Lip Lift Operation

What is Lip Lift Operation?

Lip Lift Operation, also known as treatment for upper lip length problem, is a surgical procedure also called upper lip lift or upper lip shortening. This procedure is applied for people who are not satisfied with the length of the upper lip and think that this length distorts the facial proportions.

Lip lift operation is a surgical procedure performed to improve the aesthetic appearance of the lips and reduce the signs of aging. In this operation, various techniques are used to correct problems such as age or naturally occurring sagging, thin lips or prominent lines in the upper lip and surrounding areas.

Why is Lip Lift Operation Performed?

People usually prefer lip lift operation because the shape and fullness of the lips affect the general appearance of the face. Especially with aging, the lips become thinner, lines and wrinkles become prominent, the upper lip sags and the corners of the lips fall. These situations may cause the person to consider lip lift surgery to achieve a youthful and vibrant appearance.

Is Lip Lift Permanent?

The results of lip lift can usually be long-term, but the person's lifestyle and natural aging process can affect the results. The success of the surgery depends on a variety of factors such as the person's skin structure, age, genetic factors and sun exposure, as well as surgical techniques. With proper care and protection, the results obtained are usually permanent.

Among the things to be considered after lip lift surgery is the importance of postoperative care and following the doctor's recommendations. Swelling, bruising and mild pain are normal, especially in the first few days. Therefore, it is important to use the medications recommended by the doctor regularly and to help the healing process by resting the face. In addition, after lip lift surgery, it is necessary to be careful not to damage the lips and the surrounding area. In particular, hard foods, extremely hot or cold drinks and activities that will put pressure on the lips should be avoided.

Is Lip Lift Operation Risky?

Lip lift operation has some risks. These may include infection, bleeding, tissue loss, lip asymmetry, loss of sensation and scars. However, these complications are rare and the risks can be minimised when performed by a doctor with good surgical experience.

Are Those Who Have Lip Lift Surgery Satisfied?

Satisfaction after lip lift surgery is generally high. Since this operation is performed under local anaesthesia, there is no need for a long-term dressing and the scars become indistinct over time. Therefore, the rapid correction of the lip length problem and the absence of problems such as pain during the healing process offer satisfactory results for patients.

The most important factor affecting the success of lip lift surgery is the planning of the operation. Correct planning by an expert surgeon ensures that the patient is more satisfied with the result. For this reason, it is important for patients to have a good communication with their doctors before surgery and to express their expectations clearly.

Those who are considering lip lift surgery are usually people who experience significant sagging, thinning or wrinkles on their lips and are uncomfortable with this situation. In addition, people who are in good general health, non-smokers and have realistic expectations before surgery may also be suitable candidates.
