Lip Lift

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.

What to Expect Before and During Your Lip Lift Treatment WITH OUR BOARD-CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON SERVING GATINEAU, OTTAWA, AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS

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.

Attend Your Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Berbari will go over your medical history and ensure you're a good candidate for this procedure.

Prepare for Surgery

Before your procedure, don't eat or drink for six hours and avoid taking blood-thinning medications like aspirin for two weeks. Don't smoke for several weeks before surgery, and don't consume alcohol for 48 hours, as these substances can impede the healing process.

Lip Lift Procedure

At your appointment, you will first be given a sedative and local anaesthesia to minimize discomfort. Your lip lift surgery will involve removing a small piece of skin just under the nose , but its exact location depends on the type of lip lift you're receiving. After lifting your lip to expose more pink tissue or correct any cosmetic concerns, your plastic surgeon will suture the area closed.

Potential Risks and Complications

Any surgery can lead to risks and complications. A lip lift may cause a variety of complications, including:

  • Scarring
  • 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.
