Many people think the only path to beautiful full lips is lip fillers... which means repeated injections on a regular basis. As a quadruple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Alexander Zuriarrain is proud to offer lip lifts as a procedure to enhance the lips for years to come.
The technique shortens the space between the bottom of the nose and the top of the lip, creating lips that look fuller and more pronounced. Dr. Z strives to deliver the best lip lifts Miami has to offer and is also able to enhance the volume of the lips using fat taken during a liposuction procedure.
A lip lift is a simple procedure designed to elevate your upper lip. Since the procedure increases the amount of pink lip tissue visible, your lips will look fuller and more pronounced. If you're looking for a more defined cupid's bow, but don't want the "duck lip" look you might get from implants or fillers, then lip lifts might be a great choice for you.
Lip lifts can be done across the central part of the lip or at the corners. Dr. Zuriarrain will determine which lip lift technique is best suited for you.
The lip lift procedure is perfect for those who are tired of getting repeat lip injections. Maybe lip fillers bruise your lips each time, or maybe you're not always satisfied with the results. Perhaps you have had nodules form after lip fillers. Lip lifts are perfect for you if you're looking for a permanent and consistent solution to having beautiful full lips.
Another reason why Dr. Zuriarrain recommends a lip lift to many of his patients is that the procedure allows him to focus on the more nuanced structure and shape of your lips. Instead of just filling your lips all over, lip lifts are more customizable. You can choose to increase the peaks of your lips or minimize asymmetries.
If you have had a bad experience with lip fillers or simply didn't like the results from them, you might be a good candidate for a lip lift.
Other patients who consider lip lifts feel that the distance between the base of their nose and upper lip is too long. This procedure allows Miami lip lift patients to customize the outcome of their lips in a more nuanced way. The best way to find out if you're a good candidate for a lip lift is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Zuriarrain (Dr. Z).
A lip lift is a simple surgical procedure and does not require general anesthesia. After the consultation, Dr. Zuriarrain will come up with a surgical plan designed specifically for you. Before the procedure, you will receive local anesthesia. During the lip lift procedure, Dr. Zuriarrain removes a small piece of skin between the base of your nose and your upper lip. Using fine sutures and a very meticulous technique, he then closes the incision. You're advised to keep the area covered with an antibiotic ointment, and the sutures will be removed a week later.
Immediately following the procedure, you will notice your lips looking fuller and more pronounced. Swelling following the surgery is normal and typically lasts several days. A lip lift requires little downtime. You should plan to rest for 24 hours after surgery, avoid strenuous activity in the weeks after, and avoid sleeping on your face. You should be a non-smoker. Keeping your lips moisturized is important. Dr. Zuriarrain will give you specific instructions on how to clean the incisions as well as all other postoperative care.
