Lip Lift Surgery in Cyprus
We perform lip lift surgery for patients who prefer a permanent solution, which fillers and injectables cannot give.
The lip lift surgery in Cyprus is an in-office surgical procedure. It is simple and quick, and it is performed under local anesthesia. The aim of this surgery is lip lift and not lip augmentation, but it does make the lips look fuller because more of the inner lip is shown. Moreover, it allows more of the upper teeth to be visible when the lips are relaxed or when you are smiling, giving a great tooth show.
Surgery time: 40 – 60 minutes
Anesthetic: Local anesthesia
Downtime: 2 – 4 weeks
Of course. This is a combination many people choose when they want both a lift and volume for their lips. In this situation, lips must heal and swelling has to go before having fillers.
The main difference between dermal fillers and surgical lip lift in Cyprus is that the latter gives permanent results whereas lip fillers last a few months and then you have to have them again and again. Moreover, with the surgical lip lift there isn’t the risk of infection from the fillers.
Yes, you can have lip lift surgery given that you will quit smoking for at least 2 – 4 weeks during the healing period.
Lip Lift Surgery Procedure
There are different types of lip lift surgery based on the result the client wants to achieve, with the subnasal bullhorn lip lift being the most common lip lift surgery.
The procedure includes the removal of the skin right under the nose, from the outer side of the left nostril to the outer side of the right nostril. Once the piece of skin is removed, the skin under the nose is stitched up bringing the lips closer to the nose to give the desirable lip lift result. This type of lip lift has the benefit of having hidden stitches and invisible scarring since the stitching is made just under the nose.
Other lip lift surgeries in Cyprus are different as to where the skin will be removed from, to give the final look the patient wants. Some patients want a more defined cupid’s bow while others wish to get rid of the sad look the corners of their lips create. We always choose the best lip lift surgery based on our clients’ wishes and expectations.
The required downtime depends on each person and the results can take up to 3-5 months to be fully clear.
