Lip Lift in Scottsdale & Avondale
As we age, the elasticity of the upper lip decreases and the lip becomes longer and thinner. This can hide the front teeth and result in an aged appearance. Less vermilion (the pink part) shows and vertical wrinkle lines appear. By performing the lip lift procedure, which is removing skin at the base of the nose in a very specific manner, the upper lip is shortened and more pink lip mucosa is exposed. This returns the upper lip to a more youthful position. The goal is to have several millimeters of upper teeth showing when the lip is at rest. The end result is a more youthful and pleasant shape to the mouth.
The Lip Lift Procedure is performed in our licensed state of the art surgical facility, usually under IV sedation. The procedure can be enhanced by placing a filler material (Restylane or Juvederm) at the same time to increase the fullness or volume of the lip and treat wrinkles.
“On the night of my procedure, Dr. Guyette called me to see how I was feeling. I thought that was magnificent and it was greatly appreciated! I felt very cared for!” Gordon Stein
