Permanent Lip Augmentation in DFW with Surgical Lip Lifts
Lip augmentation procedures of all types have entered the mainstream and become more popular every year. While lip fillers may have the biggest reputation, not everyone wants added volume. Additionally, fillers typically don’t last longer than a year before needing touched up. For permanent lip augmentation in DFW without added bulk or volume, a surgical lip lift remains the best choice.
Love your lips with lip lift surgery
A lip lift in Southlake, Texas is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin above the upper lip to shorten the vertical length between the nose and upper lip. As we age, the distance of skin from the base of the nose to the upper lip border generally elongates.
By shortening this space, our expert plastic surgeons create a more youthful looking lip with an enhanced “pout,” because more of the vermilion (pigmented part of your lips) is visible. We conceal the scar along the natural curvature in the base of the nose. When it comes to lip enhancement options in DFW, a surgical lip lift offers a natural-looking, perfect pout—permanently (not accounting for the continued natural aging of your skin)!
Types of lip lift surgeries
Generally, lip lifts fall into one of the following categories:
- Direct lip lift: Sometimes called a gullwing lip lift, this removes a thin strip of skin just above the upper lip before pulling the skin upward for a more pronounced vermilion.
- Subnasal bullhorn: Perhaps the most common lip lift approach, this procedure includes an incision hidden along the base of the nose before the center, right, and left of the upper lip are pulled up toward the nose.
- Central lip lift: Similar to the subnasal bullhorn, a central lip lift makes a small incision at the lower middle nose to shorten the space between the nose and lips.
- Corner lip lift: This version of the lip lift creates a more “smiley” look via two small incisions at the corners of the mouth. Corner lip lifts can be performed along with another lip lift to give fuller, more upturned lips.
