What Are the Reasons for Male Lip Enhancement?

There are several reasons men decide to undergo lip lift surgery. One of the primary reasons is to make the face appear more proportional, as men tend to have larger and more prominent features compared to women and desire a smile that matches these features.

Other common reasons men choose to get a lip lift include:

  • Achieve a more refined appearance
  • Desire for a stronger and/or warmer smile
  • Reduce the length of the philtrum, as a long philtrum may give an angry and heavy appearance
  • Emulate certain celebrities, such as Justin Bieber

What Are Differences Between Male Lip Lift Surgery and Female Lip Lift?

Male upper lip lift surgery is different from female upper lip lift surgery in many ways. The ideal philtrum length in males is about 13-15mm which is slightly higher than females. Male skin is often thicker than female skin, which has implications for the surgery and for the healing process.

Additionally, many men prefer to have facial hair such as mustaches and beards. For this reason, extreme attention to detail must be had when performing the male lip lift NYC as to not disrupt hair follicles. As a renowned hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Linkov understands the intricacies of hair follicles and growth to avoid hair loss following male upper lip lift procedure.

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.

Marina S.

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.

Wow is all I can say! Fantastic doctor that gives you an extremely pleasant, professional, and realistic experience. Would highly recommend and give 6 stars if I could.
