The lips are one of the most important facial features, with many cosmetic practices focusing on the lips to create an improved, youthful appearance. The lips start to show visible signs of aging much faster than other parts of the face. Our lips start to attain wrinkles and lines making them appear aged. Have you looked at your lips recently? Do they always seem to be turned downwards or have fallen from their plump condition? These concerns can be improved with a Lip Lift.

What is a Lip Lift?
A lip lift is an in-office procedure designed to elevate a thin or downturned mouth. This is a simple procedure that can give you amazing results. Lips can start to look permanently downturned or even fallen away from the nose with the loss of volume in the skin. By getting a lip lift procedure you can have fuller looking, elevated lips. Lip lift is an innovative procedure designed to overall improve the appearance of your mouth and rejuvenate some aging changes.

Choosing the Lip Lift Treatment
Dr. Picerno and Dr. Cote can determine if a lip lift would benefit you during a consultation appointment. To create a treatment plan they will look at the 3-Ds of your face. The 3-D’s help them address the different changes in the face to create the most balanced look. These 3-D’s are:
- Dermal: Skin changes that occur due to loss of collagen and elastin, as well as sun damage or movement.
- Deflation: The loss of volume that occurs in the face.
- Descent: These are changes in the skin which cause the skin to sag. This is most relative to the Lip Lift since many lips start to become longer over time.
Lip Lift Recovery
This procedure is done under local anesthesia in the office and only takes about an hour to complete. The recovery time for a lip lift is fairly quick, only taking about a week. While the incision is healing, you are free to apply makeup to the area to cover it. Your Doctor will provide you with a list of instructions to ensure that the healing process goes as smoothly as possible.
