Youthful Appearance

A lip lift can restore lost volume in the lips, creating a more youthful and plump appearance. By lifting the upper lip, this procedure helps to reduce the appearance of thin lips and fine lines around the mouth, resulting in a rejuvenated look.

Improved Lip Symmetry

Uneven or asymmetrical lips can be corrected with a lip lift, achieving greater balance and symmetry in the overall facial profile. Dr. Ghazizadeh's precise techniques ensure natural-looking results that enhance the symmetry of the lips and surrounding features.

Enhanced Lip Definition

A lip lift enhances the definition of the lips, creating a more defined and prominent lip border. This improves the overall shape and contour of the lips, accentuating their natural beauty and adding to the aesthetic appeal of the face.

Permanent Results

Unlike temporary lip fillers, which require regular maintenance, the results of a lip lift are permanent. Once healed, the lifted appearance of the lips is long-lasting, providing lasting enhancement to your facial features.

Boosted Confidence

Achieving the desired lip aesthetics can significantly boost your confidence and self-esteem. With fuller, more defined lips, you can feel more confident in your appearance and enjoy a renewed sense of self-assurance in social and professional settings.

While lip lift procedures are often subtle, the results they produce are remarkable and quickly noticeable. This technique is commonly used to enhance the Cupid's bow, reshape the lip, and improve proportions of the mid-face. Based upon the technique agreed upon, lip lift techniques can be performed under local or light sedation and may be finished in a matter of minutes or can take up to two hours. Along with minor pain, you can expect bruising and/or swelling the first two weeks after a lip lift surgery. It can take a couple of months for the ultimate outcome of a lip procedure to be totally unveiled. After the swelling and bruising have gone down, you should see noticeable improvement and beautiful results.

There are multiple approaches for a lip lift. Dr. Ghazizadeh will select a technique based on the shape of your mouth and your cosmetic goals. The most common lip lift procedures are:


This is the most advanced lip lift technique and is the performed method that Dr. Ghazizadeh uses. A Sub-nasal lip incision is used at the junction of the nose and the lip. During this surgery, a carefully planned section of skin from beneath the nose is removed. The remaining white lip is detached and raised in the deep plane to allow repositioning without tension. This lifting surgery ensures the most natural appearance and minimal scar. The lips appear larger, increasing the volume of vermilion and emphasizing the Cupid’s bow.


This technique is used to raise just the lateral corners of the lip through a short incision directly on the lip border where lip liner is typically placed. This is often done in conjunction with a central deep plane lip lift but can also be done as a separate procedure under local anesthesia. The corner lip lift is designed and tailed to the anatomy to enhance the appeal of the vermilion, or lip line, along the entire length of the upper lip.


This approach is mostly historical and removes skin along the entire lip length through an incision on the upper border of the lip itself. This can lead to blunting of the vermillion border and is therefore not typically recommended.

Is there a non-surgical lip lift option?

No, there is no such thing a a non-surgical lip lift. There are lip procedures that are available using dermal fillers or neuromodulators to enhance lip shape and volume but these do not give the permanent improvement and dramatic result that a lip lift provides.

Can I travel after the lip lift procedure?

After a lip lift surgery patients typically stay in the local area for 5-7 days until sutures are removed. After this time it is safe to travel. While traveling is generally fine, it is advisable to avoid long flights or activities that strain the lips to optimize healing.

Will my lips look natural after the procedure?

Yes, your lips will look natural after a lip lift procedure when performed by an experienced and skilled surgeon like Dr. Shabnam Ghazizadeh. The goal of a lip lift is to enhance the natural beauty of your lips by shortening the distance between the nose and the upper lip, resulting in a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Each procedure is tailored to the individual’s unique facial features, ensuring that the results complement the overall harmony of your face. With meticulous attention to detail and advanced surgical techniques, the outcome will be a natural and subtle enhancement of your lips.

How do I know which type of lip lift is right for me?

A consultation with a qualified provider can help determine the best approach based on your anatomy, goals, and preferences.
