A full, youthful-looking mouth will always be in fashion. As such, lip enhancement has and always will be a top aesthetic treatment. The only variable is how to go about your lip enhancement. For years, dermal fillers have been the favorite choice for restoring lost volume, enhancing the cupid’s bow and smoothing vertical lip lines. Lip implants are another smart solution for people who prefer to avoid routine injections. But there’s a third option you may want to consider. If you’re looking for a lighter, more defined appearance with some tooth show, it may be time to explore a lip lift in Syracuse at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery.
In the last few years, lip lifts have exploded in popularity, particularly among millennials who are seeking long-term, natural looking rejuvenation. Dermal fillers are great, but if you’re interested in a result that involves less upkeep and fewer repeat visits, a lip lift may be an ideal choice for you.
What exactly is a lip lift, and how is it performed?
Here at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, our highly acclaimed plastic surgeons Dr. Gregory Baum and Dr. Anthony Deboni perform this precise yet simple surgery in our office using local anesthetic. A lip lift removes a tiny portion of skin on the upper lip to shorten the philtrum, the space between the bottom of the nose and the top of the lips. By shortening the philtrum by even a slight amount, the procedure is able to raise the edges of the upper lip (aka the vermillion border), resulting in lips that look more defined and prominent. A lip lift raises the cupid’s bow ever so slightly, helping to enhance the lips while also correcting asymmetry and smoothing lines and wrinkles. Ultimately, a lip lift is a simple procedure that can dramatically rejuvenate the entire mouth area with little to no downtime.
We also perform lip augmentation with lip implants and can help you choose the ideal treatment to meet your exact needs and aesthetic goals during your personal consultation.
