What is a Lip Lift?

A lip lift, also known as a lipoplasty procedure, is an aesthetic surgical technique that can be used to improve the appearance of the lips by eliminating excess sagging tissues and reshaping them. 

A lip lift is most often performed on patients unhappy with their current lip size or shape. It may also be appropriate for individuals who desire lip augmentation or lip enhancement.

How is a Lip Lift Done?

A lip lift procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis and takes about one to two hours to complete, depending upon your unique treatment plan. Local anesthesia will be used during this surgery instead of general anesthesia.

One of the most important criteria for a successful lip lift is to get the procedure done at a reputable clinic. At Awaken Aesthetics, we have a team of leading experts in plastic and cosmetic surgery to help you achieve your desired look. 

How Long Will My Lip Lift Recovery Last?

At Awaken Aesthetics, our lip lift patients can expect to return to work within 5-7 days after surgery. You can return to your regular exercise routine 1-2 weeks after surgery.

During your lip lift recovery, you should stick with soft foods like applesauce or mashed potatoes. You shouldn’t experience any changes in speech when talking, but there may be some difficulty pronouncing certain words for a while. You don’t have to worry. Your speech difficulties will be resolved within a couple of days after your lip lift has healed completely.

Dr. Ahn was pretty awesome. He was really nice and super patient with all my silly questions and comments during the procedure. Highly recommend!!!
