Lip enhancement procedures
Two common types of lip surgery are lip augmentation and the lip lift.
An injectable filler can be used for lip augmentation if your lips only need to be made to look a little fuller. For greater effect, a dermal allograft is a procedure in which the collagen of donated skin tissue is transplanted. If you receive a dermal allograft, it will take several days before you can return to work, but the dermis will become a part of your own tissue.
A lip lift is a different operation. It corrects the balance between the upper and lower lips. In a lip lift, the surgeon makes a gull-wing-shape incision under the nose, removing excess skin and tightening the muscles, which brings out the upper lip and creates the appearance of fuller lips.
In most cases, this can be done in the office, with minimal sedation. There is only a little swelling and bruising. Makeup should not be applied until visible sutures have been taken out, which will be done in five or six days. There should not be any visible scarring, but if there is, the surgeon can taken care of it with a laser procedure.
