The Lip-lift is an easy, simple procedure that can truly restore one’s pleasant countenance. In a youthful, pleasant face, the line between the upper and lower lips is a rather remarkably straight line. With aging, the corners of the mouth turn downward, creating a sad, angry appearance. In a twenty minute procedure under local anesthesia (less sticks than a Botox® injection), three or four sutures at the corner of the mouth, our lip-lift, can correct this. It is a very powerful technique which when combined with Botox® and filler for frown lines can get people to stop asking you if “everything is OK?” While EVERY incision leaves a scar, this scar tends to heal most inconspicuously especially in those with preexisting wrinkles. Occasionally an injection with Restylane is required to minimize a small indentation.
