Restore the definition to your upper lip and get back the confidence you deserve. Schedule your Lip Lift consultation with Dr. Santosa in Johns Creek, Georgia, today.

Natural-looking, painless results

What is a Lip Lift?

A Lip Lift is a procedure to give the lips a fuller, more pronounced appearance. This is done by shortening the space between your nostrils and upper lip.

The Difference

Lip Lift vs. Lip Fillers

With Lip Lifts, you are focusing on making your upper lip more pronounced by shortening the length of skin between your lip and nose. Lip fillers are used to plump the lips as they already are, adding volume but not changing the distance of your lip from the nose. Lip Lifts tend to yield more natural-looking results than fillers.

Say Goodbye to Unflattering Lips

What can Lip Lifts do?

Whether it’s due to age or genetics, some people’s top lip tends to become thin and far away from the nose. Lip Lifts get rid of that space and provide you with a more aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking, and pronounced upper lip appearance. A Lip Lift could be perfect for you if you are a healthy adult who suffers from an upper lip that is far from the nose or lacks volume. You should not receive a Lip Lift if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have underlying medical conditions, or are a heavy smoker and can not stop smoking for the two weeks prior to and after your procedure.

Lip Lift Procedure

Two weeks before the procedure, we will advise our Atlanta Lip Lift patients to avoid smoking, drinking, multivitamins, and anti-inflammatory medications. This promotes healthy blood flow for the best possible results.

During your procedure, Dr. Santosa will begin by cleaning around your nose and upper lip before using a local anesthetic to numb the entire area of treatment. Once you’re numb, she will make a small incision just below your nostrils. Dr. Santosa will gently pull the skin of your upper lip towards your nose, shortening the gap between them. After achieving the desired look, Dr. Santosa will close the incision with sutures and bandage it.

Exciting Results

Lip Lift Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

After your procedure, you may experience bruising and swelling for up to two weeks. You may return to your daily routine after twenty hours, but you should avoid heavy exercise and direct sunlight for at least a week. Avoid touching your incisions as they are healing with the exception of gently cleaning them with non-irritating soap and water. You should try to eat only soft or liquid foods for the first two days after your procedure to avoid straining your upper lip as it heals. You should be ready to return to public settings within about two weeks when the swelling and bruising subside, and your full results should appear in about six weeks.

Maintaining your Lip Lift Results

Dr. Santosa stays in touch with you throughout the healing process to ensure you have all the support you require as you go through this novel experience. She also gives her Atlanta Lip Lift patients supplements to prevent bruising. Make an appointment with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Katherine B. Santosa immediately, and rest assured that your best interests are considered.
