Though fillers add fullness to the lips, they're only a temporary fix. You may be wondering what else you can do to achieve this look.
A lip lift can increase the height of your lips, giving you a more youthful look with lips that are proportionate to your facial features.
Dr. Patricia Berbari provides cosmetic surgery options like lip lifts to patients throughout Gatineau, QC, and beyond.
What Is a Lip Lift?
A lip lift reduces the amount of space between the upper lip and the nose, resulting in a more pronounced upper lip that appears fuller. It's a procedure done under mild sedation in the operating room that's a good option for patients who want to add height, not volume, to their lips. Unlike fillers, a lip lift can result in permanent fullness and improve the visibility of your teeth when smiling.

Your lip lift surgery will involve removing a small piece of skin just under the nostrils and its exact location depends on the type of lip lift you're receiving.
Potential Risks and Complications
Any surgery can lead to risks and complications. A lip lift may cause a variety of complications, including:
- Poor wound healing
- Blood loss
- Nerve damage
- Allergic reactions to anaesthesia
The potential for risks and complications can be minimized when your treatment is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Berbari in Gatineau, QC, serving greater Ottawa.
