Is a lip lift right for me?
A lip lift is an excellent operation for women and men who want to restore a youthful look to their upper lip, which tends to lengthen with age, making the mouth smaller. This occurs more often in women. It is a popular cosmetic operation in the greater Atlanta area and across the USA. Why? Naturally we want to feel confident about how we look. Most people are very pleased with this operation which is why it remains so popular.
How long does a lip lift take?
The surgery takes on average one hour and is done in the office. Local anesthesia is usually all you need.
What about incisions?
The lip lift leaves a small incision hidden just under the nose where it meets the lip. Dr. Morgan explains everything during your consultation. Plus we give you everything in writing too. There’s nothing to worry about.
After your lip lift, you have a tiny bandage. You are sore at first but there is little pain. You eat soft food for a few days. Most people return to normal activities the next day although strenuous physical activity is not wise for the first week.
Can other procedures be done at the same time?
Yes indeed. Lift lips can be done in the office along with any other minor procedure, from Botox to laser treatments. Lip lifts are also often done with more extensive procedures, such as face lifts.
Is a lip lift covered by insurance?
This is a cosmetic procedure. You are responsible for the fee. We make it as easily affordable as possible.
What about risks?
Everything we do in life has a certain risk. Complications are very uncommon. The most common problem is that the body rejects a suture and you need an extra office visit to have it removed. It’s easy to find out more about the procedure. Just call us or send us a message using our contact link on this web site. We look forward to helping you!
