What is a Lip Lift?

A lip lift can enhance the appearance of your lips, giving you a more youthful appearance. Your lips are a focal point of your face. Lip lifts are a minimally invasive procedure with little downtime. Results from lip lift surgery are long-lasting. Results can be maintained and enhanced through sun protection and a healthy lifestyle.

Lip Lift Recovery

Lip lifts are performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthesia. This minimizes your downtime and maximizes your safety. After your lip lift, you may experience mild bruising that typically resolves in one week.

St. Louis Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery offers several lip lifts, allowing us to individualize each procedure to your specific needs.
