Unlock a More Youthful Smile  

As we all know, our smile is a window to our soul and a cornerstone of how others perceive us. This is why we are thrilled to introduce a transformative option for enhancing your lips and revitalizing your overall appearance. Our lip lift procedure is a minimally invasive surgical approach designed to elevate and enhance the natural beauty of your lips. By precisely adjusting the positioning of the upper lip, this procedure achieves a more youthful and balanced smile without the need for fillers or non-surgical techniques.

Our skilled surgeons carefully reposition the upper lip during the lip lift procedure to create a harmonious and rejuvenated appearance. By shortening the distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip, this surgical intervention reveals more of the upper lip, resulting in a naturally fuller and more defined lip contour. The subtle adjustments achieved through the lip lift can unlock a more youthful and radiant smile, allowing your inner vitality to shine.

Our lip lift procedure offers a simple and refined approach to enhancing your natural beauty, providing impactful results that beautifully complement your facial features. If you seek a long-lasting solution to elevate and rejuvenate your smile, our lip lift procedure may be the perfect choice.

Your Lip Lift Experience 

At the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, you can rest assured that your lip lift procedure will be performed by one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin. During the procedure, a surgical technique is used to adjust the positioning of the upper lip. This reveals more of the upper lip, leading to a naturally fuller and more defined lip contour by reducing the distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip. The process is expertly executed to ensure minimal discomfort and a swift recovery, and with our skilled surgeons at the helm, you can trust that you are in good hands throughout the entire process.

Recovery and Results

Following a lip lift procedure, patients can expect a recovery period that is essential for optimal healing and results. This recovery phase may encompass temporary discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which are typical and to be expected. Patients are typically advised to follow post-operative care instructions provided by their surgeon, which may include cold compresses and prescribed medications. It is common for patients to experience some tightness or numbness in the treated area initially, which gradually subsides over time. 

Additionally, it is recommended that patients refrain from engaging in strenuous activities and follow specific guidelines for post-operative care, including restrictions on certain facial movements and avoiding pressure on the treated area.

As the healing progresses, patients will notice a gradual improvement in their lip contour and overall appearance, and they can expect to return to their normal activities within a few weeks, with full results becoming increasingly apparent as the healing process continues.
