A lip lift is designed to bring up your upper lip, enhancing your smile and making it more attractive. At Belmont Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jules Feledy and Dr. Eric Maiorino can help you maximize your natural beauty with a lip lift that's customized to your facial structure. In addition, he uses minimally invasive techniques that produce beautiful results without excessive scarring or downtime.
Lips that Command Attention
Whether you're looking to achieve a more balance upper to lower lip or lift up your upper lip to allow the teeth to be more exposed, Dr. Jules Feledy and Dr. Eric Maiorino have years of experience creating beautiful smiles in their Washington DC practice. Many of their patients are drawn to an upper-lip lift because it is an easy and minimally invasive way to enhance your smile. There will be some swelling that subsides over several weeks; however, results typically last for years and may allow you to skip fillers altogether. If you're interested in learning more about how lip lifts can change your appearance—and boost your confidence—contact our office today!
A lip lift is an ideal procedure for patients looking to enhance their smile. Because there is little to no downtime associated with it, you'll be able to return to work shortly following your procedure. Ideal candidates include healthy adults who want to look younger, have upper lip sagging from aging, or dislike their thin lips.
Minimally Invasive Intervention
Lip lifts are minimally invasive procedures that can be performed under local anesthetic in an outpatient setting. They are designed to create more definition in your upper lip by slightly repositioning and removing a small strip of skin between your upper lip and nose. Although minimal downtime is associated with a lip lift Washington DC patients may experience swelling and bruising after surgery.
Washington DC Lip Lift patients can return to their normal daily activities within a few days. We advise avoiding strenuous physical activity for two weeks to allow your lip area time to heal and soften. You may experience some swelling, redness, and bruising around your mouth during that time. Once it has healed, your new lip shape will be apparent, and you will see an instant change in how you look! If you take care of your incisions, they should fade quickly over about three months. It is essential to follow our post-operative instructions closely to ensure optimal lip lift results.
For Lovely Lips
Lip lifts are permanent because they are surgical procedures, whereas dermal fillers are only temporary. Fillers add volume to the lip to achieve bigger lips, with benefits lasting six months to a year. However, you can get more natural results from lip lifts and have them last longer. It's important to note that age will likely affect your results. Our skin loses elasticity as we age; therefore, younger patients tend to see longer-lasting results than older patients.
Elevate Your Beauty
Call our office or request an appointment online to schedule your consultation. Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will analyze your objectives and discuss which lip lift technique is best for you during your appointment. Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will also discuss the risks and complications of lip lifts, as well as the recuperation time. We encourage our patients to grasp every element of their operations before proceeding; there is no such thing as too much knowledge!
Fortunately, a lip lift is a straightforward procedure that causes little to no pain or discomfort. The only adverse effects you're likely to encounter are swelling and bruising. While pain medication is rarely required, applying antibiotic cream to the suture line hastens recovery.
There are minimal risks associated with lip lifts, primarily when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. Lip lifts' most common side effects include swelling, bruising, scarring, and redness. As your upper lip is lifted up, you will also experience some numbness in that area. It's imperative to follow your doctor's post-surgery instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and avoid any additional complications or issues with your new look.
