What are Lip Lift Surgery and Lip Augmentation?

Lip lift and lip augmentation are transformative procedures that cater to those seeking a more defined cupid’s bow, a fuller pout, or a rejuvenated smile. These procedures address concerns such as thinning lips, elongated lip area due to aging, or simply a desire for more voluminous lips and a more attractive smile.

Lip Lift Surgery Bay Area

A surgical lip lift modifies the cosmetic appearance of the upper lip to achieve a younger and more refreshed look. Upper lip lift surgery reduces the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose. This change accentuates the contour and the fullness of the upper lip, revealing more of the pink tissue (vermillion) and improving the visibility of the teeth when smiling. Dr. Xu meticulously performs this procedure to elevate the position of the lip, enhancing the shape and the overall facial aesthetics.

Lip Augmentation Bay Area

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure aimed at increasing the fullness of the upper and lower lips through non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers or surgical methods such as fat grafting. Dr. Xu uses advanced techniques to add or restore volume to the lips, creating a natural, plump appearance. The procedure can be customized based on the patient’s desired shape and volume, ensuring that the lips remain balanced with the overall facial features. Lip augmentation with Dr. Xu not only augments the size but also improves the shape and symmetry of the lips, providing a more appealing and youthful appearance.

Lip Lift Surgery & Lip Augmentation in San Francisco

A lip lift is a plastic surgery procedure that elevates the position of the lip to increase the prominence of the lip border and the fullness of the red part of the lip. Lip augmentation typically refers to procedures that add volume to the lips, such as fillers or fat grafting.

The longevity of lip enhancement results varies depending on the chosen procedure. Surgical options like lip lifts offer more permanent results, while fillers are temporary and may require regular touch-ups.

Recovery from lip enhancement procedures is generally quick, with most patients resuming normal activities within a few days. Dr. Xu will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and comfortable healing process.

The best way to determine if lip enhancement is suitable for you is to consult with Dr. Xu. During your consultation, she will assess your facial structure, discuss your aesthetic goals, and recommend the best approach to achieve the desired outcome.
