What is Lip Lift Aesthetics?
 Lip lift aesthetics aim fuller lips and a proportional face size by shortening the area between the nose and lips. It is an aesthetic surgery application that can be easily preferred by those with long or asymmetrical upper lip area and thin lips.
 The normal size of the area between the base of the nose and the beginning of the upper lip is generally considered to be 12-15 mm. Two factors are effective in having a longer distance than this. The first is the face measurements congenitally due to genetic effects, and the second is the sagging of the skin tissue as we age. No filling or different materials are used in lip lifting, which is one of the most effective solutions for this. However, if the patient requests, the doctor can also fill the lips.

Everything You Need To Know About Liplift

Generally, the prices of lip lift surgery performed with local anesthesia start from 4,000 TL and can go up to 15,000 TL and above. Among the factors that affect this price; There are important determinants such as the experience of the doctor and the examination fee, the type of anesthesia, whether the surgery will take place in the clinic or hospital, the province and the region.
There are certain methods of every aesthetic application or surgical procedure performed for this purpose. For lip lift surgery, the most widely used procedure in our country and in the world is tissue removal. In this technique, what is generally done is the removal of the tissue cut just below the nostril and the cut edges are stitched back together. This process can also be done by cutting the upper lip (vermilion border), but the base of the nose is more preferred.

Seam edge lines should be closed in cut layers to minimize and make sure the seam is placed under the skin. The success of the suture process depends on the experience of your physician, the structure of your skin, the fineness and quality of the thread used in sewing.

Although the operation is performed in this way in general terms, there is another important detail of the application that varies according to everyone, and that is the measurements. The patient's tastes and demands are essential in shortening the distance between the upper lip border and the base of the nose. However, it should not be forgotten that this measurement should be done carefully by the doctor, since each face should be suitable for its own proportion and not lose its naturalness.
The duration of the simple and effective procedure is 1 hour on average. Since local anesthesia is generally used, the patient will recover completely immediately after the operation and may be discharged on the same day. It is normal to see swelling in the next few days, as the body will react to the surgery and stitches by causing edema. This process takes about 3 days and cold compresses on the lips are effective in reducing swelling. If you feel pain, you can use pain medication prescribed by your doctor. The healing time of the stitches is between 5 and 7 days. If melting stitch is used, it will pass by itself, if it is necessary to intervene before it melts or if non-melting stitches are used, it is possible to take it on the date prescribed by your doctor. In a few weeks, the incision scars begin to heal and, depending on the success of the surgery, these scars become unclear over time.

Those who have lip lift surgery can return to their normal lives in a short time as the procedure does not cause great pain. In general, there are no restrictions on nutrition, it is sufficient to pay attention to the operation and the next few days.
If you are over the age of 18 and do not have any health problems that may prevent your surgery, you can have this surgery. In addition to this, we have listed the situations that require you to be a lip lift surgery for you:

  • If you want to have the golden ratio or the closest look on your face
  • If you are uncomfortable with the length of your distance between the lips and nose
  • If you want to equalize the distance between the upper lip-nose and the lower lip-chin
  • If your skin has sagging due to aging and environmental factors
  • If you have thin lips and you dream of a thicker lip look
  • If you wish "Kolumella", that is, your middle column of the nose to become clear
  • If you want to have a more effective smile.
It should not be forgotten that this application is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and a small cut is performed. For this reason, there is a scar in the cut area. In order to minimize this risk, it is important to choose successful specialist doctors. It will be helpful to see photos from previous surgeries performed by the doctor.

In the event that the leave is permanent or temporary, another issue that is as important as the doctor's choice is the patient's skin structure and response to wounds. If your cuts and wounds can heal in a short time and your skin does not react greatly, this may be a clue for you.
