How is it Done?

Everyone is wondering what lip lift surgery is, which has recently started to find more space for itself on social media. Many people want to know how this surgery, which is especially mentioned in the Instagram posts of celebrities and allows them to catch a different look.

Lip lift, known as the lip-to-nose distance shortening process; It is especially preferred by women as an important aesthetic operation. If the red part, which we call the lip, is less visible, the upper lip is seen as short and the lip and nose distance is elongated. Women who are faced with this situation; They apply the lipstick overflowing from above in order to define their lips. However, it is a serious mistake to make the lip more prominent by filling the lip more than necessary. Because, according to the experts, it is not possible to get rid of the lip image we mentioned with this method.

    When Lip Lift Surgery May Be Necessary?

    Thanks to lip lift surgery, it is possible to shorten the distance between the nose and the lips. It is an operation that brings the visible part of the lip forward. In this way, there will be no need for actions such as highlighting the red part by applying lipstick or filling. In addition, lip lift; It is an extremely uneventful surgery. Just like in rhinoplasty, the incision is hidden under the nose. Thanks to the careful repair of the incision, the area in question heals in a short time.
    Another question is whether it is possible for everyone to have lip lift surgery. This surgery is definitely not applied to people who have a congenital problem in the lip structure called rabbit lip. In addition, we should say that the operation in question is risky for people who have a different mouth structure, whose lips are extremely thin, and who have had any operation in the lip area in the past years. In addition to all these, the person should know well why he wants to have this application done. Lip lift surgery may not be necessary for every problem in the lip area. With other methods, the problem on the lips can be solved.

      (Lip Lift) How Is The Healing
      Process After Lip Lift?

      There are questions about how long the healing process continues after lip lift surgery. At this point, edema or swelling may occur for a few days after lip lift surgery, as in rhinoplasty and other aesthetic operations. It should be said that the formation of edema is normal. It is a reaction of the body to surgery and stitches. Edema recovers in a few days at most.
      Lip lift surgery does not have any risks. Stitches will not need to be removed. However, in some cases, bleeding may occur. In such cases, people should talk to their doctor as soon as possible. It is recommended that lip lift surgery be performed by a plastic surgeon. In addition, the surgeon should have sufficient experience and knowledge for this operation. It is necessary to be very careful in order not to have any problems in the patient’s mouth structure and speech after the operation, especially in the comfortable speech of the patient during the operation. Another question is how much the lip lift surgery will cost. At this point, the price will change depending on where the operation is performed. However, we can easily say that it is not as high as rhinoplasty.

      How Does the Healing Process After Lip Lift Take Place?

      In lip lift surgery, facial edema can be seen during the recovery period, just like in nose surgery. This facial edema is considered normal by surgeons. The edema on the face will go away in a few days. If the surgeon has ended the operation with aesthetic stitches, there is no need to remove the stitches. Bleeding may occur at times during the healing process. If bleeding occurs from time to time, it is necessary to be examined by the surgeon without losing time. The point to be considered in the healing process is to use the drugs recommended by the surgeon and to care for the wound. At the same time, there should be no problems in the person’s speech and mouth shape during the healing process.

      Is Lip Plumping and Lip-Lift the Same?

      Lip plumping is the job of increasing the volume of the lip by injecting temporary or permanent products into the lip. However, lip-lift is the job of lifting the lip by removing the skin and subcutaneous tissue between the lips and nose. The two processes are different from each other. Lip-lift surgery can also be performed for individuals with thin lips for the purpose of thickening the upper lip. Because it turns the lip outward, the red part of the lip becomes more prominent. The purpose of filling is actually the same thing besides adding volume; to make the red part more visible by turning the lip outward. Therefore, although these processes are different , they have basically the same effect . Lip augmentation is recommended for patients who do not have an indication for lip-lift surgery, sometimes both procedures can be applied to the patient in different sessions.

      Is lip-lift surgery permanent?

      Lip-lift surgery is a permanent procedure. However, it is impossible for us to stop the skin from stretching, losing its elasticity, therefore, aging. For this reason, the lip-nose distance that we shorten will continue to lengthen a little as we age. Decrease in skin elasticity, decrease in subcutaneous tissue volume, decrease in bone volume are the reasons for this elongation.
      Genetic structure of the individual, smoking , unhealthy diet, stress and environmental conditions are effective in this process.

      How long does lip-lift surgery take?

      Lip-lift surgery takes approximately an hour. It is usually done under local anaesthesia. The procedure begins with an incision made at the base of the nose where the nose meets the skin. By calculating the white lip / red lip ratio beforehand, the skin section that needs to be removed is marked and the next step is to remove this skin together with the subcutaneous tissue. Muscle tissue is usually not removed. Bleeding control is achieved. The incision edges are stitched together with thin meltable or non-melting sutures, and the surgery is completed and dressing is started. Lip edema may occur in the first two-three days, but this is temporary. Again, there will be leaking and bleeding in the first two days, there is no need to worry. During these periods, it is recommended that the patients use antibiotics and not force the mouth too much by consuming soft food.

      When does the lip-lift heal?

      In the first few days after the lip-lift surgery, there may be swelling and bleeding in the form of leakage in the lip, this is very normal. In the firs week, the swelling is usually gone. Stitches are removed after eight-ten days. However, if your doctor has used melting stitches, there may be no suture removal. Moreover, there will be redness at the incision site for two-three months, but it will pass in the sixth month. After the lip-lift surgery, a small amount of scar tissue remains at the junction of the nose and skin in the long term, and it can be easily camouflaged with make-up.

      Can Lip-Lifting Be Combined With Face Lift Applications?

      Lip-lift surgery is often performed together with face-lift surgery. Because lip-lift surgery creates a very good rejuvenation effect on the face. Thus, in addition to the face-lift surgery we perform for facial rejuvenation, the lip-lift surgery also makes an additional contribution to this rejuvenation. With aging, the skin and subcutaneous tissues sag, eyebrows and temples fall , tissue and bone atrophy occurs , and at the same time the distance between the lips and nose becomes longer . Therefore, these patients often need a lip-lift in addition to a face-lift, and both surgeries can be performed in the same session.
