Lip Lift

These days, it may seem like the only path to a gorgeous, plump pout is through injectable fillers, which are an amazing, but temporary, solution. A lip lift is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that delivers the same benefits as lip injections, with a few added benefits.

For one, it is the only permanent way to achieve permanently juicy lips. And it also contours and elevates the position of the upper lip to create a crisp, perfectly contoured cupid’s bow. The procedure is short, straightforward, requires minimal downtime, and best of all, it eliminates the need to go back for lip injections every few months.

Why Consider A Lip Lift?

If you’ve been considering lip injections but hate the idea of going back for refills twice a year, a lip lift surgery may be just what you are looking for. A lip lift shortens the space between the bottom of your nose and the top of your lip, an area known as the philtrum.

When you have a long philtrum distance, lip injections will likely end up doing more harm than good. Why? Because there’s only a limited amount of vertical lifting you can get with fillers. Trying to correct a longer philtrum distance with injections will often lead to an asymmetrical and uneven upper lip — aka “duck lips.” And with time, fillers can weigh down the lips, making the nose-to-lip distance appear even longer.

While everyone has different beauty standards, in plastic surgery, the aesthetic “ideal” is that the lips show a little bit of tooth when your lips are slightly parted. A lip lift can help you achieve this balance and address philtrum length without looking overdone or exaggerated.

Am I A Good Candidate For A Lip Lift?

Ideal candidates for lip lift surgery in Miami are non-smoking adults in good physical health who are bothered by any of the following concerns:

  • A long space between the nose and top lip (philtrum)
  • Thin lips
  • Asymmetrical or poorly defined cupid’s bow
  • Unbalanced lips
  • Had other rejuvenating surgeries and want their lips to be in balance with the rest of their face

Designing Your Ideal Pout

At Dr. Patty Miami, lip lift surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia and sedation in less than an hour.

Prior to your surgery, you will meet with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon for a private evaluation. At this appointment, your surgeon will analyze your facial features and discuss your procedure goals to determine the best course of action for your enhancement. This consultation is an excellent time to show your surgeon any photos that reflect your ideal lip aesthetic and ask questions about the procedure.

Lip lift surgery in Miami is an entirely customizable operation adapted to your unique preferences and anatomy. During surgery, your surgeon will use different techniques and strategies to elevate your upper lip to a perkier, sexier position. In most cases, the procedure consists of making a thin, bullhorn-shaped incision along the base of the nose to remove extra skin and gently pull the lip upwards, creating a fuller and juicer appearance.

Corner Lip Lift

As the skin ages, the corner of the lips may start to droop into a frown. In these cases, a corner lip lift, also called oral commissuroplasty, is recommended. This subtle procedure, which can be performed with or without a vertical lip lift, involves making two tiny incisions at each corner of the mouth to correct the frowny appearance.

As Seen On


Recovering From A Lip Lift

Like other surgical procedures, you will need to take a week or two off work and social activities to recover from your lip lifting surgery. You can expect some mild swelling and discomfort in the lip area, which can be managed with cold compresses and pain medication, if necessary.

Your stitches will remain in place for about a week. Once your surgeon removes them, your scar will begin to heal and fade within a year. When performed by a skilled and meticulous surgeon, like the cosmetic team at Dr. Patty Miami, lip lift scars will be inconspicuously hidden below the nose, making them virtually undetectable from any angle.

Combining Lip Lift Surgery With Other Procedures

Unlike injectable fillers, which only add volume, a lip lift refines and rejuvenates your entire lower face. Many patients choose to combine their lip lifting surgery with other facial procedures for a comprehensive makeover, like:

  • [Facelift]
  • [Brow lift]
  • [Rhinoplasty]

And noninvasive enhancements such as:

  • [Lifting threads]
  • [Botox]
  • [Sculptra]
  • [Microdermabrasion]

Or, if you want perfect teeth to match those sexy lips, hop on over to our high-end [cosmetic dentistry] boutique and explore our curated menu of dental procedures, including [porcelain veneers], [Invisalign], [professional teeth whitening], and more.


Lip Lift FAQs

Is A Lip Lift Permanent?

Yes! A lip lift surgery will make your lips look fuller and more pronounced by enhancing the vermillion border — the pink edges where the skin meets the lips, but it won’t add extra volume. If your lips are particularly thin or you want a plumper pout, your surgeon can complement your lip lift with [injectable fillers]

Can I Get Lip Fillers After A Lip Lift?

A lip lift won’t correct a gummy smile; if anything, it can make it more prominent. At Dr. Patty Miami, we offer a range of minimally invasive dental and cosmetic procedures to correct a gummy smile, including [gum rejuvenation] and [Botox injections].

Will A Lip Lift Correct A Gummy Smile?

A lip lift can cost anywhere from $3,500 to $9,000 depending on your geographical location, the extent of the correction, and additional fees such as anesthesia and lab work. At Dr. Patty Miami, your surgical coordinator will provide you with a detailed, custom quote based on what was discussed during your initial consultation.
