Why a lip lift?
The lips can be too thin, inverted, without curve, drooping, have an unbalanced aspect or even hide the teeth. These peculiarities may be related to aging or to a morphological defect.
The upper lip lift is a simple and very effective procedure that reduces the height of the upper lip by removing a strip of skin flush with the nostrils. This is a very effective lip and smile beautification technique because it increases the red lip, the teeth are cleared and the mouth is more attractive.
This operation is more rare, but can also be performed to raise the drooping angles of the mouth.
The procedure lasts 45 minutes and the final result is permanent after 3 months.
The pain is minor, and the scar is hidden around and inside the nostrils.

Progress of your transformation
During your first consultation with one of our specialised doctors, we will analyse together the scope of your objectives and expectations. This will allow us to define the methods of intervention and/or treatments required to meet your needs.
We will also take care to inform you of the potential limitations and inconveniences that may arise depending on said treatments or operations. We will also discuss pre- and post-operative issues in order to give you our recommendations and inform you of the actions and reflexes to take in case of complications. All important information will be given to you verbally and in writing.
You will have the opportunity to clarify any unclear areas and have all the key information to make a decision.
At the end of our first meeting, we will be able to:
- plan treatments and/or procedures (including type of anaesthesia)
- set up your medical file
- prepare a complete quote
This appointment may be the occasion to set a date for the operation if you choose to do so, and to inform you of the modalities of anaesthesia according to the solutions required by your desires. Of course, some decisions require time and we will be there to answer your questions and clarify your doubts.
It is possible to pay for your treatment in several instalments.
Following surgery, it is normal for your body to react. Some symptoms are common and by no means alarming. Symptoms that could lead to more serious complications are rare, and if they occur, our team of caregivers will be available to take care of you.
If you observe these symptoms, there is no need to worry:
- after 48 hours, a slight increase in temperature
- after 72 hours, small amounts of blood in the dressings
- a slight increase in inflammation or swelling
However, if you observe the following symptoms, please contact us:
- more than 38.5° fever and chills – severe swelling, especially if it is located on one side
- pain and redness of the operated area Keep in mind that your recovery period will depend on the type of surgery and factors specific to you.
We are all unique, so the details of your recovery cannot be entirely predictable. You begin a physical, but also emotional, transformation process. Be patient and let your body do what it does best. If you have any doubts, we are here for you.
The anaesthesia is chosen in consultation with you and your surgeon. Sometimes a pre-anaesthetic visit is necessary. For all anaesthesia, it is recommended to fast, i.e. not to eat 6 hours before the operation. The anaesthesiologist may refuse a patient who has not followed this instruction. Communication and trust are key from the first contact with your surgeon because working together can neutralise the risks.
During a general anaesthesia, the person is completely asleep while the anaesthesiologist meticulously controls and monitors breathing. For long procedures, we favour this type of anaesthesia because it provides a higher level of comfort.
Local anaesthesia with sedation
Sedation is a deep anaesthesia through a vein, the person operated on can relax without worrying about feeling pain. This method avoids intubation and the side effects of general anaesthesia.
The pain is interrupted locally or regionally through an anesthetic under the skin or directly on a nerve plexus. The injection at the beginning burns slightly locally to very quickly numb the area.
Communication and trust are key from the first contact with your surgeon because working together can neutralise the risks.
