Throughout the ages, people have been attracted to full, voluptuous lips. You only have to look at paintings and sculptures from ages ago to understand the impact well-formed lips have on the observer.
Modern technology provides surgical and non-surgical means to achieve this look when your lips do not have the appeal you desire. Thanks to these techniques, the appearance of your smile and fullness of your lips can be enhanced with minimally invasive procedures.
Dr. Gary Linkov has extensive experience in both the lip lift procedure and lip lift revision surgery. He is known for his artistic skill, which results in aesthetically superior results for his patients. His attention to detail and the artistic nuance required to produce optimal results are unrivaled.
A lip lift is a fairly simple process that delivers the desired results after the patient has had sufficient time to heal. There are situations, however, when the procedure is not as effective as the patient would like. In some cases, time and circumstances, such as aging, may cause a lip lift patient to request a lip lift revision to restore the desired appearance.
To illustrate, when the space between the bottom of the nose and top of the upper lip, or vermilion, becomes elongated, you may look older. The upper lip may also grow thinner and begin to flatten. These changes in appearance are due to the aging process.
Lip lift revision requires not only the artistic skills of an experienced plastic surgeon, but also the ability to successfully create a balance between lip proportions and other features of the face. Dr. Linkov has the expertise and skill to provide a lip lift revision that restores balance and provides the appealing, youthful look you desire.
A natural appearance is the goal of every lip lift procedure. Additionally, the lip must remain flexible and soft so you can chew, speak and smile with ease. With expert skill, Dr. Linkov uses advanced techniques to achieve optimal results. Your natural appearance will be maintained while your lips are enhanced, and previous lip lift issues are corrected.
Lip Lift Scar Repair
Scar tissue can result from most surgeries, including lip lifts. Occasionally, a lip lift procedure will heal with evidence of the surgery left behind in the form of an unsightly scar. Often these scars are virtually unnoticeable, except to the patient. Some are more apparent and can cause a person to become self-conscious.
When undergoing cosmetic surgery, it is necessary to have realistic expectations regarding the outcome. Most surgeries will leave some scarring that is within acceptable limits in most cases, and particularly where facial plastic surgery is concerned. This includes lip lift procedures; but when the scarring is very noticeable, surgery to repair the scar may be advised.
The lip lift procedure may result in numbness and stiffness along with scarring. In some cases, there may be a slight change in the nostril position. Reversing these issues can usually be achieved with repair surgery. Dr. Linkov will consult with you regarding your repair surgery, so you will know what to expect in terms of recovery and healing.
Of all the facial plastic surgery procedures available, lip shaping is one of the most challenging due to the many facial muscles involved in moving the lips. The measurements required to produce the desired results with lip shaping make the procedure similar to microsurgery. Dr. Linkov has perfected the surgery with his skill and expertise.
