Your Lip Lift in Portland

It’s fairly common for our lips to lose their volume and start to appear thinner as we age. Over time, it’s also possible for the length of the upper lip to increase, lending you a more aged appearance than you’d like to see in the mirror each day. A surgical lip lift with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vila is the best way to correct this type of situation, which can allow you to enjoy plump, youthful lips that properly contribute to a sense of facial harmony and symmetry. 

If you’re ready to love the way you look, every single day, we want to hear from you! Reach out and set up your consultation with Dr. Vila to learn more about how this incredible procedure can help you out today!

Is a Lip Lift the Right Choice for Me?

During your consultation, Dr. Vila will walk you through all the available options, and help you figure out exactly the best way to reach the goals that brought you through our doors. Sometimes there are various ways to accomplish a given set of goals, so we’ll talk you through every alternative.

You’re likely to be a great candidate for a lip lift with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vila if you’re in Portland or the surrounding areas and you’re dealing with:

  • Decrease in lip size
  • Lost volume
  • Reduced fullness
  • Disproportionate lips
  • Imbalanced features
  • Lines and wrinkles

What Happens During the Lip Lift Procedure?

Dr. Vila performs the lip lift procedure in his office, under local anesthesia. When it comes to surgical procedures, the lip lift is relatively minimally invasive, and doesn’t involve anything too serious, in terms of your recovery time.

After numbing the treatment area with some injections, the area will be carefully measured. Small incisions will be made under the nose, where they’re well hidden, restoring the pout of the upper lip. This improves dental show and gives a perky appearance to the lips without any filler.

The procedure usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes to perform, and you’ll be able to go home the very same day. Since this isn’t as extensive a procedure as something like a full facelift, you’ll be dealing with a relatively minimal recovery period, which most patients really like.

What are the Benefits of a Lip Augmentation? 

  • A fuller, more attractive upper lip
  • Better, more symmetrical lip proportions 
  • Youthful and natural-looking results
  • An attractive smile that shows your upper teeth
  • Permanent lip enhancement
  • No more need to have repeated lip filler treatments
  • Short procedure time
  • Short recovery period

What Will My Recovery Period Be Like?

You’ll experience a relatively mild amount of swelling and bruising around the treatment area, which will resolve nicely within about 10 days. Your stitches will be removed after the first week, and we’ll set up a follow-up appointment with you to make sure you’re healing properly. You should expect to return to your daily routine within about seven to 10 days.
