Full, well-formed lips are a wonderful asset to enhance your appearance. However, genetics and aging affect whether you have the full, balanced lips you desire. When the upper lip seems too thin or too long or the corners of the lips turn down, a lip lift surgery can improve the appearance of your mouth. Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics specializes in creating gorgeous lips for his patients of all ages at our clinic on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Some people are born with thin lips or more space between their nose and mouth. While this is a natural occurrence, it can make the face seem unbalanced. The upper pink lip can look too thin, and the mouth seems smaller. A lip lift can minimize this space and enhance the upper lip to improve the overall appearance of the mouth and provide facial balance.

Lips change with age, losing volume and sagging due to loss of collagen and fat. A lip lift can address these issues, revealing more of the pink lip and repositioning the upper lip. There are different techniques that are used to lift the lip for a more youthful appearance. Corners are lifted to erase a perpetual frown, and the upper lift can be redefined. Dr. Linkov customizes each lip lift procedure to meet the desires of his patients, creating the stunning lips they crave.

Cosmetic Lip Enhancement

Adult patients of all ages benefit from a surgical lip lift procedure. Some of us are born with a long space above the upper lip and under the nose, while other people acquire this look. No matter what your age, this procedure is designed to shorten the space above the upper lip. Even patients in their twenties undergo this procedure with fantastic results.

If your lips are not as full as your prefer and there is a long space above your lip, you may benefit from this procedure. In addition, patients who experience the phenomenon known as “duck lips” after filler injections, may instead be better served by a lip lift procedure. Fillers sometimes increase the anterior projection of the lips, while a lip lift restores a more natural curvature.

If you are interested in exploring whether a lip lift procedure is right for you, contact us at City Facial Plastics today. We will schedule a consultation appointment for you to meet with Dr. Linkov to discuss lip enhancement options.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.
