Do you want to have many fullers and more aesthetic lips? There is a risk of increasing the distance between the nose and the red lip and narrowing the upper lip as the age progresses and in those with a genetic predisposition. Here, a lip lift can be a good solution.
Lip lift shortens the skin between the nose and red lip by removing the skin in a mustache-like pattern. This way, the lipstick will look clearer and add more volume to the lips. If the book is your highest priority, applying fat grafts to the lips with a lip lift is possible. The wound will lie just on the side of the nose and follow it so that it is almost invisible after the healing period.
The lip lift is an aesthetic surgical procedure in which the upper lip is pulled up and removed from the teeth. This is achieved by making a small incision above the upper lip and removing a strip of skin and tissue. The incision may be on the upper lip or just below the nose. The lip will look fuller when it heals because the underside will show more.
This procedure is often sought after by women with a thin upper lip. It is also usually done in women whose upper lip is much longer than the lower lip to obtain a balanced appearance. Another common cause of lip lift is age. Facial bones shrink as we age, causing the skin to sag more loosely. In addition, the fat and soft tissue on the face will begin to lose their elasticity and loosen the skin. This can cause the upper lip’s cinnabar red or pink part to be almost invisible. Drooping lips can also prevent teeth from being seen when smiling.
A lip lift also works to correct what’s known as the cupid’s bow, the V-shaped area in the middle of the upper lip. This usually becomes more superficial as the face ages. Lip lift attempts to restore its original depth and, therefore, a younger-looking mouth. This operation is also used to lift the corners of the mouth to eliminate the downward smile that may be characteristic of aging.
The lip lift in Turkey differs from lip augmentation, where a cosmetic filler such as collagen injects to make the lips appear fuller. After a while, after lip augmentation, it will wear off, and the lips will begin to thin or droop again. However, a surgical lip lift is a permanent procedure and can shorten the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose.
Recovery after lip lift surgery in Turkey is typically quick, and there is swelling for the first few days only. You can start make-up and other facial care products again one day after the operation. Complications of this surgery are usually minor but may include separation of the incision or scar that will detract from the intended appearance.
What is Lip Lift?
The lip lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure in which the upper lip is pulled upwards and removed from the teeth. This is achieved by making a small incision above the upper lip and removing a strip of skin and tissue. The incision may be on the upper lip or just below the nose. When it heals, the lip will appear fuller as more of the underside will be visible. The lip lift is a minor surgery aimed at the definitive improvement of the lips. It reduces the distance between the vermilion and the nose to give the lips a fuller appearance.
Women with thin upper lips generally request this procedure. It is also widely used in women whose upper lip is much longer than their lower lip to achieve a balanced appearance.
Who are Ideal Candidates for Lip Lift?
Ideal candidates for lip lift in Turkey are healthy men and women who want to make their lips look aesthetic and beautiful. In addition, if you have regular fillings and your lips look bigger, a lip lift is a suitable surgery for you. It is a permanent solution, especially for thin upper lips.
Lip lift surgery in Turkey gives positive results for those looking for a permanent solution to the growth of the upper lip and those who want to shorten the distance between the lip and the nose.
Lip lift surgery, which allows you to permanently have lips that look like angel wings, is also preferred by women who like to look attractive. With lip lift aesthetics, you always have permanent lips, voluminous and complete, without the need for filling and renewing at regular intervals. During the upper lip lift operation, a cheerful, happy, and energetic facial expression is obtained as the lip corners lift more clearly and the teeth become more prominent.
However, a lip lift is unsuitable for everyone, like any plastic surgery. It is especially ideal for those with an abundance of the upper lip (i.e., the skin between the vermilion and the nose). The anatomical feature tends to make the lips look thinner than they’re. It is a physiognomic connotation that worsens over the years. As you get older, the tension in the lips gets longer, and the lips get thinner. Therefore, instead of hiding at a mature age, you can intervene when younger. The lip lift technique recommends in the following cases:
- Lowering the commissures, i.e., with the corners of the upper lips facing down
- Puppet wrinkles, i.e., deep grooves in the lower corners of the lips
- Less voluminous and soft lips
- Gingival smile (full denture smile)
- Fine lines and wrinkles in the contours as well as on the lips
- Irregular lips
- Indistinct contour of the lips and cupid’s bow
- Lips are full
- Post-traumatic or post-operative scarring effects
- Desire for a permanent intervention, more permanent, absorbable than hyaluronic acid injections (and also just creating volume without shortening a very long lip)
- Lips become very thin, inverted, flat, and drooping with age
- An excessively long upper lip hides teeth
- Unbalanced appearance between a fragile and long upper lip and a better curved lower lip
- A flat upper lip that is naturally very thin or almost invisible, where the filling doesn’t improve and creates a rugged appearance in the mouth
What Happens at the Lip Lift Consultation?
During the preliminary examination, our plastic surgeon examines you, and together you plan the best solution for you. Before the initial assessment, we recommend reading this page about lip lift from beginning to end and writing it down on paper so that you don’t forget to ask your questions.
In the preliminary examination, the surgeon will inform you in detail about the procedure to perform, the expected course after the process, and the possible side effects and complications of the lip lift procedure.
When you come to the consultation, you first talk to your specialist about why you’re there and the problems on your lips. The specialist must understand your daily life and needs. Thus, the surgeon will do the lip lift procedure in the best way for you.
What are the Risks of Lip Lift?
As with any surgery, lip lift also includes risks, but these are very limited. An extensive technique is required to hide scars under the nose. We recommend being careful if you have active herpes, and you may need to use antiviral medication during surgery to treat herpes. Complications from lip lift surgery are rare, including:
- Edema (swelling) of the surgical site disappears within a few days.
- Sporadic surgical site infections.
- Unsightly scar result requiring surgical revision.
- Imperfect labial results requiring retouching.
- Permanent lip changes.
- Possible bleeding or hematoma at the surgical site. Bleeding requiring surgical lip lift treatment is rare and mainly occurs before discharge. However, there may be bruises in the operated area after lip lift surgery. This doesn’t affect the result of the lip lift.
- Decreased tactile sensation in the upper lip.
- Stinging and burning sensation after lip lift.
- In rare cases, if scars don’t heal satisfactorily after lip lift surgery, the surgeon can correct scarring after 3-6 months.
- Asymmetry in lip shape. This is mainly what you will see if you already have an asymmetry before lip lift surgery.
- In less than 1% of surgeries, a lip lift can complicate by infection, which treats with tablets.
How will You Prepare for the Lip Lift Procedure?
During the preliminary examination, our plastic surgeon examines your health information. If you’re taking blood thinners, you should take a break for four weeks before and after the lip lift operation. This may be a medicine containing acetylsalicylic acids, such as aspirin. You should also not consume ginseng, fish oil, and vitamin E products. It’s also important to note if you’re allergic to certain drugs, patches, or food.
It is also important to tell your plastic surgeon if you have had scars, similar problems, or other diseases or conditions. On the day of lip lift surgery, it is crucial to thoroughly soap your face and hair and take a shower because of the risk of infection.
We strongly recommend you stop smoking six weeks before and four weeks after your lip lift procedure. If you also smoke, the risk of lung problems, decreased wound healing and post-operative infection is much higher. If you start smoking again, it recommends no later than four weeks after your lip lift for wound healing and the best possible result.
You should also limit your alcohol intake in conjunction with your lip lift. Excess alcohol intake increases the risk of complications such as infection, intraoperative bleeding, and poor wound healing during and after surgery. Therefore, in this case, we recommend you stop drinking alcohol four weeks before your lip lift procedure to reduce the risk of this complication.
1-2 weeks before the operation, the patient should stop taking drugs such as aspirin and aspro. Consult the operator about the long-term use and discontinuation of drugs that affect blood coagulation. During this process, you should not catch any viral or other disease or be in recovery.
What are the procedure of Lip Lift?
We’re very successful in the lip lift procedure in Turkey. The results are exactly what patients want. After this procedure, your self-confidence will increase, and you will have a very aesthetic appearance. Follow for step-by-step lip lift procedure in Turkey:
The operation performs under general anesthesia. Thus, you will not feel any discomfort, pain, or ache in any way. Our specialist will explain to you what will happen during the procedure. Thus, you can feel extremely comfortable about this situation.
The specialist will make the incision for the procedure in this step. Your scar will lie on the edge below the nose or the mucous membrane inside the upper lip. There must be no sun on the mark in the first year, so we recommend using an SPF 50-day cream. A silicone patch on the scar can also be advantageous for the first three months. The surgeon will hide the scar on the inside of the upper lip.
During lip lift surgery, the doctor removes excess skin from the upper lip area and shortens the vertical length. In lip lift surgery, the surgeon makes an incision from the site where the upper lip meets the nose, that is, under the nose. After this incision, the specialist cuts off the excess skin. Thus, the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose shorten, and the surgeon moves your upper lip upwards.
After lip lift surgery, the upper lip will naturally appear higher. It is a permanent aesthetic operation for thin upper lips. The scars aren’t visible in this process as the sutures make under the nose. Lip lift surgery provides a dynamic effect on the lips by lifting the lips to two-thirds of the upper teeth.
The specialist sutures invisibly as the last and completes the procedure. Lip lift surgery performs between 45 minutes and 2 hours. It has emerged as an alternative to temporary fillings, which are repeated every six months and are much more preferred permanently. If we compare it with lip augmentation, you will get a more natural and pure appearance and a younger facial expression with a lip lift.
How is the Recovery After Lip Lift?
We recommend that you not underestimate the recovery phase after lip lift in Turkey. We recommend consuming cold liquids on the first day to reduce the risk of bleeding. This also reduces swelling of the environment and yellow-blue discoloration.
The anesthetic substance loses its effect within 2-6 hours. After that, you can take painkillers daily with your doctor’s recommendation. You can shower after 24 hours, but you should leave the patches on and dry them off. Preferably sleep with a raised headboard.
Edema (swelling) and ecchymosis (bruising) on the lip are common after this surgery. They disappear pretty quickly, within a week of your surgery. Don’t worry; this is normal and will return to normal; it will not affect the final result. After the lip lift, the rules and precautions are mandatory to keep the scar as hidden as possible:
- Daily care of the scar, removing the crusts well.
- Shower daily, including your scar, with your usual soap and shampoo.
- Don’t swim in the swimming pool and sea for one month.
- Quit smoking for at least one month after the procedure.
- Be sure to use sunscreen creams to protect yourself from the sun for one year.
- From three weeks onwards, do exercises on your own, and you can even massage your scar daily with physiotherapy.
- The doctor will allow your scar to camouflage with make-up after 15-20 days.
When will You See Lip Lift Results?
You can see the lip lift results in Turkey in a short time. The final result is obtained three months after the operation.
You will get the last appearance of the traces in one year. Our surgeon will place the scars well inside your nostrils for an aesthetic appearance. Thus, the paths are in no way obvious. The risk is that the fault can be pulled down and predicted. Therefore, our surgeon will hide them well in the nostrils while simultaneously suturing the skin and the orbicularis muscle in several planes.
Swelling is a normal part of healing and usually goes away within the first 1-2 weeks. The final result of the lip lift will be a few months after the procedure.
The lip lift effect is an immediate impressive rejuvenation and a clear improvement of the smile with optimum exposure of the upper arch teeth. The surgical technique allows the vermilion to turn outward, making the entire face more harmonious and rejuvenated. In Turkey, a lip lift is usually performed together with other facial aesthetic surgeries.
What are the Lip Lift Advantages?
Follow for lip lift advantages in Turkey:
- Lip lift provides permanently fuller lips without hyaluronic acid injections.
- It is a relatively easy plastic surgery procedure performed under general anesthesia.
- Because the procedure lifts rather than adds volume, a lip lift will not give you the duck lip look that can sometimes occur with hyaluronic acid injections.
- It makes your mouth appear more proportional (compared to the rest of your face), improves the shape of your lips, and can reveal more of your upper teeth, creating a younger appearance.
How Much is Lip Lift?
Lip lift costs in Turkey are very affordable and cheap compared to many countries. Lip lift prices in Turkey vary according to the surgeon’s experience, materials, techniques, and many other factors.
The lip lift is an aesthetic lip surgery aimed at shortening the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose to improve the harmony of the face. This operation can help the patient gain self-confidence, whether in business life or the private environment. Candidates for this type of facelift often talk about an almost non-existent upper lip, which makes them look sad. The lack of curves and excessive length of the upper lips can also contrast strongly with a pronounced philtrum or naturally full lower lips.
The lip lift combines with another facial rejuvenation surgery. It can improve the appearance of the lips in drooping corners. It will then complement the section slimming action of the DAO muscles (oral angle suppressor). This facelift can also be done after rhinoplasty if, after correcting the nose, the lower lip appears disproportionately long.
