The natural aging process can cause the lips to lose elasticity and volume, which can cause the lips appear thin and cause the corners of the mouth to droop. A lip lift procedure can restore youthful fullness to the mouth and help create a younger-looking appearance. Dr. George Varkarakis offers lip lift procedures to increase the definition of the mouth and enhance lip volume. If you are looking for an aesthetic procedure that provides lasting enhancement of the mouth, a lip lift might be the right choice for you!

What is a lip lift?
A lip lift is an aesthetic medical procedure that improves the definition of the mouth by elevating the position of the upper lip and adding fullness to the lips. During this procedure, Dr. Varkarakis will shorten the area between the nose and the upper lip, known as the upper philtrum, to broaden the smile and increase the definition of the cupid’s bow. Lip lift procedures can improve the definition of the mouth and enhance lip volume, creating a younger-looking appearance. This cosmetic procedure can be combined with fillers to further enhance the results of the lip lift.
Benefits of a Lip Lift:
- Increases the definition of the cupid’s bow
- Reduces the appearance of hooded teeth
- Decrease the space between the nose and the upper lip
- Enhances lip volume
- Gives the mouth a younger looking appearance
What is the recovery period?
We recommend patients take at least seven to ten days off of work to allow the swelling and bruising associated with the procedure to diminish. Swelling and bruising should completely disappear within two to three weeks of the procedure.
How long will results last?
Lip lift procedures are intended to provide lasting enhancement to the lips and mouth. Results of this procedure typically last for five to ten years. Results may vary.
Am I a candidate?
Most patients who are interested in a lasting enhancement of the mouth can benefit from this procedure. During your initial consultation, Dr. Varkarakis will review your specific case, general health, and desired aesthetic results and recommend the appropriate treatment plan to help you achieve optimal results.
