Elevate Your Smile with a Lip Lift in NJ

As we age, our lips naturally lose volume and definition, and the distance between the upper lip and the nose can lengthen, often leading to a less youthful appearance. For some, the length of this space can be naturally longer than we wish. A lip lift by Dr. Aydin not only increases the amount of visible pink lip but also raises the position of the lip to create a more pronounced and attractive Cupid's bow, giving you a fresher, more vibrant look.

What Is a Lip Lift?

A lip lift surgically shortens the space between the base of the nose and the top of the upper lip, known as the philtrum. This lift enhances the overall appearance of the lips by increasing their visibility and definition. Unlike lip fillers, which add volume without adjusting the lip’s position, a lip lift adjusts the position of the lip, enhancing the cupid’s bow and often exposing more of the pink part of the lip. This surgery can help balance facial features and reduce signs of aging around the mouth.

Are You a Candidate for a Lip Lift?

Candidates for a lip lift are ideally those looking for a longer-lasting enhancement to the aesthetics of their lips without the ongoing need for fillers. Candidates should be in good health and non-smokers who have a long philtrum (the area between the nose and the upper lip) or wish to restore balance to their facial features.

What to Expect During the Procedure

During the lip lift procedure, Dr. Aydin makes a small incision hidden beneath the nose, where it is least noticeable. He then removes a strip of skin and lifts the lip to its new position, subtly enhancing its shape and height to better expose the dental show. Typically performed using local anesthesia, the procedure can be completed within an hour.

Truly the best staff. Dr. Aydin and his entire team have been warm, welcoming, extremely patient, and helpful. I have done several procedures and recommended a few friends who are all extremely happy with their results and the experience. I highly recommend Dr. Aydin for any procedure. Trust me, you will not regret it. Thanks to you and your staff, Dr. Aydin.

Lip Lift Recovery in NJ

Recovery from a lip lift is relatively quick, with most patients experiencing minimal discomfort that can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Swelling and bruising are common after surgery but generally subside within a week. Patients are advised to keep their head elevated and avoid strenuous activities while in the initial recovery phase. Stitches are usually removed after about a week, and most patients can return to their regular daily activities soon after.
