Benefits of Non-Surgical Lip Lift Surgery

In some cases, people are naturally blessed with full voluptuous lips, such as Angelina Jolie. In other cases, patients can change the position and appearance of their lips without needing any surgery or anesthesia.

Here, Dr. Barrera discusses how a non-surgical lip lift can help you get the lips you desire and why we find lips an attractive part of the human physique.

Why Are Our Lips of Aesthetic Importance?

Lips serve primary functions in our daily lives. Before we develop teeth, lips enable newborn infants to nurse from their mothers from the moment we are born. Then, as we grow older, they allow us to communicate and express our feelings and emotions.

A smile is considered an attractive expression, whereas a neutral face or a frown can be disconcerting. For these reasons, people with full lips and a smiley countenance are perceived to be more attractive and desirable company than those without.

How Can a Non-Surgical Lip Lift Help You?

A non-surgical lip lift helps patients seeking more full lips set in a more smiley position achieve these results without requiring anesthesia, surgery, or any downtime. Using a strategic combination of dermal fillers and other injectables, Dr. Barrera can help you achieve the lips you want within a twenty-minute procedure, from which you walk out of and carry on your everyday routine.

Benefits include:

  • Smooth gel consistency with a similar feel to natural lip tissue
  • HA is naturally found in the skin and lips
  • Minimal risk of reaction
  • Many different brands and formulations available for a customized lip appearance
  • Easily reversed if a patient isn’t happy with their results
  • Quick, in-office treatment with no downtime
  • Temporary results that last for 4-6 months

How Does a Non-Surgical Lip Lift Differ from Lip Lift Surgery?

Lip lift surgery, which can be approached through a variety of methods, provides permanent results via incisions and suturing around the nose and lips to pull the skin up. The procedure is highly effective for some patients, and older patients requiring more drastic intervention might benefit from the surgical option.

Non-surgical lift lifts, on the other hand, are a semi-permanent solution, lasting between 4-6 months, and suit patients looking to improve their facial countenance rapidly and without any downtime.
