Lip Lift Beverly Hills
The lips are a central part of the face and an important feature of femininity and attractiveness. Lips come in various sizes and shapes but there are certain characteristics that make lips attractive and in balance with the rest of the face. Lip augmentation is commonly used to treat smaller lips to give it more shape and size. Our expertise in beauty has shown that attractive lips are not just bigger lip. In fact, overly large lips can look unnatural and cheap. Dr. Jumaily has specialized training and expertise in what makes lip feminine. If you look at any face of a model that people find attractive, you will notice that there is a special relationship between the lips, upper teeth and size of the lips. If the skin of the upper lip is too long, and there is no upper tooth show when the mouth is slightly open, then augmentation is the wrong treatment. Augmentation will make the lips look larger but not attractive. There is a role for augmentation for patients who have thinner lips but a lip lift is needed to address the length. Lip lift will serve to shorten the upper lip, ‘roll out’ the lip which will increase the amount of red lip show, and allow for that just right amount of upper tooth show. Dr. Jumaily has over the years refined his technique to produce this attractive relationship that looks natural, sexy and feminine.
How is lip lift done?Dr. Jumaily has refined the technique of a lip lift to give the best natural results, hide the incision, and minimize recovery. Lip lift is done through a small incision hidden in the crease under the nose. The incision is sometimes extended inside the nostril for certain patients with favorable anatomy. The incision is closed with tiny sutures which are left there for approx. 1 week. The procedure is done under local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on patient preference.
What is the recovery after a lip lift?Dr. Jumaily is an expert in this type of procedure using the most advanced, effective and meticulous technique. The recovery is generally easy. There mild to no discomfort for 1-2 days initially. There is minimal swelling and rarely any bruising. The sutures are removed around day 7. Initially the incision can appear red as it is healing but this subsides week by week. Dr. Jumaily follows his patients very closely to ensure everything is healing optimally. As a general rule, the incision is hard to see after 6-8 weeks but results can vary depending on the individual.
