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.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Male Lip Lift?

If you desire a more balanced appearance to match your masculine features, greater tooth show for a more vibrant smile, and to feel more confident about your appearance, a male lip surgery may be the right option for you. Dr. Linkov in Manhattan, NY understands that male patients in particular may feel apprehensive about undergoing cosmetic surgery, and does his best to individualize and normalize the process so you feel as comfortable as possible.

I met Dr. Linkov for a consultation. He spent quality time with me, going over what I was interested in having done and the best ways to achieve that. He has an excellent rapport with clients along with high-quality training and education. I wanted to start with some fillers to fill out my lips in certain places and did 3 areas of Jeuveau. His touch was so painless and I did not have any bruising whatsoever. I already see results and his filler placement was done with such perfection. I’m so happy with his work. I will be having a neck and lower facelift in the fall and I will only trust his expertise and hands. He really made me feel cared for, comfortable, and valued. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Gary Linkov.
