Whether the natural aging process or genetics have left you with thinning lips, Dr. Scott Haydon and his team of medical experts at Austin Plastic Surgery Institute & Skin Care Clinic can give you the full, plump lips you want.
What is a lip lift?
Women of all ages ask Dr. Haydon to perform the procedure to lift the vermilion border (edges of the lips), which gives the lips an enhanced appearance and defines the Cupid’s bow. It is usually done in conjunction with some fat grafting to help provide volume and fullness to the lip itself.
Dr. Haydon and his skilled medical team can perform a lip lift in less than an hour. To complete the procedure, a small strip of skin is removed from just below the nostrils. When the incision is closed, the upper lip is lifted for a fuller appearance and the scar is hidden within the nostrils.
Because a lip lift is so long-lasting it can almost be considered a permanent result, many patients opt for a lip lift to avoid the constant need for injections to maintain the look.
