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
"Dr. Kaplan changed my life. He is a doctor who cares and is compassionate! He is not only a MD he is an artist. He had done liposuction to my abdomen, back and flanks. He is great, the staff is super friendly and accommodating- I would give 10 stars if I could! This was new to me and everyone was so helpful! I also had my lips plumped by Nurse Christina- great work - doctor Kaplan and staff are the best!"- M.B. / Google / Jul 30, 2021
"Dr Kaplan and his staff are amazing! I travel an hour and a half from south Jersey to see him and it is well worth the drive! They are friendly, helpful, and always make me feel comfortable and I walk out feeling better than when I arrived. Dr Kaplan is more than a Dr. He is an artist and he takes his time to make sure every detail and angle and the overall look of my face is improved with the injectable procedures I have had including facial and nasolabial enhancements. I am planning to move out of state soon and will definitely plan to travel even further to see him again if needed in the future!"- L.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
