avoiding overexposure in the sun, particularly to the abdomen
Committing not to make stringent dietary changes
If you need a general anaesthetic for your procedure you will be given instructions on how to fast before your surgery.
THE LIP LIFT PROCEDURE:
A strip of skin above the lips and below the nose is removed and reshaped. This alters the look of your smile overall, narrowing the gap between your nose and your upper lip.
AFTER YOUR LIP LIFT PROCEDURE:
You will be able to leave the clinic straight after your procedure, though you may notice some swelling and bruising.
