Lip Lift In Chattanooga, TN

Lip Lift Overview

The lips are one of the most noticeable and important facial features. A lip lift creates gorgeous, voluminous lips with natural, long-lasting results. 

During this outpatient procedure, a small area of skin between your lips and nose is removed. This creates a lifted appearance and reduces the length between your nose and lips. A lip lift also:

  • Accentuates your Cupid’s bow
  • Allows for increased tooth show, leading to a beautiful smile
  • Increases the amount of lip tissue visible
  • Lifts the corners of your mouth

At Shire Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Shire customizes each lip lift procedure to his client’s facial structure and personal goals. His skill, individualized care, and stunning results have earned him the reputation of the best lift lip surgeon in Chattanooga.  

Am I A Good Candidate for a Lip Lift?

Patients choose lip lifts for many reasons. A lip lift is an excellent option for people whose lips have lost volume or height with age, have lips that are naturally thinner, or are unhappy with the overall appearance of their pout.

Both men and women can benefit from a lift lip procedure. 

An ideal candidate should:

  • Be in overall good health
  • Fully understand the lip lift procedure
  • Have realistic expectations of the expected results 

If you smoke, you must be able to quit smoking for approximately 2-4 weeks or longer after surgery to allow for optimal healing. Unlike lip filler, a lip lift is a surgical procedure that offers long-lasting results.

Frequently Asked Questions About Lip Lifts

How long does a lip lift last?

The results of a lift lip are permanent. Unlike fillers, this procedure is only needed once and permanently changes the shape and appearance of your lips. Your mouth and lip area may begin to age naturally post-procedure, and good skin care and limiting sun exposure can extend your results. 

Do lip lifts look natural?

When done by an experienced and skilled surgeon, a lip lift accentuates your natural beauty and provides very natural-looking results. Lip lifts are not a one-size-fits-all procedure, and a lip that may look beautiful on one person may not fit with the facial structure of another. Choosing a surgeon who provides personalized care is vital to ensure the best results. 

How painful is a lip lift?

During your lip lift, the surgical area will be numbed, and you will typically not feel any pain. Many patients report mild pressure and tenderness during their procedure. Mild pain and swelling are normal after a lip lift procedure and are typically managed with ice, elevation, and over-the-counter medications. 

During the healing process, your lips can feel tighter than usual. Most patients report a quick and easy recovery post-procedure and feel minimal to no pain as their surgical site heals. 

Does a lip lift change your smile?

One of the benefits of a lift lip is that more of your upper teeth are typically visible when you smile. This is called increased “tooth show, ” leading to a vibrant and beautiful smile. The corners of your lips can also be lifted, leading to a larger smile. 

If you are concerned about the shape of your smile changing with this procedure, let your surgeon know. The lip lift procedure is highly customizable, and you and your surgeon can decide on a lift lip that achieves your aesthetic goals.
