About a Lip Lift
A lip lift can help improve visible signs of aging by enhancing the appearance of the upper lip. This procedure reduces the space between the bottom of your nose and the top of your lips. The lip lift is designed to shorten the upper lip, allowing patients to benefit from this surgery. Dr. Gordon Kaplan specializes in lip lift procedures for his patients at his NJ practice, The Kaplan Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
Benefits of a Lip Lift Procedure
Some of the benefits of the lip lift procedure include:
- Better lip asymmetry
- Reduction of the space between the upper lip and the nose
- A fuller, more youthful upper lip contour
- A permanent result for lip enhancement
The result of the lip lift procedure for NJ patients includes a more full, youthful shape of the mouth and lips. The overall effect of the lip lift is a more esthetically pleasing mouth with an increased youthful appearance. Because lip lifts are minimally invasive, patient satisfaction rates are high with many showing results after three weeks.
Ideal Candidate for a Lip Lift
It was once thought that a lip lift was reserved for patients over 50. With advancements in technology, today’s techniques allow lip lifts to be performed on all adults concerned with visible signs of facial aging. The ideal candidate for this procedure will show these signs specifically around the mouth area. Additional factors of an ideal candidate for lip lift at Dr. Kaplan’s NJ practice include:
- A thin upper lip
- No upper tooth show when the lips are parted
