The lip lift is a surgical procedure that can help enhance lip volume and provide a more youthful, attractive appearance without the use of dermal fillers or transferred fat. As a Fellowship trained, board certified plastic surgeon in NYC, Dr. Hutchinson has a keen eye for the artistry and balance required to produce elegant and personalized lip contouring results.
How is a lip lift different from a lip augmentation?
The biggest difference between a lip lift and a lip augmentation is that a lip lift doesn’t actually make the lips larger — it just makes the top lift appear fuller. Lip augmentation enlarges the lips through the use of fillers or fat grafting to the lips.
Are there any side effects?
Some patients have side effects from a lip lift. These are all temporary and may include swelling, bruising, redness, tightness, and a pulling sensation at the mouth.
