What is a Lip Lift?

A lip lift is a surgical procedure designed to make your lips look more visually fuller and contoured. This procedure typically requires a small incision at the corners of your mouth, nostrils, nose, or the piece of skin above the upper lip.

There are over five different lip lift surgery types. During your consultation with Dr. Bell, he’ll provide expert recommendations based on the desired results you’re hoping to achieve.

Lip Lift Surgery Types

  • Direct lip lift: Designed to make your lips look broader. A small piece of skin above the upper lip is removed. The lip is then pulled upwards to enhance the shape of your vermillion.
  • Subnasal bullhorn: Uses small incisions to remove some skin between the lip and nose. This lifts the upper vermillion lip to expose more of the pink portion.
  • Central lip lift: A small incision is made in the lower nose to shorten the space between the nose and upper lip.
  • Corner lip lift: Two small incisions are made at the corners of the mouth to enhance your smile.
  • Italian lip lift: Two incisions are made below the nostrils to create more pronounced philtrum columns and a subtle lift.

Who is the Best Candidate for a Lip Lift?

If you can answer “yes” to the questions below, you may be an excellent candidate for a lip lift in Toronto.

  • Is your top and bottom lip disproportioned?
  • Are you struggling with a loss of lip volume?
  • Do you want your lips to be more symmetrical?
  • Are you looking for a permanent solution to lip fillers?
  • Do you have a thin upper lip?
  • Do you have an elongated distance between the nose and upper lip
  • Do you want to expose more teeth when smiling?

Candidates struggling with one or more imperfections would be considered great candidates for a lip lift procedure. During your consultation with Dr. Bell, discuss your desired results and wants from facial plastic surgery. He’ll be able to create a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs and improves your visual appearance.

Your Lip Lift Consultation with Dr. Bell

Once you decide to get a lip lift, the first step is to schedule a lip lift consultation with Dr. Bell. During the consultation, you can ask any questions or concerns about the lip lift procedure. You’ll also get to discuss the desired results you’re hoping to achieve from the lip lift surgery.

Dr. Bell has hands-on experience helping countless women and men with lip surgery. He’s here to help you prepare and plan for the procedure and the recovery process.

What is the Cost of a Lip Lift?

Typically, pricing for a lip lift in Toronto starts at $4999. The cost varies according to the approach that is selected.

How to Prepare for Lip Lift Procedure?

After you provide a full breakdown of your medical history and your desired results to Dr. Bell, we’ll create a customized treatment plan for you. Dr. Bell will discuss the specifics in detail during the consultation. Before your lip lift surgery, you’ll also need to:

  • Quit smoking and drinking alcohol before the procedure. These habits can slow down healing and impact your recovery process.
  • Avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs, herbal supplies, and aspirin. These medications can cause excess bleeding during the surgery.

How is Lip Lift Surgery Performed?

At Toronto Plastic Surgeons, under the skilled leadership of Dr. Bell and his expert team, we specialize in a variety of advanced Toronto lip lift surgery techniques. Among these, the Bullhorn Lip Lift stands out for its precision and effectiveness. Dr. Bell, renowned for his extensive experience in the field, utilizes state-of-the-art technology and unique equipment, setting a high standard in aesthetic surgery.

Our approach involves making a meticulously small incision, typically above the lip, at the corners of the mouth, or under the nose. This technique, perfected by Dr. Bell and his team, ensures minimal scarring, blending seamlessly with the natural contours of your face. The dedication to perfection and the use of cutting-edge methods assure our patients of the utmost professionalism and care in enhancing their beauty.

How Long Does it Take to Perform a Lip Lift?

The Toronto Plastic Surgeons can perform the procedure in approximately 3 hours. Before they are driven home, patients will receive post-operative instructions from their doctors.

What is the Recovery Period Following a Lip Lift?

A lip lift procedure is notable for its relatively brief recovery period, especially considering its significant effect on a patient’s appearance. Typically, full recovery is achieved within 1 to 2 weeks after the surgery.

During this crucial recovery phase, Dr. Bell emphasizes the importance of adhering to the following guidelines to ensure optimal healing:

  • Refrain from Strenuous Activities: Avoid any heavy physical activity for about 1 week post-surgery to prevent any complications or undue stress on the healing tissues.
  • Gentle Mouth Movements: Patients should avoid aggressive or exaggerated mouth movements, including rigorous chewing, for the first week. This precaution aids in the healing of the incision site.
  • Managing Swelling and Bruising: Swelling and bruising are common but typically subside approximately 1 week after the procedure. Patients are encouraged to follow any personalized advice Dr. Bell gives to manage these symptoms effectively.
  • Suture Removal: The sutures are usually removed approximately 7 to 10 days post-procedure, marking an important step in the recovery process.

Dr. Bell will provide follow-up appointments as necessary to ensure a smooth and effective recovery. These appointments are crucial to post-operative care, allowing Dr. Bell to monitor the healing process and ensure the best possible results. His dedicated approach to post-operative care underscores the commitment to excellence and patient satisfaction at Toronto Plastic Surgeons.

Will I Have Scars After a Lip Lift Surgery?

A lip lift does require a few small incisions. Dr. Bell has over 25 years of experience. His attention to detail and careful approach will ensure there is minimal scarring.

Benefits of a Lip Lift

There are many benefits to a lip lift procedure. Some of the most popular reasons to choose this procedure over others include:

Increase Volume

The upper vermillion lip is the pink portion of your lip. As you age, the skin on your lips loses volume and elasticity. With lip lift surgery, you can increase the volume in this portion of your lips and achieve a more youthful appearance.

Shorten the Distance Between the Nose and Upper Lip

A subnasal lip lift helps shorten the distance between the nose and upper lip. This can enhance the shapes of your lips and improve the proportions.

Improve Your Smile

A lip lift surgery can also help reveal more of your teeth. This will improve your smile’s visual appeal and make your lips appear fuller.

Risks of a Lip Lift

At Toronto Plastic Surgeons, led by Dr. Bell, we prioritize patient safety and transparency. While Dr. Bell’s expertise minimizes risks, patients need to understand that all surgical procedures, including lip lifts, have potential risks. These risks vary depending on individual factors, which Dr. Bell will thoroughly assess during the consultation. These can include:

  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Asymmetry
  • Numbness or Altered Sensation
  • Swelling and Bruising
  • Allergic Reactions
  • The Need For Revision Surgery
