Love Your Youthful and Beautiful Lips

One of the procedures that Dr. Karam has been most excited about lately is the lip lift. The lip lift is a procedure that addresses the overall lengthening of the upper lip which can happen either as a result of aging in some cases genetics. This results in an upper lip that shows more white lip than red lip. Also, the teeth begin to become more covered by the upper lips. This results in fewer upper teeth showing when you smile.

The lip lift is often performed as part of the comprehensive Vertical Restore procedure. Alongside a variety of other facial rejuvenation techniques, the lip lift goes quite a long way towards restoring your youthful look. To learn more about how the lip lift and Vertical Restore procedures can help you turn back the clock, simply reach out and set up your consultation with a member of our team today.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Lip Lift?

During your consultation, Dr. Karam will obtain a thorough understanding of your personal cosmetic goals and the aesthetic aspirations that brought you through his doors. He’ll guide you through the various treatment options that are available to you and will help you land on the procedure that is truly right for you. The ideal candidates are often those who:

Understanding the Procedure

The goal of the lip lift is to rejuvenate and refresh your facial appearance, restoring a fresh, vital look, rather than altering it. Our lip lift is performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation at our San Diego outpatient facility. With this technique, patients are comfortable and moderately sedated. Most patients choose this method to avoid any of the risks associated with general anesthesia.

At Carmel Valley Facial Plastic Surgery in San Diego, our medical center comes with all the same advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment as any local hospital but offers greater convenience, privacy, and personalized attention. Every patient is a top priority with us, and our caring, experienced team will be fully devoted to your surgical success. To learn more, reach out and set up your consultation.

Your Incredible Lip Lift Results

A relatively simple procedure like this can have a major impact on the youthful look of the face as well as its beauty.

People have mentioned over the years how they notice their upper lip getting longer with time, however, not until recently when the surgical techniques to correct this has evolved to a point where the lip can be shortened, and essentially no visible scar is left behind. This was the tipping point for me.

The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia in the clinic or with IV sedation in the operating room. Recovery takes one to two weeks for the stitches and redness to subside as well as most of the swelling. Results are permanent.

Most clients take a week off and they are ready to return to their normally scheduled activities. All swelling should subside within six weeks, but you will be able to start enjoying your results within a few days of your procedure.
